Introduction

All Comcast Business Voice, Business Trunks (SIP or PRI) and Business VoiceEdge customers will receive a unique account-level Security PIN that is required for managing certain voice features and accessing call detail records and utilization reports.  The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) mandates that this information, known as Customer Proprietary Network Information or CPNI, must be protected by a password or PIN online.  

If you call in to change certain voice features such as call forwarding, you will be required to authenticate that you are an authorized user on the account and provide the Security PIN. Follow the instructions below to enter your Security PIN to unlock online features or to edit or retrieve your Security PIN.

Note: Only the Primary Manager for an account can unlock the account and view or change the Security PIN.

Enter your Security PIN and set security question & answer

Sign in from Comcast Business Internet connection

As a Comcast Business Internet and either Business Voice or Business Trunks customer, you are now able to automatically authenticate for CPNI access while connected to your in-business network. If you are a new Business Voice or Business Trunks customer who has Business Internet, signing into business.comcast.com/myaccount for the first time from a computer or mobile device connected to your in-business network, you will be automatically authenticated to view Business Voice call history and call detail records and access certain Business Voice or Trunks features without needing to enter a Security PIN. You will also be prompted to set up a security question and answer as an alternate means of authentication in addition to the Security PIN. You can view and change your Security PIN or security question and answer following the instructions below.

Note: For Business Internet customers with one or more Static IPs, it may take up to 24 hours after installation before automatic CPNI authentication can be performed.

After activating your online account at business.comcast.com/myaccount, Business Voice and Business Trunks customers will be prompted to enter the Security PIN on the Account Details or Manage Phone Services pages.
