  1. Someone is using my phone number to change my password.


    Someone has sim swapped my phone number and as that is set as my own phone number, they are using this to change my password. I have tried updating the phone number but they cancel the security info request as soon as I've done it. Please help as I can't phone as I don't have access to a phone right now.

  2. Phone won't connect if I change wifi password

    I've finally figured out what happened, but the problem is only temporarily solved.

    I had changed my wifi password. And the phone won't connect with the new password. If I change the wifi password back to the old one it connects.

    So it's definitely a phone issue.
    I wish I could change my wifi password and have my phone working..

    Phone won't connect if I change wifi password

    This post states that you did'nt Apply the router config after changing the password.

    Possible the router memory is bad or not saving new setting
    Change the password reboot the router , check after in router if new password saved
    If not, reset router to factory default and re setup
    check if setting saved after reboot

    If do change router password the network will need to be deleted off phone and connect again (or it trying to connect to old saved wifi password ) or could manually change it on phone and save ( as others have stated )

    192.168.1.1
    home network
    Wlan
    Configure

    Change password and apply , Make sure "Allow new Devices - set to -new stations are allowed (automatically) "

    Using same router myself , Free from ISP not the greatest at all *Wink Someone is using my phone number to change my password. ;)
