Changing the card passwords for your Encrypted Wavelength service

Important: Remember to keep track of your card passwords. Lumen cannot retrieve or reset passwords for you. If you forget your passwords, we must send a technician to both locations to physically remove and reseat both cards—and you will be charged for this service.

To change the card passwords for your Encrypted Wavelength service:

  1. Click Inventory, then click Inventory.

    Control Center displays a list of all services assigned to the accounts under your enterprise ID.

  1. Search for the Encrypted Wavelength service you want to work with. (In the Products column, look for Wavelength—Encrypted.) When you find it, click the blue service ID link for the service.

    Control Center displays details for the service you selected.

  1. Click Encryption Management.

    Control Center displays information for the Encrypted Wavelength service such as the location of the two cards, bandwidth for the service, and whether the service is protected or unprotected.

    • If the service is unprotected, you see one path: Work.

    • If the service is protected, you'll see two paths: Work and Protect.
