Password reset not working

I am trying to change my password for my virgin mobile account and I keep getting an ‘oops something went wrong message’ I have tried on both my phone and laptop with the correct email and mobile number and it is persistent. This has been ongoing for months now.

Re: Password reset not working

I am getting the same thing - several attempts to reset password appear to be successful but logging in gives -

Sorry, we didn’t recognise those details

Please note that passwords are case-sensitive, so check that your caps lock is set correctly and try again.

I have come to this community site because no other Virgin service is responding at present.

Thanks for confirming Jeff_Reeves

Can I ask if you've tried an alternative browser?  Or even deleting your browsing history and cache before taking the steps you've referred to?

Regards

Re: Password reset not working

Thanks Lee,

I just have Safari on my Apple iMac. I have checked delete browsing history but I see that it deletes all my keychains - I do not wish to do that.

I have just tried logging in on my mobile with a new password and that works!

What do I do next?

Jeff

Re: Password reset not working

Hi Jeff_Reeves, 

So sorry for the random questioning, are you able to access google chrome or firefox, and see if you can change your password via that browser if you are still having the same issue can you share a screenshot of the error message you are getting, please?

Re: Password reset not working

Hi Zoie,

I don't have Crome or Firefox but Safari on my iMac works for many other websites I use that require login/password mostly held in my keychains so I don't have to keep typing the details. This what I would expect Virgin Mobile to do. Why is it different from all the others?

The error message from Virgin Mobile is Sorry, we didn’t recognise those details.
