Today is the day you take charge and secure your account to protect yourself from unwanted changes, or even worse, someone using your calling data (CDRs) to steal business!

Access in the wrong hands can be devastating to a company, even a simple routing change can result in major losses. Updating your roster and insuring no former employees have access to your account is of BIG LEAGUE importance.

STEP 2: Secondly, you’ll want to ensure that your account has strong password protection. Like any other security credentials, it’s best practice to avoid repetitive passwords / PIN codes. We know 1234 and 0000 are super trendy and fun, but let’s try to keep these credentials unique and updated regularly.

STEP 3: Lastly, we require that the customer requesting support provide us with their verification methods whenever an account change is requested. So let’s make sure these updated passwords are stored in a safe and memorable place. Adding protection is simple, safe, and frankly necessary.
