Forgotten broadband username or password


If you've forgotten your username or password for My Account don't worry. This guide offers help with your username format, and shows how to reset your password.

Forgotten username

The tips below might help:

  • If you registered as an EE customer, your username is similar to yourname or johnsmith123456
  • It's the My Account username, which you'll find on the KEEP MEE card we sent with your router
  • If you've logged in before and entered a personal or preferred email address, you can also use this

If you've been with us a little longer you may have an Orange, Wanadoo or Freeserve username. This looks something like this:

  • yourname.orangehome.co.uk
  • yourname.freeserve.co.uk

Add @fs at the end of the username to connect to the Internet. Or remove for email and logging in to My Account via My EE.

Forgotten password

If you've forgotten your password:

  1. Go to the FORGOTTON PASSWORD page
  2. Enter your Home Broadband username
  3. Enter the letters displayed in the ...type here field - you can also click AUDIO to hear the letters
  4. Click NEXT

Preferred email set up

If you've set up a preferred email address for My Account, we'll send you an email. This contains a link which lets you reset your password.

If the mail doesn't arrive, check your junk mail folder.

Preferred email not set up

If you haven't set up a preferred email address

  1. Enter the answer to the security question and click NEXT - you chose this when you first logged into My Account via My EE (case sensitive)
  2. Enter a new password, confirm your password and click FINISH
  3. That's it - your password will be changed. You can log in to My Account via My EE.

If you use our email service, the password for this will also change. Simply update your email program settings or log in to webmail with the new password.

Still having problems?

Our tips below often help:

  • If you get the message Sorry, but we didn't recognise this login..., then you're entering your username incorrectly
  • If you're taken back to the screen to enter your username, you've entered the answer to your security question incorrectly
  • The FORGOTTEN PASSWORD pages won't update your internet connection password (used by your router). So, your password for logging in to My Account and checking email could be different to the internet connection password used by your router.

If you're still having problems, don't worry. Give us a call - we'll be happy to help.
