A Retail Authorized User is someone at least 18 years old who can perform certain functions that the wireless account owner can complete at an AT&T store. Retail Authorized Users are not required – adding them is up to you. Learn more about retail authorized users.
Both types of users may be asked to provide the wireless security passcode or other information before they can access the wireless account.
This user permission is designed to make it easier for you to do business with AT&T. You may be able to take advantage of some of our great offers without additional trips to the store or calls into Customer Service.
