Cannot register a virgin media account

Joining in



I just installed my router and I am wanting to register for a virgin media account, however every time I try to register I get stuck on the “couldnt register your password - please try again” loop on the password section endlessly.


To clarify, I have been following the password guidelines and I have been using different browsers and the app. And to preface, its been more than 3 days since my order for the service. No luck, a bit annoyed to say the least! It really shouldnt be this difficult, from my reading there is clearly some poor management on the IT side of things.

Could I please have this sorted? I am stumped in terms of finding a solution.

Hi Reece,

I have the exact same problem as the original poster. I got my broadband a few weeks ago but have just tried registering for My Virgin Media. My password is never accepted whatever I choose. It says "Sorry, there was a problem registering that password. Please choose a different one." I have tried all sorts, satisfying all the rules, and tried via website and through the app. Please can you assist?
