Question for Home Office

UIN 96102, tabled on 28 September 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether she has made an assessment of the potential merits of updating the Government's passport renewal website to make applicants aware that they can enter a family or friend's email address if they do not have an email address themselves.

While people can provide the email address of a third party as part of their online passport application, for security purposes Her Majesty’s Passport Office strongly recommends the use of a personal email address. As such, there are no plans to change the guidance relating to this.
