    Do I need a Telstra ID?

    You don’t need a Telstra ID to use the My Telstra app but for security reasons, you’ll be limited in what you can do.

    To find out if you’ve already signed in using your Telstra ID on the app, sign in and see if your name appears in the Profile.

    I know my Telstra ID

    Awesome! You’re ready to make the most of the My Telstra app.

    Frequently asked questions

    If you can’t sign in:

    1. Check you have a working internet connection
    2. If you haven’t yet signed in with your Telstra ID, make sure you’re connected to the Telstra mobile network - not a Wi-Fi network
    3. Make sure your username and password are correct
    4. Be sure you’re the legal account holder or you have full authority on the account
    5. Check whether you’re using a Telstra Enterprise or Government account? My Telstra is for personal and business customers
    6. There may be technical issues. If so, wait a few minutes then try again.

    The My Telstra app will automatically lock you out of your account if you enter the wrong password three times in a row.

    The My Telstra app notification settings are set by your device operating system, not within the app.

    Apple users

    1. Go to Settings and select Notifications
    2. To choose when you want most notification previews to appear, tap Show Previews, then select an option – AlwaysWhen Unlocked, or Never. You can override this setting for individual apps
    3. Tap Back, tap an app below Notification Style, then turn Allow Notifications on or off.
      If you turn on Allow Notifications, choose how and where you want the notifications to appear for the app – for example, on the Lock screen or in Notification Centre. You can also set a notification banner style, sound, and badges for many apps.
    4. Tap Notification Grouping, then choose how you want the notifications grouped:
      • By App: All the notifications from the app are grouped together
      • Automatic: The notifications from the app are grouped according to organizing criteria within the app, such as by topic or thread
      • Off: Turn off grouping

    Android users

    In your Settings app on your phone:

    1. Select Apps & notifications

      • You can turn off all notifications for a listed app
      • To pick specific categories of notifications, tap the app's name
      • To see more apps, tap See all from last 7 days
      • Tap Most recent or Most frequent to sort that way

    Tip: If you don't see Recently sent, you're using an older Android version. Instead, select App notifications and select an app you want to manage. You can turn notifications, notification dots, and notification categories on or off. If an app has categories, you can tap a category for more options.
