Password Protect Your Voicemail

Dallas, Texas August 5, 2011

Today, customers have the option and are strongly encouraged to password-protect access to their wireless voicemail. Beginning August 5, voicemail accounts for new customers, those who change phone numbers, upgrade to Visual Voice Mail, or create a new voicemail box will default to a password required setting to check voicemail from their wireless or any other device.

Although AT&T strongly recommends using a password, customers want a choice. Customers may opt out of using a password, but only after the initial password is established and they affirmatively turn off the password feature from the main menu.

New and existing AT&T customers may visit www.att.com/vm for easy step-by-step instructions for setting and turning on a password. Here, you can also learn how to reset your current password. You can also find details on AT&T's commitment to privacy in our Privacy Policy at www.att.com/privacy.
