It doesn’t matter who or what you are shopping for; everyone wants to unlock the secret to getting the best value for their buck. Since most of our shopping needs revolve around Target, one of the best choices is creating an account and using Target’s app to optimize your shopping experience.
The Target app has multiple benefits: it offers exclusive deals to Target app users and also allows you to attach your orders to your account.
But what if you wish to change particular details about your Target app? How can you change the email on your Target app? This quick step-by-step guide will walk you through the process of changing your email in the Target app.
How to Change Your Email on the Target App
Unfortunately, Target does not allow you to change your email address on the app itself.
If you use the Target app on a mobile device, the only possible way is to use the Target website on a browser to change your email address.
How Can You Change Your Email Address on the Target Website?
Even though the Target app does not allow you to change your email address through the app, there is nothing to worry about. You can easily use the Target website to do so, either on a computer or a mobile device. Here’s how to change to a correct email address:
Changing Your Email Address Using the Target Website and a Computer
The following steps will help you change your email address on the Target app by using two things: a computer and the Target website accessed through a browser:
Start your computer and use a browser to access the Target website.
Sign in to the Target website on your PC as you normally would. Once you have access to the dashboard, go to the screen’s top-right corner and select the “User” icon.
Find and select “Account” from the User list. Once you do that, you have two possible routes to proceed and change your email address. The easiest and quickest is to go to the left side of the screen and select the “Settings” section, which will open up a new array of options.
Select the option labelled “Contact Preferences” and select “Edit.” Type your new email address into the open form, and click “Save” once you are done.
The system will send a confirmation email to your old email address. Open the email and click on the option “Confirm email address.” Once you do this, the system will send a confirmation email to both your old and new email addresses to inform you of the change that has just been made.
Changing Your Email Address Using the Target Website and a Mobile Device
You can also change your Target app email address by accessing the Target website on a mobile device. The following steps will help you do so:
Open the Target website on your mobile device using a browser.
Log in to your Target account as you normally do. Once you can access the profile dashboard, go to the screen’s top right corner and click on the “User” icon. Select “Account” from the options that show up.
Scroll down the list that crops up in “Account” until you find the “Settings” section. Scroll to the right to find “Contact Preferences.”
Select “Contact Preferences” and type in your new email address in the list that opens up. Once you are done, click “Save” to receive a confirmation email to your old Target app email address.
Open the email and select “Confirm email address.” You will now receive confirmation emails on both your old and new email addresses to inform you of the change that has been made.
Having Problems Signing into Your Target Account to Change Your Email Address?
If you face trouble signing in to your Target account on a browser, there is no need to worry. This problem typically occurs because selecting the sign-in icon on the top-right corner of the screen simply reloads the page instead of signing in.
This issue primarily occurs due to the browser; if you try to access the Target website on Adblock Browser, the problem may occur because of the ad-blocking technologies the browser is equipped with. Changing your browser to Google Chrome typically works.
In case the sign-in problem does not resolve on any mobile browser, the next best choice would be to shift to the desktop version of the website and leave the mobile version. The desktop version of the Target website works correctly in both Adblock Browser and Google Chrome.
You can make this change by selecting the icon with three vertical dots and checking the box that says “Desktop Site.” You can reverse back to the mobile version by simply unchecking the box.
Although the desktop version may work better, it may be relatively challenging to navigate. The above-mentioned steps work well for both the mobile and desktop version on a mobile device.
If you cannot update your email address after logging in to your account, there might be two reasons behind it:
- The most common reason is that the new email address you are entering is already associated with another Target account, or you typed in the wrong email address in the change form. You can resolve this issue by rechecking what you have typed and ensuring you have the right address.
- The second reason might be some technical difficulties interfering with the website and hampering your email address change. The only way to resolve this is by contacting Target customer support, who can either try to root out the problem by walking you through the process or communicating the technical glitch to the technical support team.
How to Change Your Target App Email if You Don’t Have Access to Your Current Email Address?
Since the Target website sends a confirmation email to your current email when changing the email address, the only way you can change your email if you do not have access to it is by asking Target customer support to change it for you.
In this case, they may ask you for your current email address and the one you wish to change it to.
Although the Target app does not allow you to change your email address through the app itself, you can easily do so by accessing the Target website on your mobile device or computer and following the easy steps mentioned above.
