ERROR: Please enter valid captcha

Hello,

I am unable to create a new account even though I am putting in the correct info such as my account number and area code as the form always says 'Please enter valid captcha' even though I have ticked it. I have tried in Google Chrome and MS Edge.

I will appreciate any advice to address issue.

Sincerely,

Roberto

Re: ERROR: Please enter valid captcha

Hi rseminariom,

Thank you for your post and welcome to the community. 

I'm very sorry to hear about the issues you have had in trying to register an online account. 

Can you confirm if you have cleared the cookies and cache on either browser and tried this again?

After you get the error message do you get a new set of images for captcha?

^Martin

Re: ERROR: Please enter valid captcha

Hello Hayley_S,

I used Edge / Chrome / Opera / Firefox the same thing all the time. PC and phone (Android), the same everywhere.

My email has been used for 9 years before, I came back to Virgin after 3 years, I have a different account number (the previous one has expired), could this have something to do?

Regards

Hi tomtom2323,

Thanks for your post and welcome back to the community.

Can I out of curiosity whether the ReCaptcha error appears when you are using mobile data?

Thanks,

Kain

Re: ERROR: Please enter valid captcha

My dad is having the same error. We've tried lots of different browsers, different computers, tablets and phones. Even tried the app. Always get the Catcha error, although obviously the error isn't the Captcha because that completes OK. 

A google search suggests that this error has been happening for many months.

Hi @PaulOckenden,

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

I'm sorry to hear you're having a bit of trouble with the CAPTCHA feature when accessing your online account. You should be able to access it via the My Virgin Media app and not have to re-do it regularly. How often do you have to re-do it via the app?
 

Thanks,

Re: ERROR: Please enter valid captcha

Thanks @Rach_R. 

That's not a solution, unfortunately. This thread is about signing up in the first place, and the App uses exactly the same page as the website for this, and so you get exactly the same error.
