Changing Your Email Address

Overview

Use the following steps to change the email address associated with your account. Since your email address also serves as your SmartVault user ID, the new email address you enter will also be your new SmartVault user ID when logging in. If you have used the new email address to sign up for any SmartVault logins, you will not be able to change your current email address to that one.

 

Note: An Administrator CANNOT modify a contact's name or email address once they have been invited to SmartVault.  For security reasons, the client will have to login and modify their information following the steps listed below.  

 

Note: In order to update your email address, your password must meet or exceed SmartVault's current minimum security requirements before you are able to change your email address.  For example: if you created a SmartVault account several years ago using an 8-digit password and you now wish to change the email address associated with your SmartVault account, you will have to update your password to the current standard (12-digits minimum) before you can change the email address on your account.

Steps

To change your email address:

1. Open the SmartVault client portal.​ For more information, see Sign in to the SmartVault Client Portal.
2. Click My Info in the upper right menu in the SmartVault portal header.

Considerations

Your email address will not be changed until you click on the confirmation link in the email you receive. The email may take a few minutes to reach your Inbox. If you do not receive an email with a confirmation link, please contact Support here.

If you do not confirm your email address change by clicking the confirmation link in the email sent to your new email address, your My Info screen will not reflect the email address change. Your My Info screen will remind you to confirm your change and will display the email address used to mail you the confirmation link.
