Change Your Account Email Address

If you need to change the email address you use for your Glowforge account, not to worry, we've made the process really easy for you. But before you make the change, there are a couple of things we want you to know.

Things to Know About Changing Your Account Email

  • The email you use to log into the Glowforge app is linked to your design library, Glowforge Premium membership, and referral credits. When you change your email, all of these things will be transferred to your new email address.

  • Account security is a big deal here at Glowforge! You will need to log into your Glowforge account in order to initiate this change.
    • If you do not remember the password for your account, click the Need Help? link on the login page to reset your password.
    • If you have extenuating circumstances and can't access the Glowforge account, you can contact our Customer Success team for assistance.

  • A confirmation email regarding the requested email change will be sent to both your original email account and your new email account. You will need access to your new email account as part of the change process.
