Hi, I have a BT landline. I am the legal owner of the account and I pay the bill. My email address ends in btinternet.com. I was recently blocked from my email account because of "suspicious activity". I suspect this was simply my VPN. I was able to log in using my email address and password but was then asked for the answer to my secret question. I had no recollection of setting up this question and could not recall the answer. This caused considerable difficulties. I have to change my secret question so that I know the answer next time this happens, but there seems to be no way to do this. I don't need to change the password, just the secret question. Can someone explain how this is done please. Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your reply. The word "Profile" does not appear on MyBT. I have included a screenshot of MyBT after I have logged in. There is no link to "Profile". Does anyone know how to change the secret question, not the password? There seems to be no way to do this. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.
If I click on manage my details circled in red below I receive an error message. This is the second image below. The error is permanent. How can I change my secret question in these circumstances? Thanks for any help.
If you log on to MyBT then hover your mouse over MyBT in the purple menu bar it will show a drop down list. Under My Account you will see Your Profile. Click on that.
This takes me to the same error message. See image below. The error is permanent. This does not change. Does anyone know how I can change my secret question under these circumstances? Thanks for any help.
Welcome and thanks for your post!
Sorry for the problems you're having changing the answer to your security question. I used my personal BTID to follow the instructions the guys on here gave you and it is giving me the option to make the changes that you're trying to make. Not sure why you are seeing that error so send your details over and we'll check this out.
I have sent you a private message with instructions on how you can send us over your details and we'll look into this for you. See: Private messages
This problem is now solved. BT rang me back from their Tech Support in India. The technician changed my password from her end. If I now log in to https://bt.com/mybt and do "MyBT>Your profile" I no longer receive the error message. I was able to edit my secret question and enter an answer that I will be able to use if the problem ("suspicious activity on your email account") recurs, which it probably will. Thanks for your suggestions. Problem solved.
I hope you have since changed your password from the one that BT changed it to.
