FRITZ!Box 6840 LTE – Service

Setting up user accounts in the FRITZ!Box

Setting up individual user accounts allows you to grant each user his own password-protected access to the FRITZ!Box user interface and the MyFRITZ! or FRITZ!NAS services. In addition, you can also allow a user to access the FRITZ!Box services for which he is authorized from the Internet. In addition to specifying individual login data for each user account, you also assign rights to the user. This means that you define which FRITZ!Box data a given user is allowed to view and edit.

Important:You can set up a maximum of 18 user accounts.

Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for your FRITZ!Box.

1 Preparations

Before you can set up different user accounts, you must first set up a FRITZ!Box user who has the right to configure the FRITZ!Box. You cannot login with a FRITZ!Box user name and password until such a user has been created:

  1. Click "System" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "FRITZ!Box Users" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click the "Add User" button.
  4. Enable the option "User account enabled" and enter your user name, e-mail address and your password.
  5. Enable the option "FRITZ!Box Settings" under "Rights". You can assign additional rights according to your individual needs.
  6. Click "OK" to save the settings.

2 Setting up a new user account in the FRITZ!Box

  1. Click "System" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "FRITZ!Box Users" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click the "Add User" button.
  4. Enable the option "User account enabled" and enter a name, a valid e-mail address and a password for the new user.
  5. Enable the option "Access from the Internet allowed" if you also would like to allow the new user to use the FRITZ!Box services for which he is authorized over the Internet.
  6. Specify which services the user is allowed to use under "Rights".

    Note:You can find more information in your FRITZ!Box's manual and the online help.

  7. Click "OK" to save the settings.
  8. Click on the tab "Login to the Home Network" and enable the option "Login with FRITZ!Box user name and password".
  9. Click "Apply" to save your settings.

Now you can only login to the FRITZ!Box user interface and/or use the services if you enter a user name and valid password, according to the rights you assigned.
