Logging in to your CenturyLink email automatically

Your CenturyLink homepage gives you the choice of whether you want to stay signed in to your homepage and email inbox or automatically log out when you leave the site.

To log in each time

  1. Sign in to your homepage.
  2. Select the "Email Settings" option in the My Account dropdown at the top of your homepage, or click here to be taken directly.
  3. Click "edit" next to email address you wish to update
  4. In the Security column, choose "Restricted Privacy/Security" and click "save".

With restricted privacy set, you will be prompted to enter your password every time you try to access your email, regardless of whether you remembered to click the "log out" link last time you visited the site.

We recommend restricted privacy when you share your computer with another person.

To stay logged in

It's easy! . Next time you sign in to your homepage, you can check the box where it says "Keep me logged in." That's it!

Or, if you've already signed in, you can manage your security settings from the "Email Settings" option in the My Account dropdown at the top of your homepage, or click here to be taken directly.

There, click "edit" next to the email address you're interested in.  In the Security column, choose "Standard Privacy/Security" and click "save". Now you'll stay logged in until you choose to change it or purposefully log out.

Now, when you're done browsing and reading your email, you can just close your browser.

TIP: Perhaps you're having houseguests, or would just like a little extra security for a short time without changing your settings? Good news . you can always click the "log out" link on your homepage.

If you click "log out," you'll be asked to enter your username and password the next time you try to access your email, regardless of whether it's set up to remember you. The "log out" link overrides all settings and is your safeguard.

For security, you'll also be prompted to log in with your username and password if you go more than 90 days between site visits. 

As always, please store your username and password in a safe place.
