  2. Log in with your XFINITY username or email and password.
  3. Select TV App Settings from the Settings tab.
  4. Move the slider next to the My Account app to the right to access and create your PIN.
    The Limit Access to Apps on Your TV menu displays options for the My Account app and the Voicemail app with sliders to enable PIN.
