Make sure you create a unique password to help keep someone from breaking in to your account. Here are a few tips for creating your password, and keeping it safe:

  • Never tell anyone your password.
  • Never write down your password. Even though your password will look random to others, think of a way to remember it so that you don't have to write it down.
  • Change your password periodically.
  • Don't choose a dictionary word as your password. Be creative.
  • Mix capital and lowercase letters. Use numbers. A variety of characters makes it harder to guess a password.
  • For help choosing a strong and secure password, see How to choose a strong and secure password

Remember, when you change your password, you may need to update your password in a few other places:

  • If you use email software like Outlook Express to access your Virgin Media Mail then you'll need to update your new password when you next open the software.
  • If you use Backup & Storage you'll also be prompted to update your password.
  • If you have dial up or use webspace, your password will also be updated for these services.
