Slack: How to Change Your Email Address

Your email address serves as your point of contact for most digital communications, including Slack. But sometimes, you want to change your email ID for personal reasons. Given how your Slack account in a workspace is linked to your email, you might think changing your Slack email ID is a complex process. That’s not the case, though, as Slack makes it super convenient to change your account’s email address. Follow this guide to learn how.

Why You May Need to Change Your Email in Slack?

You may want to change your Slack email address for several reasons. You might have created a new email address for all work communication. Another reason can be that you are leaving a Slack workplace to switch to a new company, which means your old email address is no longer relevant, and you need to change it to reflect your new role and contact information.

It is also a good idea to change the email ID linked to your Slack account due to a security breach with your old email address. Note that switching your email address won’t log you out of Slack on all other devices.

How to Change and Verify Your Email in Slack

Slack makes it easy to change and verify your email; herein is how you can do it on your PC:

  1. Open the Slack app on your PC.
  2. Click your Slack workplace name at the top left.

Q. How to update your email on multiple workspaces?

A. Slack allows you to use a single email for multiple workspaces, but you will still have a separate account for every workspace. So, you will have to update the email for every workspace individually. 

Q. How do I switch accounts on Slack?

A. If you have logged into two or more workspaces, you can switch between workspaces with ease. On the desktop app, click the workspace icons or name initials in the left sidebar. This will reveal a list of all workspaces you are logged in. Click the workspace you want to switch to.
