Change email address mobile phone
« on: May 14, 2021, 05:00:51 PM »
I sent a link from my Avast account to my mobile phone, the email I used has become corrupted. (now deleted)

I would like to change my email on mobile phone but cannot see how.

I'm not entirely sure what you are trying to do here.  You also don't say what product/s are involved ?

Presumably the email address used in the Avast Account is also the same ?
If so you can add a new email address to the account and once it has been validated you can set as Primary email address.

Account Settings > Email Management > Add Another Email - Validate it - Set as default.  (see attached image, click to expand)

Thanks for your reply Much appreciated.

My Avast account email is different to the email I use on my phone.

I am using avast premium security for 10 devices.

From my Avast account, I clicked on a link to send it to my email address on my phone. which now has been deleted.

I guess the only way to change my email on my phone would be to make a new email on my phone. Resend from the link in my avast account.

If you read the text in my image, that doesn't appear to be the case, only that you need to add that email address to your account (and not change it to the primary email address).  At least that is my interpretation of that text.

I use Avast Free and the free version of Avast Mobile Security, so I can't test that assumption.
