No sharing the same email address

You are required to use only your own email address, which means that those accounts might not share with the similar one.

Issues changing email address

If you are trying to get your email address changed and you notice that it is seldom updated after you save the changes, there might be the fact that the email address you are trying to use can be linked with other WordPress account. The reason is each email address is allowed to associate with one WordPress account only, hence, it cannot be reused.

In order to deal with this issue, you can try to use another email address which is not previously used before or log in to the current account by using your email address you wish and update it to another thing. Whenever it is changed, you can reuse the email address on different accounts.

In case you ask for change, however, you do not receive any email confirmation, do contact with WordPress support team.

Set Privacy

Take note that whenever you comment on any blog on WordPress, and you are logging in at the same time, your own email will be set available to the blog’s owner as he or she sees your comment. When people comment on your post, you will see the similarity. However, not so many people feel uncomfortable with that. If you also feel the same, you need to log out of WordPress before commenting.
