Unable to reset password

Joining in


I am unable to reset my password as the password strength is classed as “invalid”, even when using passwords generated by a password generator. I am therefore not able to reset my password and access my virgin media account.


1. Open the MyVirginMedia app
2. Select “Broadband tv and phone”
3. Select “Forgotten … password
4. Follow the link provided in my email to the reset password page on
5. Try to choose a new password


No passwords are valid. Password strength is ”invalid” even when meeting the password criteria.


A password can be set and password for my account changed.

Hi Petetervit, 

Thank you for reaching out to us here on the Community. 

I am very sorry to hear you are having issues resetting your password. 

Have you been able to try this on another browser or device to see if you still have the same issue? 

If not, can you please try and then let us know how you get on?

Thanks for taking the time to contact us via the Community. It's lovely having you on board with us in the Forums.

We're sorry to hear you're having an issue with trying to reset your password. 

This is something we can certainly check for you but in order to do that I will need to confirm some information with you to pass security. 

I have sent you a direct message to allow us to do this with you in a private space. Just click on the little envelope at the top right-hand side of the page to access your inbox.

I have exactly the same problem - can't set a password.  Yes, I have tried all the usual things (different browser, different complexity password, different email address, different device).  Tried around 50 times with different combinations.

Did anyone actually get a fix for this? My bill has just gone up this month and I can’t even access my account to find out why, infuriating!

Hello Commander_L.

Thank you very much for joining our Community.
Can I just apologise for you not being able to access your bills online.

Have you been able to sign into your online account previously?

If you know the email address you can use the Forgotten password option to gain access.

If you are still struggling, please let me know and I can take a further look into this.


I have precociously been able to view my bills online yes. Still can’t get access with my current password or change my password to a new one. I need to get this sorted asap
