How To Change Your Email On Slack
Last Updated: August 24, 2021
Do you have a new email address you want to use to handle your Slack messages and notifications? Or do you want to use one email for your different workspaces on the platform? In any case, we’re here to help you. Follow our quick guide below, and we’ll show you how to update your current email on Slack.
The email address you used to join a Slack workspace or create a new one is where you’ll receive notifications and important messages from Slack. You’ll also need it if you ever need to reset your password in the future.
As such, making sure that your email address is up to date is one of the things you should do on Slack. So if you have a new work email, you might want to change your outdated credentials on the app.
With that in mind, here’s our guide about changing the email address associated with your Slack account.
How to update your email on Slack
If you’re using a new email address to handle work-related stuff and messages, you have the option to update the one you’re currently using to sign in to Slack. In this way, you’ll receive important notifications from the app on your new email, and you’ll have no trouble resetting your app credentials whenever you need to do so in the future.
You can change your email address on Slack on their desktop or web app. There’s no option to do so on their mobile version. With that in mind, here’s a quick step-by-step tutorial on how to update your sign-in credentials on the app.
- On your computer, open the Slack desktop or web app and sign in to your account.
- Click your profile picture on the top right corner of the screen and select “View Profile” on the menu.
- Click More (three horizontal dots) and select Account settings.
- On the Email address section, click “expand.”
- Type your current password and new email address on the empty fields and click Update Email afterward.
- Check the inbox of your new email address for a message from Slack and select the link within it to confirm your decision.
Clicking the “Confirm email address” link on the email from Slack takes you to your Account page again. In the Email address section, you’ll see your new email connected to your account. From now on, you’ll use this credential when signing in to your Slack workspace.
While you can’t change your email through the Slack app on your phone, you can use your mobile web browser to do so. You can follow these steps above as well, but expect some slight differences in the interface.
If you can’t find the confirmation email or think that you didn’t receive it, check your spam folders or filters in your inbox. You might want to check your Account page and check if you made a typo when entering your new email.
To wrap things up
Like we mentioned earlier, we recommend that you always keep your email address in Slack updated at all times. The one you use to sign in to your workspaces receives all the messages, notifications, and password reset confirmations from the app.
Always remember that you can update your email address whenever you want. So if you ever change your mind or created a new email, you can always head to your Account settings and change your credentials.
