Not wishing to repeat songs on previous live albums Still Life (1982), Flashpoint (1991) and Stripped (1995), the Rolling Stones for the most part chose songs that had never been on a live release, including four from the band's most-recent studio album Bridges to Babylon (1997). Taj Mahal and Dave Matthews appeared as special guests. The tracks were taken from live performances at the Amsterdam Arena, Capitol Theatre (Port Chester, New York) (for MTV's Live from the 10 Spot), TWA Dome (St. Louis), River Plate Stadium (Buenos Aires), and Zeppelinfeld (Nuremberg).

The album was released in November 1998, and the band thereafter embarked on another tour, the No Security 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, selling more than 300,000 copies. The album was not reissued by UMe when Universal reissued the 1971–2005 back catalog.
