problem registering password for my virgin media

Hi, I am a new customer, I have not been able to register for my virgin media account due to registration process not accepting any passwords I want to use, it just states "Sorry, there was a problem registering that password. Please choose a different one"

I have used all sorts of different combinations of passwords, and they all have met the relevant password conditions, I have tried multiple different suggested password combinations from multiple different browsers and also tried clearing cache and cookies as well as incognito browsing, this is all a bit frustrating considering virgin media is a telecommunications company.

From reading the forum, it seems like this is a known issue and lots of people have experienced it but there don't seem to be any solutions, does anyone have any suggestions ?

Thanks for speaking with us today @Gordonp1 on the forums. 👋🏼

Unfortunately there were some issues when trying to make a My Virgin Media so we have raised this with our IT team.
We have advised that the IT team will take 5 working days to resolve this, once done the MyVM account will be made.
Other than that - if there's any other issues, feel free to reach out to us and we'll assist.

Kind regards,
Ilyas.

Hi, is there any chance I could ask for you to take another look at this issue please ?

I did receive 1 phone call from virgin media second line IT team that lasted 40 minutes without a resolution of any kind only a promise of a call back the next day which I did not get, the problem is now at least a month old and I am honestly no closer to even understanding the issue around simply creating a password for an account, this is extremely frustrating to be honest as I am regularly receiving marketing emails from virgin media on using the my virgin media app to monitor my bills and place my router in the correct along with speed tests all of which I am unable to do again for such a simple reason

Hi @Gordonp1,

I'm so sorry there's been no progress. I appreciate this is frustrating and I would love to take another look into the issue for you. 

Please keep an eye out for my PM 📩 and we can take it from there. 

Thanks and speak to you soon!
