Apps wont download from playstore

Hello, 

I'm a new customer to Virgin Media who has recently signed up for broadband. 

I've noticed that I can't download any apps from the Play Store on my Samsung S10 with my Hub 3. 

Whilst waiting for the installation I was connected to my downstairs neighbours Virgin Media WIFI and I don't have any problem and I've switched between the two to see that it's just my WIFI.

I've looked on other forums and there doesn't seem to be an answer for this problem and I was hoping to get some clarity.

Thank you.

Check Websafe in your online account.

Re: Apps wont download from playstore

What am I checking, do I want it on or off? 

I currently have child safe off and virus safe on.

Re: Apps wont download from playstore

The Play Store is a shopping site and your Websafe may have been blocking it.

Do you get any warnings up when the apps refuse to download ?

Will the apps download with an ethernet connected device asking for the download.

It says the download is initialising but nothing downloads.

Re: Apps wont download from playstore

Disconnect your phone from the Wi-Fi.

Reboot your phone.

Try again.
