You can set a primary email address on GitHub that's associated with web-based Git operations you perform such as edits and merges. Alternatively, you can choose to keep your personal email address private and use a GitHub-provided
noreply email address for your web-based Git operations.
Any commits you made prior to changing your commit email address are still associated with your previous email address.
If you haven't enabled email address privacy, you can choose which verified email address to author changes with when you edit, delete, or create files on GitHub. If you enabled email address privacy, then the commit author email address cannot be changed and is
firstname.lastname@example.org by default.
You cannot verify email addresses from disposable domains. If you'd like to keep your email address private, you can use a GitHub-provided
noreply email address. For more information, see "About commit email addresses."
For more information on commit email addresses, including your GitHub-provided
noreply email address, see "About commit email addresses."
