Email Address Options

Primary Email Address

The Primary Email Address is the email address used to login to your root account on the Soracom User Console, and can also be used for Soracom API and CLI authentication. In addition, important account information from Soracom (such as payment and service notifications) are sent to this email address.

When changing your Primary Email Address, you will be required to enter your password again for security.

If an email address is used as the Primary Email Address of a different Soracom account, you cannot set it as the Primary Email Address of your Soracom account.

The email address that you set as your Primary Email Address cannot also be set as the Recovery Email Address or as a Billing Email Address.

Recovery Email Address

The Recovery Email Address is an email address used by Soracom to contact you in the event that you have lost access to your Primary Email Address and cannot reset your root account password in order to login to your account. This may be useful in a multi-user organization where you would like to designate a second individual who is authorized to recover access to your Soracom account.

Once a Recovery Email Address has been set, it cannot be removed. However, you can change your Recovery Email Address to another address by adding another email address to your account and modifying your Recovery Email Address setting.

If you cannot access to your Soracom account and are not able to access your Primary Email Address in order to reset your account password, please contact us for assistance.

If you do not set a Recovery Email Address, have lost access to your Soracom account, and are unable to reset your password, you may be required to submit additional information to Soracom in order to recover your account.

Billing Email Address

A Billing Email Address is an optional email address where invoice and payment notifications are sent. This may be useful in a multi-user organization where you would like billing notifications to be sent to an accounting or finance department for record keeping.

You may set up to five (5) additional email addresses as Billing Email Addresses.

When setting your Billing Email Address preferences, your Primary Email Address will continue to receive the same billing notifications.
