Account Deactivation / Email


I have tried looking for an email or link to contact you but I have been unsuccessful.

I have two Duolingo accounts, as it turns out. I have deactivated my old one that I forgot I had made a while back AFTER I had created a new account.

Is there a way for my old account to be deleted or released? I am trying to update the email address on my account and it is saying that the email is still in use.

Thank you, Vincenzo

You can log-in to the old one (deactivating accounts don't fully delete them) and change the email to something random (No email checks). Then go back into your current account and change it.
