Changing your email

A valid email address linked to your account is very important. You need it to:

  • Reset your password
  • Verify your account
  • Get email notifications from Wattpad

You can change the email address linked to your account at any time as long as it is a valid email and you know your current password. 

Once you change it, you’ll need to verify the email address. A verification email will be sent to your new email once the change is made. If you have any trouble, please see this guide: Verifying your Email

If you are having problems changing your email, it might be because of one of the following reasons:
  • The email address you're trying to use is already linked to another account
  • Forgot password
  • No access to the linked email or Wattpad account
  • Your Gmail address is registering without periods; please see this article for more information. 
See a category below for more details.

Email already in use?

Getting a prompt saying that your email is already in use? This is because the email is already linked to another Wattpad account.
 
Emails can only be linked to one active Wattpad account, so you'll need to use another email address. Accounts must be linked to an email.

Forgot your password?

If you can't change your email because you don't remember your password, then reset it. Have a look at our guide if you need help: Resetting Your Password

No access to the linked email?

If you don't know your password and you can't reset it because you don't have access to your email, you won't be able to change the email on your account. Please read our guide for more details: Forgot email

If this still doesn't help you with this issue, please submit a ticket through support by clicking here and we will be happy to assist you.

Make sure to write to us from the email that your account is linked to.
