I am running my account with stack-exchange login. For recovery and security account has one email id by using which I logged in.

Now, can I register second email id to same account as a secondary or alternative email id by which I will recover my account if required in feauture? (Though I can successfully login with my 1st-primary email id)

Then how to add secondary email id to my account? or It is not permitted.

You can add other OpenID logins. This relies on you having another account elsewhere but any of them will log you into SE globally.

I realise that isn't the same thing as what you're asking but has the same effect.

  • Just to note, there is a problem with meta, as it won't allow you to add more logins. It is only working on main. Trying to see if the bug is already reported.

  • @Dan I don't think it's a bug. Meta doesn't have all the features main does.
