Please don't do that, Email address should be unique, if you do that you will end up with multiple users with the same email address, you thought a little if you ever want to load user by email ? something like this:


public function get($email, $websiteId = null);

Or with the object manager (not recommended but just for the exemple):

$CustomerModel = $objectManager->create('Magento\Customer\Model\Customer');
$userId = $CustomerModel->getId();

I think you have the answer.


Path : vendor/magento/module-customer/Controller/Account/CreatePost.php::execute()

} catch (StateException $e) {
            $url = $this->urlModel->getUrl('customer/account/forgotpassword');
            // @codingStandardsIgnoreStart
            $message = __(
                'There is already an account with this email address. If you are sure that it is your email address, <a href="%1">click here</a> to get your password and access your account.',
            // @codingStandardsIgnoreEnd

Important: It's just to show you the piece of code, if you want to change the behavior of your Magento go ahead it's your responsibility and don't change it in this path, you have to rewrite it in app/code/...

  • but where should i put this Sep 17, 2018 at 8:25
  • No, you should put it anywhere, just to show that if you do that (remove email already exist validation), it will cause you problems later.
