Re: Password

Strange, i just logged into https://my.virginmedia.com selected profile and changed my password - assume that you’re following the password guidelines.. 8-10 characters, only letters and numbers and must start with a letter?

Re: Password

It should be possible to change the password online .... just be warned that the Virgin security is appalling. It has been mentioned multiple times on this forum but to recap:

  • Virgin enforce weak passwords (i.e. limit of 10 characters)
  • Virgin breach industry and government standards with your passwords.

Re: Password

Hi broksonic,

 

Thank you for your post. 

 

I'm very sorry for the issue you're having in trying to change your password. 

 

Are you getting a specific error message when trying this?
