How Do I Change the Email or Username I Log in With?

You can change your email address or username right in your General Settings!


Before we get started - are you new to Idealist.org, but using a login set up by someone else? If so, you may want to create your own loginbecome an administrator, and remove any outdated administrators from the organization before you change your email address! 


If you’re just looking to change your email address and login to an updated one on Idealist.org, start by logging in using your account’s current email address and password. Next, click on your name at the top right corner of the page and select My Account” from the drop-down menu.

This will bring up your General Settings. In the email address field, you can enter the new email address you want to use and click “Save” at the bottom of the page.


Once you’ve updated your email address, you’ll receive a verification email to your updated email address with a link to verify the address. Click on the verification link in the email; you should see a webpage confirming that it has been verified. You’ll then be able to use your new email address to log in to Idealist.org.
