Additional Security Tips
|For increased security, add a passcode to your accounts that do not already have one and change any default passcodes to strengthen them. You can easily do this through your AT&T account management page or by contacting the customer service number on your bill.|
|Change “default” passwords on equipment and devices. Scammers know default passwords and leaving it unchanged leaves you open to hackers.|
|Only share information over the phone if you made the call to a number you know is right.|
|Ignore phone calls from numbers you do not recognize.|
|If you get a call and later realize it may not have been legitimate, contact the government agency or company to verify. Call the entity’s phone number found from a trusted source.|
|Only provide remote access to your computer when you have initiated the service call and know the company is legitimate.|
|Create multiple passwords to use on different websites.|
Fraudsters can try to take advantage of you by phone, email, text or social media. If you think a caller is trying to scam you, hang up. If you receive a suspicious text message, forward it to 7726 (SPAM). If you suspect you are a target of fraud on your AT&T mobile phone account, you can report it to our Fraud team here. If you suspect fraud on another account, call the customer service number on your bill for help.
