I'm using Magento 2.2.6, How can I get the email ID of logged in user to show in header.



First, create an instance in header.phtml file as below and also if more than one store is available and one wants to get mail in only one of the stores.

enter image description here

    $objectManager =  \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();        
    $storeManager  = $objectManager->get('\Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface');
    $storeID       = $storeManager->getStore()->getStoreId(); 
    $storeName     = $storeManager->getStore()->getName();

    $customerSession = $om->get('Magento\Customer\Model\Session');
    if($customerSession->isLoggedIn()) {
            echo $customerSession->getCustomer()->getEmail(); // get Email
  • Thanks, and how can I place it below the customer name in customer-welcome element. – user54226 Nov 22 '18 at 14:32

You need to inject \Magento\Customer\Model\Session $customerSession, class to get customer ID from customer session. Try this code.

protected $_customerSession;

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Customer\Model\Session $customerSession,
) {
    $this->_customerSession = $customerSession;

public function getCustomer()
    echo $this->_customerSession->getCustomer()->getId(); //Print current customer ID

    $customerData = $this->_customerSession->getCustomer(); 
    print_r($customerData->getData()); //Print current Customer Data
    echo 'Customer Id: ' . $customerData->getId() . '<br/>';
    echo 'Customer Name: ' . $customerData->getName() . '<br/>';
    echo 'Customer Email: ' . $customerData->getEmail() . '<br/>';
    echo 'Customer Group Id: ' . $customerData->getGroupId() . '<br/>';

NOTE: You only get customer id if customer logged in and customer session initialized
