Changing or recovering your account email address

When you created your Squarespace account, you chose a login email address and password. This guide explains how to change your email address while logged in or recover it if you’re locked out of your account.

Note: Keeping a valid email address on file ensures you receive important notifications about your account and replies from Customer Support. We recommend using an email address you regularly access.

  • To transfer ownership of a site, follow the steps in Changing site ownership.
  • To use an email address that’s already associated with another account, invite that address as a contributor. If you try to change your email address to one that's already in use, you'll see an error message.
  • To log in through Apple, Facebook, or Google instead of using an email address and password, visit Changing how you log into Squarespace.
  • If you have a custom email address for your domain (such as G Suite), don’t use your custom email as your account email address. If you forget the password for both accounts, you could be locked out of Squarespace. 
  • Updating your account email address doesn't change where you receive Form Block submissions. To change that email address, visit Managing form and newsletter storage.
  • A valid account email address is required per our Terms of Service.
