Transferring account ownership

The owner of the email address associated with a Typeform account is usually considered the owner of that Typeform account. (This article has more information on who is legally considered the owner of a Typeform account.)

To change the email address for a Typeform account, log in with the email address that’s currently associated with the account. Click your avatar in the top right corner, then choose Settings.

Warning! This process does not apply to accounts that were created using Google sign-up. If you would like to change ownership of an account with Google sign-up, please contact Support using the link at the bottom of this article.

Click Preferences in the left-hand sidebar. Then, go to the Login details section and click the Change email button.

Enter the account’s current password, then the new email address you want to use. Click Confirm. (Make sure that the new email is not already being used for an existing Typeform account - this will bring up a message saying "something's not right". To fix the issue, log into that account and change the account email address.)

Confirm the new email address from the account's inbox to finish up.
