AT&T Locker is an attractive free cloud backup/digital locker service, offering no less than 50 GB of space to those interested in keeping their files safe. Sadly, AT&T has decided to shut down this service in early August, and the official Locker website already displays a notification with the relevant details.
In addition to the notification mentioned above that appears on the official AT&T Locker website, existing users of this service also received an email thanking them for using the service and detailing what is going to happen. This email reads "We're discontinuing AT&T Locker, and access to your Locker account will close on August 3, 2017. All photos, videos, contacts, music, and documents stored in your Locker will be permanently deleted after that date." It also reminds that new files cannot be stored "after June 4, 2017." Strange enough, because I got this email a few hours ago, and June 4 has been in the past for almost a week now.
AT&T Locker users can move to one of the existing similar free cloud solutions available in the wild, such as OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, and so on.
