Why am I getting an error "An account with this email address already exists"?

If you're getting an error such as An account with this email address already exists, it means that you have created two different accounts. This happens if you register with a Social Account (Facebook, Twitter, GitHub or Google), then register again using our sign up form.

In this case, you need to remove one of these account, to do so:

  1. Log out from the account associated with your email

  2. Log in using the social account instead

  3. Delete this account at www.gitbook.com/settings​

  4. Log in again using your email

  5. Associate the Social Account to your email account at www.gitbook.com/settings​
