Will changing my email address affect my data and shared folders somehow?

Will changing my email address affect my data and shared folders somehow?

New member | Level 2

Hi people,

 

I need to change the email address on my account. But before I do I would like to know if I lose any data? Especially because I have a lot of folders administrated by others, where the old email is invited. Will this change automatically? 

 

Thank you in advance!

All the best,

Hi @asbjoernbuch; welcome to our Community and happy Friday!

 

You don't need to worry about this; the change of your account's email address will be reflected across your connected devices and it will also be updated when it comes to shared folders. 

 

Let me know if you have any more questions!
