    Create a new Adobe account

  2. Select your preferred social account (Apple, Google, or Facebook). 

    Note: If your social account is registered through a phone number, you're prompted to provide an email address when setting up your Adobe account. This email then gets linked to your Adobe account.

  Now that you have your Adobe account set up, try the Adobe Account Access app. It allows you to sign in easily and securely to your Adobe account, without having to enter your password.

How to change the email address associated with your Adobe account

You may want to change the email address associated with your Adobe account if you have entered an incorrect email address or if you want to use a new primary email address.

Note: You cannot change the email address if you created your Adobe account using your social account.

  1. In the Account information and access section, select Change next to Primary email.

    Click "Change" next to Primary email (Adobe ID)

  2. Confirm the new primary email address that you want to associate with your Adobe account. 

    Adobe sends you an email to inform you about the change. If you don’t receive the email, see Didn’t receive expected email from Adobe.

Teams user? If you are part of an Adobe teams account (not an Adobe individual customer), reach out to your Adobe admin to change the primary email on your account.

How to manage multiple Adobe accounts

Be sure to always use the same Adobe account (email address or social account) when you purchase a new product or service from Adobe. If you think you have multiple Adobe accounts, you can delete your duplicate accounts and retain only one Adobe account. 

If you are unclear about which email address is associated with your membership or a purchased product, sign in to your account and check your account details.
