Good to know
  • If you use a wireless number to sign in to your wireless account, you may see an ID prepopulated for it. We set up this security measure in case you don't remember it. Don't worry, this ID is correct, and the password you use when signing in with your phone number will work.
  • You own your ZenKey identity, which is linked to your AT&T account. This lets us confirm you’re really you. You can't change the ID linked to your ZenKey identity. Plus, at this time, your ZenKey identity remains with your AT&T account if you cancel service.
  • Only download ZenKey app from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
    • Make sure you're using the latest version of the app for the best experience.
    • If you have an Android® device, be sure you have the AT&T Security Services app or a UICC 310-410 H SIM card. You can buy the compatible SIM card from an AT&T store.
