How to Change Your Email Address On Facebook

Don't miss notifications or contacts when your email changes

So, you want to change your Facebook email address. Maybe your Facebook account has been breached or hijacked. Maybe you changed to a new email provider and you need to update your information. Whatever the reason, you can change the email address associated with your Facebook account in a few steps. Here's how.

If your account has hacked, you should also change your Facebook password.

These instructions apply to any internet-connected computer, smartphone, or tablet.

How to Change Your Facebook Email on Any Computer

You can change your email address from any computer, whether it’s a Mac, Windows, or Linux machine, using your favorite web browser.

To change the email address you use with Facebook and to set it as the primary address from a computer:

  1. In the top right corner of the Facebook page, select the down arrow, then Settings & Privacy, then Settings.

    You can access Facebook's settings from the drop down menu on the upper right
  2. From the General tab, select Contact.

  3. Select Add Another Email Or Mobile Number.

    You can add a new email or mobile number to your Facebook account from the Contact tab
  4. Type the new address and click Add.

  5. Facebook might ask you to re-enter your password. Do that, then click Submit.

You can remove the old email address if you want by going back to the Contact tab and selecting Remove.

Once you're done adding a new email address, Facebook will send you a confirmation message. Click the link in your email to confirm you want to add that address to your account.

How to Change Your Facebook Email on Mobile

If you use the Android or iOS Facebook app, you can make an email address change there or in a mobile browser. The process differs slightly from doing it on a computer.

Once you enter the new email, you may need to access Facebook from a computer to make it your new primary email address.

  1. Open the Facebook app on your Android or iOS device.

  2. Tap the three-line menu icon.

  3. Tap Settings & Privacy. (If you're on the mobile site, skip to the next step.)
