Changing the Owner of Your Account

If you are looking to change the owner of your BL.INK account, it may require a bit of a shuffle to get the account configured correctly.

Changing the Owner of Your Account

Before you get started with changing the owner of your account, please note that if the new owner is a current user on the account, you will need to first update the user’s information under their current user. If the owner is not a current user, click here to skip to the next step.

To update a user’s existing information to make the email address available as the new owner, start by logging in to BL.INK. Then click Admin > Users. Find the soon-to-be owner’s current account and click the Edit (pencil) icon to the right.

Here, you’ll temporarily change the user’s email to a different email address to free up the account to be used for the new owner. Click Update to save your changes. This can be updated again once the new owner has been added.

Tip: You may want to write down the login information for the temporary user so that you’re able to access the account and make updates to the user later.

In order to change the owner of your BL.INK account, make sure you’re logged in to BL.INK, then navigate to and click their name on the right side of the dashboard.

Next, click My Account. From the My Account page, you will update the First Name, Last Name, and Email. To save, click Update.

Note: The new owner will own all of the links previously assigned to the old owner.

BL.INK will log you out of the account. If you set up a temporary user, log back into the temporary account, and click the name in the upper right and select My Account. From here, you can make your changes to the user’s account information. Click Update to save.

Note: If you’re changing the email address on the account, you will automatically be logged out of the account upon saving. This is just to refresh the changes, and you’ll need to log in going forward with the new email address.
