my VM broadband has just been installed today. Everything is working on regarding connected devices.
I have the HUB4 and I have downloaded the VM connect app and used my email address assigned to my account to log on. Once in I click on broadband and it says getting data. After a short while it says we can’t find your hub despite being right next to it. I have reinstalled the app and it still does the same. I am using an iPhone iOS and read that iOS have a setting that can interfere but I can’t find what it is.

VM Connect App
For the VM Connect app to work the phone needs to be connected to a Router mode Hub via WiFi and VPNs must be disabled ( i.e. all forms of Apple’s Private Browsing tools / NordVPN and the like must be off )
If you have reinstalled the VM Connect app and it still does not find the Hub the VM back end systems are often the cause, just try again in a few days.
Don’t reboot the Hub it is not the reason for the lack of connection.
Until the VM Connect app works manage the Hub at http://192.168.0.1

Thanks. I do have a VPN ipvanish however it is disabled on my phone. My iPhone is also connected via wifi. I’ll try again in a few days.
in the meantime that link asks for a password. Which one do I use, my router one doesn’t work or my account?

You use the Hub password from the sticker on the Hub , it might be on the bottom side of the Hub (note it is different from the WiFi password )

Thanks, the link now works but ideally I want to use the App. With my previous supplier I was able to block and unblock devices from the internet which is ultimately what I want to do with ease.

I'd avoid device blocking like the plague.
This forum is littered with threads reporting the VM Connect app has failed and now I can't unblock a key device.

Just to confirm. The app started working on its own. Thanks
