How To Change Your Twitch Email Address
Last Updated: January 2, 2020
If you want to be updated on the latest videos on Twitch, you need to connect it with your other online accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Steam, and YouTube. Probably, you are active on these accounts. You can even direct it on your email. Connecting Twitch on your email address can let you receive notifications based on your discretion. And if you sign up to Twitch, you need to put your email address.
But what if you already get rid of this email address and you want to change your email on your twitch account? Well, it’s not a big problem. The steps are just easy to follow. Here are the ways on how you can change your Twitch email address:
- Log in to your Twitch account.
- Look for “Security and Privacy,” then select.
- Under the Email, click the pencil icon you can find at the right side.
- You can see your current email address. Just edit it and place your desired email address.
- Just click “save.”
And yes, it’s as simple as that. The email address connected on your Twitch account is very important. Why? It is where Twitch sends important info such as newsletters and notifications. If in case you forgot your Twitch username or password, you will be able to retrieve your account using your email. That is the reason why you should check that your email address on your Twitch account is updated.
The good thing about Twitch is that it allows you to use your email address on multiple Twitch accounts. That means that even if you already used your email address, you can still make another Twitch account using the same email address. Unlike any other social media apps and live streaming platforms, this is not allowed.
Other Means of Receiving Notifications From Twitch
There are other ways on how you can receive notifications from Twitch aside from email. Twitch allows you to customize your notifications. You can receive such by channel, on your browser, mobile phone, and of course, on Twitch.
Anyway, Twitch also allows you to be connected on other networks such as Blizzard, Steam, and League of Legends. If you connect your Blizzard account, Twitch can access your Battle Tag as well as your game and account information. If you connect your Steam account, your Steam ID will become visible on your Twitch account. If you connect your League of Legends account, your profile, statistics, and gameplay history might be visible on Switch.
And since it was mentioned above that you can also connect your YouTube account, this will allow Twitch to upload info on YouTube and be visible to other users. The same is true with Facebook and Twitter. Anyway, these settings can be reversed by disconnecting the following accounts from your Twitch. You can do this anytime.
Most of the times, we use our username to log in to Twitch. Although our email address is rarely dealt with, it is important to update it every time. Every time there are latest updates, we are notified through our mail so we should check it from time to time.
