GitHub allows you to add as many email addresses to your account as you like. If you set an email address in your local Git configuration, you will need to add it to your account settings in order to connect your commits to your account. For more information about your email address and commits, see "Setting your commit email address."
You can change the email address associated with your user account at any time.
Use a backup email address as an additional destination for security-relevant account notifications and to securely reset your password if you can no longer access your primary email address.
You can set the email address that is used to author commits on GitHub and on your computer.
If you've chosen to keep your email address private when performing web-based operations, you can also choose to block command line pushes that may expose your personal email address.

There are several types of emails you can receive from GitHub, including notifications, account information, customer research invitations, and marketing communications.
In addition to notifications and account emails, GitHub occasionally sends marketing emails with news and information about our products. If you unsubscribe from existing marketing emails, you won't be included in future campaigns unless you change your GitHub email settings.
