Email change requires password even when using Google account auth

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to change my account's email address but it seems to be impossible to do if using Google authentication.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Sign up using Google Sign-up option (no separate Evernote password is required)

2. Go to https://www.evernote.com/Settings.action 

3. Scroll down to Email > Select "Manage email address"

4. Select "Change Email"

5. The current password and new email are requested. No Everhour password was ever set so this form cannot be used. Entering the associated Google account email address does not work either.

Hi.  If a third-party login method (Apple or Google) isn't working, you can set up - or remind yourself of - an Evernote password for direct access.

  1. Go to this web page and complete the details: https://www.evernote.com/ForgotPassword.action 
  2. Check your inbox for an email to set up an Evernote password.
  3. Creating an Evernote password will not affect your other login.

Once you have the password you can change the email address.
