Cannot log into my email account on my phone or ipad

I changed my password on my email account today for security reasons. Now I cannot log into my account on my iPhone or iPad and my longstanding email address is useless. Spent an hour on a web chat which was useless as the person insisted on changing my password from a strong one to a weak one telling me someone would call me tonight. Guess what - no call back and no email without logging in via a web browser. My husband is the account holder but my account doesn’t show as a sub or affiliate account. Does anyone know what’s going on? How do I get my email working on my phone and iPad again?

Try using your old password.

Yes obvious answer. That was what started the problem. I changed it as I was informed that my data was subject to a security breach so I changed all passwords today for my security and now this. I’ve changed my passwords many times before with no problems. It’s something BT have done looking at other posts. Thanks for your helpful answer though!!!

How were you informed that your data was 'subject to a security breach', was it by email and did you click on any links in the email?

Can you access webmail here https://signin1.bt.com/login/emailloginform

Re: Cannot log into my email account on my phone or ipad

I received a web monitoring email alert direct from Experian which is a service I pay for because I was a previous victim of a clever identity fraud after a burgarly of my home when my handbag and its contents were taken. Fortunately I have all my accounts with clever passwords but it didn’t stop them from trying - unsuccessfully. I am now advised that my email address and it’s password are being published and sold on illegal websites. I also had not changed my password after the yahoo hack a couple of years ago.No I really am not so stupid or naive to click links and I think you are being rather intrusive when all I asked for was if anyone else had similar issues. I changed all my passwords within an hour of my web monitoring alert and yes I can still access my account in a browser. That was NOT my question. Anything else you want to know or ask me unhelpful questions on or can you maybe help me with my issue which is why I’m on here? Rather than answer intrusive and quite patronising questions about how you appear to think I have been hacked when the issue is a change made to email account tcs and cs by BT.
If anyone else has any useful constructive advice it would be gratefully received. Thanks
