Yahoo to require Yahoo ID; no more Facebook or Google logins
To access Yahoo Sports Tourney Pick’Em up, users now need a Yahoo ID — soon the same will be mandatory for services like Flickr and Fantasy Sports.
Yahoo has begun the gradual phase-out of letting people access certain services with their Facebook or Google logins. Now, to sign into all services, users will need a Yahoo ID.
The first service to stop allowing other login credentials was Yahoo Sports Tourney Pick’Em up; and soon services like Flickr and Fantasy Sports will also require a Yahoo ID.
“Yahoo is continually working on improving the user experience, which includes our sign-in process for Yahoo Sports Tourney Pick’Em,” a Yahoo spokesperson told CNET. “This new process, which now asks users to sign in with a Yahoo username, will allow us to offer the best personalized experience to everyone.”
