ArticleDETAILED STEPS

Before you begin

  • If you created an ID when your internet was installed, your ID is already activated.
  • Look for your ID and temporary password in 2 separate emails from AT&T. You’ll need these to sign in.
  • If you can’t find the emails, we can help you find your ID or reset your password
  • After you activate the ID we emailed to you, you can change your ID to something that’s easy to remember. FYI: New IDs have to be email addresses.
