What is my passphrase?


To maintain the highest security standards, 8x8 Support will ask you to confirm your identity and ownership of your account when you contact 8x8 intending to make changes and requests involving proprietary information. This is done by verifying your passphrase and your account privileges or account admin status.

The passphrase is separate from your 8x8 application password. The passphrase is a private identifier first created during your initial 8x8 setup. 

The following requires a passphrase and account privileges or admin status.

  • Account-specific information
  • Phone system changes
