RemNote currently supports three means of logging in and authenticating yourself: a username and password, a Google account, or an Apple account. It's possible to have several of these methods active at once, but if you have more than one, they must use the same email address. This means that when switching login methods, you may need an extra step to change your email address.

All of the buttons discussed in this article can be found in Settings > Profile:

Changing your email address when using only a username and password to log in

Choose Change Email. You'll be prompted to enter a new email address and your account will be switched over.

If you use a username and password to log in, but you also have a Google or Apple account linked to your RemNote account, this will not work; you'll receive a message asking you to unlink the account first. Please instead follow the directions in the Changing your email address when using both a Google or Apple account and a username and password to log in section, below.

Adding a Google or Apple account when using only a username and password to log in

If the Google or Apple account has the same email address as your RemNote account, you can simply choose Add Google Login or Add Apple Login.

If the Google or Apple account uses a different email address from the email address currently on your RemNote account:

  1. Change the email address on your RemNote account to match that of your Google/Apple account using the Change Email button.

  2. Choose Add Google Login or Add Apple Login, as appropriate.

Changing your email address when using both a Google or Apple account and a username and password to log in

If you have both a Google/Apple account and a username and password, the Change Email button won't work directly because you can only have one email address associated with your account at a time, and Google and Apple accounts are associated with a specific email address which RemNote cannot alter.


The steps to continue here are the same as for changing your email address when using only a Google or Apple account, except that you can skip step 1. Please see the section below, starting at step 2.

Changing your email address when using only a Google or Apple account to log in

Since Google and Apple accounts are both associated with specific email addresses which RemNote cannot alter, you'll need to change your login details to change your email address. Follow these steps:

  1. Add a username and password to your account using the Add Password button.

  2. Disconnect your Google or Apple account using the Disconnect Google Login or Disconnect Apple Login button (this button won't appear until you've completed step 1). This step is required because you can only have one email address associated with the account, and you're trying to change the email address to a different one than on the Google or Apple account.

  3. Choose Change email and change your email address to the new email address.

  4. If you've changed your email address to an address associated with a different Google or Apple account, and you want to be able to use this new Google or Apple account to log in to RemNote, select Add Google Login or Add Apple Login and follow the prompts.
