Can't access my details due to secondary account

Hi,

I moved out of my parents house recently and bought my own Virgin Media broadband package.

This is fine, however when I log into anything, I can't manage or view my details anywhere. It just shows my my parents package and it says I have a secondary account.

How can I go about separating my email/account from my parents so I can work with my own account?

I did call regarding this issue over a week ago and was promised a response within 5 working days, but I never got one...

Thanks

Hi @myl_35

Welcome to the community!

Sorry to hear this. If you have not moved/transferred the service over from your parents home and have started as a new customer, you should be able to create your own online account with your new account number information rather than using the existing account that is registered at your parents home. 

Can you try clearing your cache and cookies and then go to 'register an account', fill out the information and let me know if that has worked for you.

Hi @Carley_S

I have just tried this and it seems to have worked so far! I had to use a different email, but that's okay!

Thank you very much for your help 🙂

Thanks

Myles

This is good to hear @myl_35
