All validations are defined in


You can see validation-email

"validate-email": [
    function (v) {
        return $.mage.isEmptyNoTrim(v) || /^([a-z0-9,!\#\$%&'\*\+\/=\?\^_`\{\|\}~-]|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])+(\.([a-z0-9,!\#\$%&'\*\+\/=\?\^_`\{\|\}~-]|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])+)*@([a-z0-9-]|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])+(\.([a-z0-9-]|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF])+)*\.(([a-z]|[\u00A0-\uD7FF\uF900-\uFDCF\uFDF0-\uFFEF]){2,})$/i.test(v);
    'Please enter a valid email address (Ex: [email protected]).'

Override register.phtml to your theme


remove 'validate-email':true from data-validate


<input type="email" name="email" autocomplete="email" id="email_address" value="<?php echo $block->escapeHtml($block->getFormData()->getEmail()) ?>" title="<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo __('Email') ?>" class="input-text" data-validate="{required:true}">

  • "Email" is not a valid email address. From where this message is executed? May 9, 2017 at 10:14
  • data-validate is knockout js. All validations are coming from lib/web/mage/validation.js May 9, 2017 at 10:20
  • You can see all validations in Magento2/lib/web/mage/validation.js file May 9, 2017 at 10:24
  • how to remove it? May 9, 2017 at 10:42

Additionally to the above answer you need to change the input type from type="email" to type="text", then it will not be validated anymore as email.
