FRITZ!Box 7581 Service - Knowledge Base
Extra confirmation to configure certain functions
If the message "The procedure requires extra confirmation" is displayed while setting up the FRITZ!Box or executing certain functions (for example setting up call diversions or loading factory settings), then this is a security function of the FRITZ!Box. This way sensitive settings that could be misused by unauthorized users are only available to on-site user with direct access to the FRITZ!Box.
Every time you log into the user interface, you will be asked once to confirm that these functions may be configured.
You can either press a button on the FRITZ!Box or use a telephone connected to the FRITZ!Box to confirm that you wish to configure these functions.
