How Do I Change My Email Attached to My Account?

How do I Change my Email Attached to my Account?

Safeguarding your financial profile is very important to everyone. You want to know what is going on with your credit score and your credit reports, but paying for a credit report can become expensive if you have already exhausted the free yearly report provided by the three major credit bureaus. That is where CreditKarma can help. CreditKarma provides a free source of real-time credit reporting that will help you stay on top of your financial obligations. Your CreditKarma account is linked to the email account you entered when you signed up for the service; however, you may find that you need to change your email information in your account. Compromised email accounts could leave your CreditKarma account vulnerable, which could leave your identify and bank accounts vulnerable. Additionally, as circumstances change, email addresses may also change.

How do you change your email address?

You can contact customer service here, or you can follow these easy steps to updating your CreditKarma profile:

  1. Log into your CreditKarma account.
  2. Select "Security Settings."
  3. Scroll to "Change Email" and select "Update."
  4. Confirm the phone number you have on your account because CreditKarma will send a text to verify that you are actually the one requesting the email update by selecting "Send Code."
  5. Enter the seven-digit code (this code will only be active for five minutes from the time it is sent to your mobile device).
  6. Go back into "Security Settings" and scroll back to "Change Email."
  7. Enter your new email address and confirm the new email. Then enter your current password in the boxes and select "Update."
  8. Log into your new email address and open the email from CreditKarma. Open this email and click on the link provided to verify your new email address.
  9. CreditKarma will then pin a message to your account page stating your email address has been successfully updated and reminding you to use the new email the next time you log into your account.

By regularly updating your email address in CreditKarma you are adding another layer of protection to your financial profile. Just as passwords should be regularly updated, email address should also be updated to reduce the chances of identity theft. You can follow these steps to update your CreditKarma password, or you can access customer support here.
