More about notification options

You can set up automatic notifications about events that occur when you are using Optum ID, including:

  • Failed Login
  • Successful Login
  • Account Recovery Attempt
  • Locked Account

These notifications alert you that your account is being used; if you are not using your account, there is a security problem.

Notifications can be sent to your email address or to a mobile phone. Your email address is verified when you create your Optum ID. You can add a mobile phone number to your profile on the Manage Verification Options tab of the Manage Your Optum ID page. Once the phone number is verified, it can be selected as a notification method.
