Password stupidity

My husband has asked for a new password. He has received one from Virgin which has 8 characters. Then gets asked to put in characters 1  9  and 11?  How does he get round that stupidity?

Re: Password stupidity

Who or what is asking him for these characters? I presume a webpage somewhere, but you've not said...

Re: Password stupidity

I must be missing something here.

Why would Virgin Media issue you a password to access your bank account?

Having a password issue with one of your VM online accounts (email, my-account section etc) I can understand.

Re: Password stupidity

@ellarose1234 So does this query relate to a Virgin Money bank account?  If so this is not the correct forum as this is for Virgin Media related issues.

I cannot think of any situation where Virgin Media would set a password for use with a bank account.

Re: Password stupidity

Hi ellarose1234,

 

Thanks for posting and sorry for any confusion.

 

japitts and Graham_A are right in what they say, we wouldn't issue you a password for a bank account.

 

If this is relating to Virgin Money it's not something we're able to help with here.

 

Can you please confirm what you mean?
