Change Email

If you need to, you can change the email address linked to your account at any time. You need a valid email and your password to be able to change it.

Knowing your email address and having your account linked to a valid one is important! You need it to:

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

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, but if you have any trouble verifying it, please see this guide: Verify your Email
