Frequently Asked Questions

How do I change my LBRY connected email?

« Back to FAQ

In certain cases, you may want to change the email connected to your LBRY App. LBRY stores the email address along with an access token which is unique to each user account. To clear this token, shutdown LBRY and see instructions below for each operating system.

Clearing out this token will allow you to change your email or reset your private access token. When you start up LBRY after clearing the token, you can reconnect an email address by going to Help > Set Email in the About section. After setting the email, your LBRY Rewards status should be transferred to the new account. If this does not happen, please reach out to us via email with your old/new email addresses.
