Flickr dumps Google, Facebook logins and demands Yahoo account instead Flickr informed users this week that they will no longer be able to use Google and Facebook accounts to login from this month.
Instead Flickr is demanding that its users login using Yahoo, as Facebook and Google sign-ins will be removed soon.

"Over the next few weeks, if you have been logging in with Facebook and Google IDs, you will be prompted to create a Yahoo username and password when you access your Flickr account," wrote Markus Spiering, head of product manager, Flickr.

"If you already have a Yahoo account, you will be reminded and prompted to use those log-in details."

Spiering says that you can expect a streamlined sign-in experience across Flickr and other Yahoo properties, and dedicated service from Yahoo Customer Care.

To change over to a Yahoo account sign in, you can start here.
