Get Info on Passcodes for Wireless Accounts

Your wireless account is protected with a passcode. This passcode is different from your sign-in password, and isn’t related to your device or voicemail.

Quick answer

What is a wireless account passcode?

When do I use a wireless account passcode?


Be careful who you share your passcode with

For your security, only share your wireless passcode with people you trust to manage your wireless account. You and anyone you authorize can use the passcode to access your account.

Heads up: Did you combine your wireless service with your AT&T Internet, U-verse® TV, and/or DIRECTV® service, use the passcode for the combined account. Learn about the combined account passcode.

What to know about extra security

Did you add extra security to your wireless account? If so, we require your passcode for online account access. Plus, we may require it for managing your account in a store.

Heads up: You can only add extra security to wireless accounts that aren’t bundled with AT&T Internet, U-verse TV, or DIRECTV.
