Use T-Mobile ID to self-service multiple accounts and lines, using just one email address. Your T-Mobile ID profile is intended to link the services that you use with T-Mobile, not just the lines on your account. To prevent permission level issues, don’t link multiple phone numbers from one account to the T-Mobile ID.

- When prompted to change your password on My T-Mobile or the app, update the password so that you don't get locked out of your account.
- If your phone has a compatible biometric scanner (such as Touch ID or Face ID), you can use it on the T-Mobile app so you can sign in securely without having to remember your password.
Forgot your password?
No worries! Click Forgot Password? on My T-Mobile.com, and follow the prompts to reset it.
T-Mobile offers multiple options for account security (multi-factor authentication) to keep your account secure by adding an extra layer of protection for your online login.
- Two-step verification requires you to pass an additional verification step when signing into your account.
- There is a 24-hour delay between changing your two-step verification settings, and those settings becoming active. During that delay, call 1-800-937-8997 for authentication.
- When Always Require is set to ON, you'll be required to complete a second verification method every time you log in.
- This requires two-step verification setup.
- T-Mobile reserves the right to initiate two-step authentication at any time to keep your account secure.
Two step-verification options
After setting up the two-step verification during registration, you can also use these methods to authenticate:
- Security questions: Allows you to set security questions to confirm your identity.
- SMS: Allows you to confirm your identity by text message to your T-Mobile ID.
- Fingerprint or FaceID for two-step verification if you have the T-Mobile app installed.
- Google Authenticator
- Google Authenticator app, available to Android 2.1 and iOS 3G and newer devices, required as a part of a two-step verification set-up.
- To disable this option, select No thanks.
- Once Google Authenticator is set up on your T-Mobile ID, you can complete two-step verification using the Google Authenticator app instead of SMS, Fingerprint, or FaceID.
Update your account profile, including name, email, password, two-step verification, and the phone numbers linked to your T-Mobile ID.
