Walgreens is required by federal regulations to protect the privacy of your information. Your personal identifying information is used only to confirm your identity and to make sure that the person requesting access is really you. This process is similar to the authentication process used by banks, credit card companies and other organizations that require sensitive personal information to make sure that unauthorized individuals do not access your personal information.

Q: My account was already activated. Why is the system prompting me to activate my account again?

See Answer

A: One possible reason is that you have recently reset your password. If you reset your password and answer your security questions on file correctly, your authentication information and saved credit cards will remain activated. If you are unable to answer your security questions correctly, resetting your password will remove authentication information as well as the saved credit cards on your account. Previously saved credit cards will need to be re-entered.
