How Do I Recover My Virgin Media Account?

Due to a technical glitch or human error, Virgin Media accounts may become suspended. But customers can recover their account in just a few minutes — once they correctly enter their email address and password on the website's home page. Customers will have to prove the legitimacy of their accounts. After this, they can log into their Virgin Media accounts and use them however they want.

Have you ever been in a situation where you've lost access to your Virgin Media account? Reset your username and password to recover your account if you forgot them. This option only applies to customers who have registered an account with Virgin Media in the past. In either case, here are steps to recover your account.

Once you confirm Virgin Media has locked your account, select Account Recovery. You will get a prompt to choose from two options depending on the circumstances of your account lock: I Have Lost My Password, or I Have Lost My Username.

3. Enter Your Email Address

The next step is to enter your email address. After you click Next Step, Virgin Media will send email to this address. If you don't receive the email, check your spam folder.

6. Answer Your Security Question
