One thing you will need to be wary of is the version or model of your phone. The app does not support pre-Android 5 and pre-iOS 12 versions.

The next step is setting up your account. The app will require you to sign in and if you have already set up your account on the website, you will use the same credentials here.

How do you find out what your account number is? Check your welcome letter or your bill for your account number. If you cannot find both of these, email or call your provider to ask them to send you the number.

You can find multiple self-help tools on their websites, just like the videos and articles in their app, which we talked about before.

A few things that need to be noted here are the things you need to do when you call CenturyLink customer service:

  • Have Your Account Number on Hand: The customer support agent might ask you for your account number, so it is necessary that you have it on hand.
  • Confirm Your Identity: To ensure that your account is not being misused, CenturyLink customer service agents will ask you to confirm your identity by telling them your social security number.
