If you have created a new email account or have a different email that you prefer to use, you may want to change your email address in your Instagram account. We will show you how to do this on desktop and mobile.
Edit your Instagram account email on mobile devices
On your mobile (iPhone, iPad or Android), use the Instagram app to update the email address in your account.
Start by launching the Instagram app on your phone. In the bottom bar of the app, tap your profile icon.
On your profile page, tap “Edit Profile”.
On the “Edit Profile” screen, at the bottom, tap “Personal Information Settings”.
Tap the “Email address” field.
You will see a “Change Email” screen. Here, type in the new email address you want to use with your Instagram account. Then, in the top right corner, tap the check mark icon.
You will see a “Check your email” message. Tap “OK”.
Instagram sent an email to your new email address for verification. Then open your email inbox, log into the Instagram email and tap the “Confirm Email Address” link in the email.
And this is all. Your new email address is now the primary email address of your Instagram account.
Change your Instagram email address on the desktop
If you are using a desktop computer such as Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook, use the Instagram website to change your email address.
To do this, first open a web browser on your computer and launch the Instagram site. Log into your account on the site.
After logging in, in the upper right corner of the site, click on your profile icon.
From the menu that opens, select “Profile”.
On the profile page, next to your username, click “Edit Profile”.
Scroll down the “Edit Profile” page to view the “Email” field. Click this field and enter the new email address to use in your account. Then click “Submit”.
You will need to verify your new email address by clicking on a link in the email you receive from Instagram. To do this, open your email inbox, access the email from Instagram and click on the “Confirm Email Address” link in that email.
And your Instagram email address has now changed. You will now use this new email address to log into the platform on all your devices.
