No Security is a live album by The Rolling Stones released by Virgin Records in 1998. Recorded over the course of the lengthy 1997–1998 worldwide Bridges to Babylon Tour, it is the band's sixth official full-length live release. It was not reissued by UMe when Universal reissued the 1971–2005 back catalogue.

Because of the risk of repeating songs recently covered on "Still Life" (American Concert 1981) and Flashpoint, The Stones carefully chose songs that had either never been on one of their live releases or had not appeared on a live album for a long time. Of the major hits, "The Last Time", "Respectable", and "Waiting on a Friend" are here, as well as standout album cuts such as "Gimme Shelter", "Sister Morphine", and "Memory Motel". In addition to four tracks from the recent Bridges To Babylon, special guests Taj Mahal and Dave Matthews are featured on No Security.

All tracks from live performances at the Arena Amsterdam, River Plate Buenos Aires, Zeppelinfeld Nuremberg, TWA Dome in St. Louis and MTV's Live from the 10 Spot.

The album was released in November 1998 and in support of it the band embarked on another tour. The No Security Tour was an arenas-only tour, crossing North America for 34 shows in hockey and basketball arenas.

No Security peaked at number 67 on the UK Albums Chart, and at number 34 on the US Billboard 200. It failed to achieve US gold record status, but sold over 300,000 copies.

The line "no security" appears in the song, "One Hit to the Body" on the Dirty Work album. "It's one shot when you love me, one shot when you leave me, I don't need no security, I just need me some peace."
