    Not sure if this is a bug or feature request but i'll put it here.

    User Should Not Be Able to Update Email Under Settings Without Verification


    Email verification is enabled on the site. User verifies and creates email. User is then able to go to settings and simple update email to whatever they want without verifying the new email.

    This means a user can make a typo or other issue and not know it. There should be a re-verification before the original verified email is removed as is standard procedure.

    You've got my vote :)


    I'd suggest to also include a 2nd email entry field on the Settings page where email may be changed.  These 2 must match before the page may be saved.  This should help cut down on typos (should, not would since some may type the same incorrect email 2x or worse yet, copy the first into the 2nd field).  SE may turn this into 2 FRs but my thought is that it's all about the email verification process, so hopefully SE will allow this as one FR.

    This is actually in the feature requests in the old GH and is a good idea as well.

    It's more secure also.
