ArticleDETAILED INFO

What is ZenKey

ZenKey’s an app that gives you a more secure way to sign in online. Unlike other third-party sign-ins, ZenKey uses our network to verify your identity.

Get a first look at ZenKey
You’ll get to experience how ZenKey works with AT&T websites. Over time, we’ll continue to improve the app and how you’ll interact with it.

Keep in mind, using ZenKey is optional. Opting into ZenKey won’t disable your existing sign-in capabilities. You can still use your AT&T user ID and password to sign in to web-based applications and mobile apps, like myAT&T.

How it works
After you create an account:
  • You’ll get your ZenKey ID that’s linked to your AT&T user ID. ZenKey uses this ID and your AT&T profile info to confirm you’re really you. It also verifies your phone number and SIM card to provide an extra layer of protection.
  • When you connect to an app or website that accepts ZenKey, we’ll pass along the info you agreed to share during setup. This provides a fast and secure way to connect.

For example, say you want to transfer money online. You sign in to your bank’s app with ZenKey. The ZenKey app will verify your identity and grant access to the bank’s app or website. When you request the money transfer, the bank will send the authorization notice to you through ZenKey. Simply approve the request and you’re all set!

About ZenKey
ZenKey was born out of a unique collaboration among the 3 major U.S. wireless carriers. The carriers work together to build a more secure authentication platform that verifies your identity using multiple methods for all. ZenKey collects and shares device and account data with your wireless carrier. Using this info, you can easily and more securely authenticate, sign up, and sign in. Learn more about ZenKey
