How to Reset your Email Password using myAT&T

 

You are here because you can't sign in to your email or you forgot one of your many passwords. Resetting your password is one of the fastest solutions. Let's get started!

How To Change Your Password

Go to www.att.com or use the myAT&T app:

  1. Login to the myAT&T app, scroll, and select "My plans & features"

  2. Hit the "plus" button next to your service and select "Manage my network & email"

  3. Select "Change Email Password" 

Note: If you are still unable to log in after resetting your password, wait 12 hours for the system to update and try again.

Security Questions Help & Free Accounts

If you recently attempted to reset your password, you can use your account at www.att.com to reset it. Please note:

  • The email must be tied to an active account for a password reset to work
  • Free emails do not have the option to reset via an att.com unless there is an account tied to it

Free Email 

A free email is a standalone email account that once was tied to an AT&T account. Once that account is canceled, AT&T no longer has the ability to reset your password. In order to reset your password, you must use your security questions to reset it

If you do not remember your security questions/ answers. AT&T WILL NOT reset your account. This is done to protect personal information since we cannot validate the email address. It is like giving away the keys to your car without verifying it is belongs to you.  AT&T currently has no workaround for these types of issues and is unable to assist.

Hi @Bronco66,

 

Sorry to read of the trouble you are having. Please make sure you have the latest browser version. Also, on this page you will see a section labeled Internet Hot Topics. You will find a link labeled Email Login Woes. Click on that, you will find some regarding hacked ID we highly recommend looking at. If you are on a browser, the link will be to the right. If you are on a mobile device, scroll down to find it.

Hi, I have a sbcglobal.net account and I guess for security reasons the account has recently been logged out. The password has always been saved to all my devices so It's been a while since my last login. I forgot my password, username, and the answers to my security questions. Is there another way I can access my account?
The email is :

I'm unable to logon to my email account. I go through password reset and the only option I'm afforded is the two challenge questions. I KNOW my answers are correct and typed correctly, yet I'm being told that one or both of them are incorrect. How do I resolve this?

hello! I'm trying to change my password and when I try to, its not showing me the security questions. its just blank and I'm not sure what to answer or put in the space below. I have tried changing security settings but I still need to answer it before it will let me do anything. should I just contact support? ive tried searching the posts here and no luck. xbox account has been hacked and I'm pretty sure my email too, so trying to change password asap.  tnx to anyone that can help.

edit: I just realized that maybe hacker put blanks on security questions? maybe?

btw I have tried putting blanks and random answers in there

I can't log into my Yahoo at&t email account I "ABSOLUTELY" am giving it the correct password and it will not let me in. This happened about 4 weeks ago when once again I gave it the "correct password" and it still would not let me in and forced me to change the password again. I am sick of this hassle. Please get rid of Yahoo !!! It is a total pain. I am trying to read my email now so I can get the code it sent me to log into my AT&T account so I can change my auto pay credit card #. Around and around and around we go. I am about ready to quit AT&T because of this. Last time I had to get on the phone with AT&T for 30 minutes to keep my old password. You have a serious system problem and will start losing customers like me.
