A great way to share your photos and videos with your friends is through Instagram. You also need to take precaution to prevent people from seeing your email address if you are not careful. There are a few things you can do if this happens to you: either you go into the “Settings” menu from the Instagram app or you go into the desktop version and make sure “Show my Email Address” is unchecked.
During the process of creating your Instagram account, you may have entered your email address or your mobile number, depending on the information you provided. It is imperative for you to provide this information in order to ensure the safety and security of your account. It will be a great help to get notifications and confirmation about the changes you make to your account settings if you change them. Both the options mentioned above will help you to do that.
If you have decided to remove your email address, then you will need to add your mobile number to your account before you can finally delete your email address.
The following are the steps on how to remove an email address from Instagram:
The first thing you need to do is open Instagram on your smartphone. Once you open the app, you will be directed to the app’s home page.
The second step is to tap on your profile icon located in the bottom right corner of the screen. By doing so, you will be taken to the profile tab of your account.
Under the bio section, the edit profile bar will be visible; tap on it to edit your profile. By doing this, you will be directed to a tab where you can edit the basic details of your Instagram account.
You can also delete the email address that is linked with your account by scrolling all the way to the bottom. You will see a section labeled Personal Info. You will see a menu appear on the screen. If you go to the first option in the menu on the left, you will see the email address tab. Simply tap on it.
If you wish to delete this email address, press the backspace button (cross) on your mobile keyboard.
Tap the blue tick at the top right corner after you have cleared the email id space. Then you are done. The email address of your Instagram account has been deleted or unliked.
