Why Am I Unable to Change Email Address Twitch?
There can be many reasons why you are unable to change the email address on your Twitch account.
1. You have another account with that Email ID:
Check the new email ID you entered. You may have another account with that email address. If the email address which you want to add to your Twitch is already associated with another Twitch account, then, sorry boss, you won’t be able to add it here as a new (updated) email address.
Because only one account can be linked to one email address.
2. Make sure you enter the correct password:
When you try to update your email address, for verification purposes, Twitch asked you to enter your Twitch account password. Make sure you enter the correct password. If you enter the wrong password, you won’t be able to update the new email address. Hence, enter the correct password.
3. Make sure to put the correct verification code:
Next, after password verification, you can go for the email address verification, where the Twitch team will send a six-digit verification code which you have to enter here. Make sure you enter the correct verification code. Better write the code in the paper and then come back and enter by seeing it.
4. Check you entered the correct Email Address:
Lastly, check the email address properly. Check whether you have entered the email address correctly. Also, check whether you have entered the same email address in both spaces or not. The new email address has to be correct and properly working. Otherwise, you will face difficulty in updating it.
