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
