Manage DVR online (not using an app)

I used to be able to manage my DVR online, not through an app. How do I get back to the manage online page that used to be served up by Yahoo? 

 

I will NOT grant ATT rights to my contacts, call info, photos, location, ect simply to use an app to manage my account -- I DON'T trust them to not vacuum up (more of) my personal info and sell it.

Sorry, all DVR management was moved to the app Nov. 2017.

Ok. Thanks for confirming.

 

Guess I have to suffer using the on TV search since I don't trust ATT with all the data they want to simply use an app. They have no reason to see my calls, location, photos, ect.

The Uverse app can trace phone calls?

Location
  • approximate location (network-based)
  • precise location (GPS and network-based)
Phone
  • read phone status and identity
Photos/Media/Files
  • read the contents of your USB storage
  • modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
Storage
  • read the contents of your USB storage

I didn't check iOS since I don't have that type of device.

...And who knows, maybe someone has uverse with a different mobile provider and ATT is using the uverse app to scrape your data and sell it.
