Throughout your life, you’re likely to change email accounts a few times. It’s possible that your email provider could close their service, or that you just decide to switch to another platform, or even that you get a new work email. Unfortunately, many accounts on websites and other Internet-connected services use your email address as your username or account identifier. This can make changing the email address associated with the account a bit difficult.
Thankfully, the process for updating the email address for your Amazon account is relatively simple. To do so, you need to click on “Accounts & Lists” at the top-right corner, then click on “Login & Security.”
Before you go any further, you’ll be required to re-authenticate for security reasons. Once you’ve done so, you can choose to edit your name, email address, phone number, password, or two-factor authentication settings. To edit the email address associated with your account, click the “Edit” button next to your email address.
Next, you’ll be asked to enter the new email address you want to use, to which an OTP, or One Time Password, will be sent. Enter your email address, click Continue, and then check your email for the OTP and enter that.
Finally, to confirm that you want to switch from your old email address to your new one, enter your password and click “Save changes.”
Note: Changing your email address will cause you to need to re-authenticate on other devices.
