Sorry, but I'm confused about your post. What do you mean when you indicate that you have to get into "the account" to add it to your Apple ID? Your iCloud email address is a part of your Apple account. And an iCloud alias is only used as an alternative address, it doesn't replace the existing iCloud email address.


Can you explain exactly where you are attempting to do whatever it is you are wanting to do, what you are trying, and what happens when you try that?


Also, OS or iOS level of the device you are referring to would help if you are doing this via a device rather than via iCloud.com on a browser.


Cheers,

I have tried from IOS & iCloud. I had gotten a new phone & when I was setting up my already existing iCloud/Apple account I thought my iCloud email/alias was the same as my Apple ID- not including @icloud.com- but it wasn’t. I didn’t realize until I tried logging into an account of mine using my original iCloud info . Then realizing I cannot get into my social media account without getting the verification code from the original iCloud email alias. I know what the email address is . When I try to log on to check it via IOS it says a verification code was sent to the account, then I tried via iCloud.com it says that it “doesn’t exist” . But I feel like it only says that via iCloud.com bc it’s an alias , not an Apple ID . That’s about the best I can explain ... it’s really complicated . I’ve googled everything on what I can do & whatever I click on takes me right back to iCloud.com logging in- obviously- but it just keeps taking me to a dead end .
