How to change your email on Facebook

Now you can finally get rid of that embarrassing email address.

Published onNovember 24, 2023

Nobody uses the same email forever, so at some point, you’re going to have to change your email address in your various online accounts. Changing your email on Facebook is a very easy process, which we’ll outline below. And if you are interested in leveraging your privacy on Facebook we have included the steps to keep your email private.


To change your email on website, go to your profile and select Settings & privacy > Settings and click on See more in Accounts Center. Select Personal details > Add new contact. On mobile phone, go to your profile, then tap on Menu > Settings & privacy and choose See more in Accounts Center. Select Contact Info > Change visibility on Facebook.


How to change your Facebook email on the computer

Changing your email address on Facebook takes just a couple of minutes and is a simple process. Follow these steps:

  • Go to your profile and select Settings & privacy.
  • Select Settings.
  • In Accounts Center, click  See more in Accounts Center and navigate to Personal details.
  • Click on Contact info and select Add new contact. From here, you can select Add email and enter your new email account.

To change your primary email address, you must first add at least one additional email address. Following this step, Facebook will send you an email requesting a confirmation code for your new email address. Once you enter the code, the new email address will become your primary one. The old address will then become a secondary backup, and you can choose to delete it if you wish.

How to change your Facebook email on mobile app

Changing your Facebook email on mobile app is as similar as the website. Follow these steps below:

  • Go to your profile Menu.
  • Tap Settings & privacy and select Settings from the dropdown menu.
  • In Setting & privacy, tap on See more in Accounts Center.
  • Tap on Personal details and select Contact Info. Finally, tap on Add new contact.


How to hide your Facebook email on mobile app

Alternatively, hiding your email is possible on mobile now. It is similar to how you change your email and here is how you do it.

  • Go to Setting & privacy and tap on Settings.
  • Tap on See more in Accounts Center.
  • Navigate to Personal details and tap on Contact Info.
  • In Contact information, select your email address that you wish to hide and tap on your existing Facebook profile. Then, select on Change visibility on Facebook.


No, Facebook currently doesn’t allow you to use the same email address for a second account. You would need a different email address for the second account.
