Add/update my alternate email address

Looking to add/update an alternate email address on your AOL account?

An alternate email address is any email address other than your AOL email address. If you haven't provided an alternate email address to AOL at the time of your sign up, we recommend that you add one now. However, if you have already provided an email address and want to change it to a different one, you can do that by following the steps given below.

1. Visit My Account and sign in with your master AOL Username or Email and Password.

2. Answer your Account Security Question and then click Continue.

3. Under Account Options, click Update My Contact Information.

4. To add an alternate email address, click Edit under Contact Information.

5. Enter your alternate email address into the Alternate Email field and then click Save.

6. A confirmation message should appear at the top of your My Account Overview page stating that your contact information has been updated.
