What is a security code?
The security code is a 3 digit number designated by you. You will be asked to enter your security code when placing calls. Security codes are used for your added security, and to enable multiple users to use the 'pinless dialing' feature when dialing from the same phone number.

A roommate (or another member from same household) wants to
sign-up to Interpreter.com under a new account. They would
still be able to utilize the 'pinless dialing' feature, because
all they need to do is enter their security code to distinguish
themselves from their roommate.

You can edit your security code by doing the following:
When do I use the security code?
- On the main account screen, under "Account Profile", click on "Edit Security Code."
