meinhvv - Activation

If the system recognizes your account as “not activated”, please check whether you still have the activation e-mail which was sent to you after registering.

If you still have the e-mail, please click on the link shown there to complete the activation process.

If you no longer have the e-mail, just enter your e-mail address in the “password forgotten” function. The system will then offer to send the link again.

Many e-mail providers pre-sort incoming e-mails as a service for their clients, often without informing them about it. For this, they set up spam files or other files (e.g. “Unknown”) and divert e-mails into them.

Please therefore first check whether the activation e-mail has been allocated by your program or your provider to your spam file or waste bin. Please do this both locally on your end device and also on your e-mail provider’s website.

If this is the case, please click on the link shown there to activate the account.
Please mark us at the same time as a safe source so that e-mails sent by us are no longer automatically sorted out. By doing this, you will also be saving other clients the bother of searching. Many thanks!

It may just be that your inbox is too full. If this is the case, it may help to delete one or more emails.

If you cannot find the e-mail, you can also use the “password forgotten” to get a new activation link sent to you.

Creating or changing a password for meinhvv

In order to offer our clients as high a level of protection as possible for their transactions, e.g. when they buy tickets, we have followed normally applied security criteria in setting our password guidelines.

To make it a bit easier for you to create a password, here are a few tips:

  • You can choose the first letters of the words from a typical sentence: e.g. “In September 2011 we were in Paris!” then becomes “IS2011wwiP!” (But whatever you do, don’t use this example!)
  • You can replace some letters with special characters, e.g. s -> $, u -> & or i -> !
  • You can simply tack a special character onto the end of your password.
  • You can separate a word after a syllable and insert an additional special character there.

Please note: for security reasons, you should not use the same password more than once.

This is what the “password forgotten” function is for.
Just enter your e-mail address there and a new password will be sent to you.

Now open your personal e-mail inbox. You will find a new password there to log in with.
Please take over this password consisting of numerals, numbers and characters using the copy function to avoid making any typing mistakes and log in to the meinhvv website with it by entering as usual your e-mail address in combination with the new password.

You can then change the password in your meinhvv Profile to a password of your choice.  
Please make sure that the password complies with the stipulated security criteria: it must be at least eight characters long and contain at least one special character or a number as well as upper and lower case letters.

Our tips in this case:
Copy the password into the clipboard of your end device.
Please make sure when you do this that you do not inadvertently copy in a space in front of or after it, as this could prevent you logging on.
Then insert the password in the appropriate place. You should then be able to log in without any problem.

By the way, it is far easier to check whether your logon data work properly by using a physical keyboard rather than on a virtual keyboard on a mobile end device.

After you have logged on to the meinhvv start page, you can change the password to a password of your choice in your meinhvv Profile.

Please make sure that the password must be at least eight characters long and contain at least one special character or a number as well as upper and lower case letters.

Please note: for security reasons, you should not use the same password more than once.

If you do not do this, your account will be deleted. Of course, you can re-register at any time. 

Please note that this does not affect data which you have deposited with your client contract partner.

Please check the email address given in the letter sent to you. Are you sure this is the account you have been using? Do you perhaps have other email addresses to or from which emails can be forwarded?
