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, then this is a security function of the FRITZ!Box. This way sensitive settings that could be misused by unauthorized users (for example setting up call diversions or loading factory settings) 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.

1 Confirming execution with a button

  1. Push the "WLAN" or "DECT" button on your FRITZ!Box briefly when the FRITZ!Box user interface asks you to do so. The LEDs on the FRITZ!Box flash briefly to confirm it.
  2. Then, click "OK" in the window "Procedure confirmed" in the user interface to conclude the procedure.

2 Confirming execution with a telephone

Important:IP telephones (for example FRITZ!App Fon) cannot be used to confirm the execution of procedures because they cannot send control codes to the FRITZ!Box.

  1. Enter the code displayed in the message in the user interface on your telephone and press the call key (lift the receiver).
  2. Hang up again after about 3 seconds.
  3. Then, click "OK" in the window "Procedure confirmed" in the user interface to conclude the procedure.

If you have to change security-relevant settings remotely on a regular basis, then you can disable the function under "System > FRITZ!Box Users > Login to the Home Network" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
