Updating your account email address

In this guide, you'll learn how to change the email address associated with your Squarespace account.

Your email address is also your login username. After changing it, use the updated email address to log into any Squarespace site connected to your account.

Keeping a valid email address on file with us ensures that you receive all notifications for your site and about your account, including replies to any Customer Care tickets. We recommend using an email address you can regularly access.

Note: To log in through Facebook, Google, or Twitter instead of using an email address and password, visit Changing how you log into Squarespace.

Before you begin

  • If you usually log in through a social account, you won’t see the option to update your Squarespace account email address. Instead, update the email address through your social account. You can also switch to email and password login.
  • If you forgot the email address associated with your account, you can recover it from the login screen. 
  • To transfer ownership of one site, follow the steps in Changing site ownership instead.
  • To use an email address already used to log into a different account, invite that address as a contributor instead. If you try to change your email address to one that's already in use, you'll see an error message.
  • If you have a G Suite account through Squarespace, we don't recommend using your G Suite email address 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
