In March this year Yahoo notified users of their services that third-party logins would eventually be phased out, meaning that you would no longer be able to access Yahoo-owned properties with the likes of your Facebook and Google credentials. One of the first to be making the change is photo-sharing/hosting service Flickr, which will be dropping third-party login functionality come 30 June, according to an email from Yahoo.
Flickr users will instead have to use a Yahoo account in order to sign in to Flickr, something that should preferably be taken care of before the changeover happens. Users who use their Google or Facebook details should create and link a Yahoo account to their Flickr profiles in order to be able to access their accounts after the end of this month.
Other Yahoo-owned services are still due to be changed over to Yahoo-only but there is no available schedule for which services will be changing when. Based on the company’s speed so far, the switches probably won’t be coming thick and fast.
