Last month, Sprint introduced a new app for its customers that combines two suites of protective controls. Now Sprint Guardian is ready for launch.

Mobile security company Lookout powers the Mobile Security apps, while Safely handles the Family Safety app, a bundle of Sprint Family Locator, parental controls, and an app you can use to monitor texting while driving.

Both apps are grouped into Sprint Guardian, which is available in the Sprint Zone app on your Android smartphone.
