MyFRITZ! login failed

You cannot log in to myfritz.net or the MyFRITZ! home page of your FRITZ!Box. After you enter your account information, the error message "Login failed" or "Invalid username or password" is displayed.

Since your FRITZ!Box only transmits the IP address where it can be reached in the internet to the MyFRITZ! service but not any personal data, two different login processes take place when accessing your FRITZ!Box with MyFRITZ!:

  • Logging into the MyFRITZ! service
    • First you log in to your MyFRITZ! account via the myfritz.net website, using your email address and personal MyFRITZ! password.
    • This login information is saved in encrypted form on the MyFRITZ! servers when you create your MyFRITZ! account and verified when you log in to myfritz.net. Then you are redirected from myfritz.net to your own FRITZ!Box.
  • Logging into the FRITZ!Box
    • After you have been automatically redirected to the MyFRITZ! home page of your FRITZ!Box, you then have to log in to your FRITZ!Box itself. Your FRITZ!Box has its own user administration for this purpose that is independent of MyFRITZ!.
    • User names and passwords of FRITZ!Box users are not known to the MyFRITZ! service or AVM, they are only stored in the FRITZ!Box and verified when logging into that FRITZ!Box.

Depending on whether you are unable to MyFRITZ! service or your FRITZ!Box, follow the instructions in the corresponding section.
