Re: App won't let me use any password I chose when setting up account

Good Morning @RandomConflict, thanks for your post on our Community Forums, and a very warm welcome to you!

Sorry to hear that you're one of several posters citing this issue currently.

As I see the remedy for this issue has been shared by the original poster of the thread, can you please advise me if you've also been able to try alternative browsers and clear history/cache on your device?

Kindest regards,

David_Bn

Re: App won't let me use any password I chose when setting up account

Hi David,

Thank you for your reply. I have tried all of these suggestions (clearing cache, 3 different browsers, different devices) all with no luck. The website keeps stating that the password cannot be used. I have also tried multiple passwords, basic and more complex.

Re: App won't let me use any password I chose when setting up account

I have purchased a Virgin Media broadband package and I'm having exactly the same issue. I've tried clearing history and cache, different browsers, different computers and nothing is working. Please can this issue be fixed asap? It's not a good start to a customer relationship with Virgin and I'm not impressed. Something as simple as creating an account and logging in should be easy for such a huge company as Virgin.

Re: App won't let me use any password I chose when setting up account

Hi @s-lewis12,

Thank you for your post and welcome to our community forums. We're here to help.

I am so sorry to hear that you're facing some issues setting up a My Virgin Media online account. Can you try 3 or 4 different password variations ensuring that they each meet the below criteria.

•  Between 8-10 characters.
•  Must start with a letter.
•  Contain at least one number.
•  No special characters.

Please also try via the app as well as via a browser if you haven't done so already.

If the issue persists after trying the above, please let us know.

Thanks,
 



Zach - Forum Team

Re: App won't let me use any password I chose when setting up account

I have exactly the same issue, new devices, clearing cookies etc won't work for me. I can't register as it see's a old account and won't let me.

Re: App won't let me use any password I chose when setting up account

Same as everyone else (there are several threads too).

I have tried numerous devices, cleared cache, different browsers.

Yes, before I am asked. All passwords met the criteria.

As a new customer, this is a pretty poor introduction to Virgin. I have Full Volt package, installed by engineer (who was really good) yet I can't check WiFi channels/darkspots or access media via app because I can't create a bloody password. Seriously, this is not good enough.

Hopefully someone will send me the:

- obligatory welcome to virgin message;

- we are aware and looking into message.

whilst also sending me a DM to sort it.
