Hello,

I have opened my Gmail account lately and created my Facebook account with its reference to it. Now I have lost the Gmail account password or rather my account has been compromised. I can still use the Facebook using the same Gmail account but I am feeling insecure about it. Kindly someone tell me how to change my Facebook reference email address.

3. Click on that small drop down arrow and select Account Settings.

4. In General Account Settings, you will see Email. Click on Edit button against Email.

5. Type your new Email Address and click on Apply changes or Save Button.

You are done.

Thanks.
