How to change your e-mail address on Instagram

In our “Instagram Guides,” we'll look at Instagram, explain its new and old features, and show you how to get the most out of the platform for your marketing strategy. Today: How you can change your e-mail address on Instagram, and under which circumstances it could be wise to do so.

There are two ways to create an account on Instagram. You can either sign up with your e-mail address or phone number, or register through Facebook.

If you choose to register with your Facebook account, Instagram uses the e-mail address that you once used for signing up on Facebook.

Why do you need an e-mail address to register on Instagram?

The e-mail address you choose for registering on Instagram is essential for your account’s security.

Your e-mail address is the only way to re-enter your account if you have logged out and forgot your password. If you forget your password, you’ll need access to your e-mail to reset your password and log back in to your Instagram account.

Reasons why you might need to change your e-mail address on Instagram

There are different reasons why you might need to change your e-mail address on Instagram.

If you are experiencing problems with your account, it could make sense to change your e-mail address. Maybe you got hacked and you want to avoid losing your precious account to an imposter.

A lot of Instagram users also register with a fake e-mail address because they have security concerns. Or maybe you registered a long time ago with an old e-mail address that you no longer use or have forgotten the password to.

It’s also possible that you registered your business Instagram account with the e-mail address of a colleague. When someone leaves your firm or another colleague takes over the support for your Instagram account, you can easily change the e-mail address for your account.

How do you change your e-mail address on Instagram?

  1. Open Instagram and go to your profile via the profile picture in the bottom right corner.
  2. Tap on “Edit profile” under your bio.
  3. Tap on “Personal information settings.”
  4. Tap on your current e-mail address and change it to the new one.
  5. Make sure you type your e-mail address correctly.
  6. Tap “Done.”
  7. You will receive a confirmation e-mail at your new e-mail address.
  8. Open the e-mail and confirm your new address.
