Setting up MyFRITZ! report

MyFRITZ! informs you via email on a regular basis about the status of your FRITZ! products, available updates, and other news, logins to your FRITZ!Box from outside the home network, and if you wish, it helps you when you have forgotten the FRITZ!Box password.

If you want to have MyFRITZ! send you this information via email, all you need to do is register your FRITZ!Box with MyFRITZ!. If you did not already do this when setting up your FRITZ!Box or after updating FRITZ!OS, you can do this at any time using the FRITZ!Box user interface.

You will then receive an email with a confirmation link for your FRITZ!Box. Setup is complete once you click on it. If you do not confirm the email, the MyFRITZ! service sends the email two more times. If you also do not confirm these emails, your email address is deleted from MyFRITZ! and the report is not set up.

If you want to access your FRITZ!Box over the internet, you can also set up a personal MyFRITZ! account and internet access to your FRITZ!Box after you have finished setting up the MyFRITZ! report.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.
