  3. Enter your new email and tap on "Send confirmation mail," we'll send a confirmation email to your current Ko-fi login address. Keep an eye out for an email titled "You just requested to change your email" from ko-fi@ko-fi.com. It'll also mention the new email address you're switching to. Best to double check this email is correct.

  4. When you receive the email, click on “Confirm this change” to finalize the process. If the email is wrong, change it back through Account Settings.

  5. When you have finalized the email change, return to your Account Settings, give the page a quick refresh, and check your account email has been updated.

That's it! 🎉 Your Ko-fi account email address is now up-to-date.


Typo in my email when signing up

If there's a typo in your email when you sign up, it means your account won't be verified and will eventually be removed. You can simply sign up again and claim the same username with the correct email this time around.

Need a hand? Feel free to reach out to us with the username you want to claim, the email address with the typo, and the correct email you'd like to use. We'll help you get things sorted in no time!


Changing your account email when you signed up using X (Twitter), Google, Facebook or Twitch


Want to still log in using your social account, but receive emails to a different email address?

You can add your email address in your Account Settings following the steps in the previous section. You will continue to log in using your social media account and all emails and notifications will be sent to the newly added email address.


Switching from social media login to email login

If you’d like to log in using your email address, rather than your social media account, you will need to set up a password and login email address for your Ko-fi account. You can set a password and email address from your Account Settings.

If you're unable to access the email you used to create your Ko-fi account, don't worry, we're here to assist you! Simply reach out to us and let us know the email address you'd like to change your Ko-fi account to. Just make sure it's an email without an existing Ko-fi page associated with it.
