How to easily change your email address on Instagram on desktop or mobile

ShutterstockYou can easily update your email address on Instagram using the mobile app or website.

Keeping your social media accounts secured is a big deal. After all, should your accounts fall into the wrong hands, you never know what the person could do with your personal information, photos, and the like.

Part of ensuring your accounts stay safe is making sure your contact information is up-to-date, and thankfully, Instagram makes updating your email address a quick and easy process.

Whether you lost access to the email address you previously used to sign-up for Instagram or you simply got a new email address you’d like to use, you can update your email address on the photo sharing app via the app itself or on your computer.

Here’s how to do both.
