Re: Temp password


I received my temp password 2 days ago. I can login to my modem adsl2+ with that password. To change the temporary password I followed the instructions sent by your service desk which is same as what you posted. As soon as I login I get following message and the system automatically logs me off. I tried in different browser. Cleared cache and cookies and even tried it from my friends house. No luck help pls. Following is the message after login. It stays for 5 seconds that way and I get logged off.


We apologise for the interruption. Please try again later.


after 5 seconds then it shows

Hey @Ppr, are you able to change your webmail password via My Account?


My Account uses a separate login to display your services. If you select your internet service and go to Settings > Manage My Optus Email Account, you should be able to change the password here instead.

I’m part of the Yes Crowd team, employed by Optus to help run our online community. This guide explains how everything works on here and you should also check out our Community Guidelines.

Hi @Toomey, there’s no settings available. I can share the screenshot if you want to take a look.

You're welcome to do that @Ppr.


What type of Internet product is the email address attached to i.e. NBN, ADSL or Cable? 


Depending on the product type, certain functionality may not be available in My Account.
