This post is also available in: 日本語 Русский Français Español Nederlands Српски Українська Dansk

To update your account information, first go to your Vivaldi account’s profile:

  1. Log in on Vivaldi.net;
  2. Hover the mouse over your username or avatar in the top right corner of the page;
  3. From the menu select Profile.

Profile image

To upload a new profile image:

  1. Click on the current image;
  2. Choose the new image file (max size – 5MB);
  3. Crop, if needed;
  4. Click Done.

If you don’t see the new profile image on the forum or blogs, log out of the account and in again.


Your name will be displayed on the Forum and Blogs, if you choose to do so.

To change your name in Vivaldi webmail, go to Settings > Identities.

Recovery email

To change your account’s recovery email:

  1. Enter the new email address;
  2. Click Update;
  3. Head to the new recovery email’s mailbox and look for a ‘Recovery Email Change Request‘ email from Vivaldi;
  4. Open the link in the email (the link is valid for 48 hours);
  5. Enter your account’s login password and click Verify email address;

When you return to the profile, you’ll see the new email.

Phone number

The phone number is only required from users, who registered their account after 16th of Oct, 2019 and want to access webmail and blogs. Users with older accounts currently can’t add a phone number to their profile as there’s no use for it for them.

To verify your phone number:

  1. Type in your phone number (needs to be able to receive text messages and can’t be linked to other Vivaldi accounts);
  2. Click Update;
  3. Check your phone for the code;
  4. Enter the code on the new page and click Submit.

In case you have trouble receiving the SMS, please get in touch with us below.

Once you’ve verified the phone number, it’s no longer possible to change it. But since there’s no other use for it at this stage, that’s ok. Should we add features that require the use of your phone in the future, we’ll make it possible to update the number.

If you really want to change the phone number, please get in touch with us via the contact form at the end of this article. Include the username and the current phone number in the message.

Newsletter subscription

Change whether you receive Technical Update and Vivaldi News newsletters from Vivaldi. Newsletter subscription can also be updated on Vivaldi.com:

Login password

To change your login password:

  1. Click on Change password in the bottom left corner of the page;
  2. Enter the current password and then the new password twice;
  3. Click Update.
  4. Log in with the new password.

Alternatively, you can send yourself a password reset email here.

Trouble updating the profile?

In case you see an error message ‘Can’t verify the user‘ after clicking Update on the profile and you’re using an Extension called Dark Reader, please disable it and restart the browser. Then try updating your account information again. We’ve confirmed that Dark Reader breaks functionality on Vivaldi.net, but there may be other extensions causing this issue as well.

In case disabling extensions and trying again didn’t help, please report the issue to us using the contact form below.
