I am new Virgin Media customer and I am trying to register on MyVirginMedia.
I am not able to do this as whatever I try, I am getting the error "You can't use that password. Please choose another" when entering a password for my account.
I have tried both through a few browsers: Firefox, Chrome, Edge and Epic and also through the MyVirginMedia app on Android and get the same error whatever.
It says that "All password requirements met " but won't allow me to create a password whatever I try. I can see from other Forum posts that this seems to be a common issue - please can someone help me solve this so can access my account?
I have tried multiple diffrent passwords and still same issue
Thanks for posting and sorry to hear you're having some issues creating an online account.
Can you confirm if you've usedNo special characters, only letters and numbers, MUST begin with a letter, try keeping it between 8-10 characters?
The current password criteria are:
8 to 64 characters
can only contain alphanumerical characters (a-z, A-Z, 0-9) and the following additional characters !@#&*_
must contains at least one letter and numerical character.
There have been reports of passwords being accepted even though the on screen message says otherwise.

yes not used any special charecters started with a capital letter also tried without im guessing my password could be any of the 50 + i tried to use but im guessing it didnt accept any as cannot reset pasword via asking for an email to do so not registered seems there password checks are impossible to pass
Have you tried to access using the password you're trying to change it to iand? As Graham_A has mentioned, there have been reports of customers changing the password and getting the error when it has actually updated.
Can you see if it has actually updated?
