Yahoo plans to end the ability for users to sign in to the company’s various Web properties using Facebook or Google login credentials.
That means that in the future, in order to access Yahoo-owned and operated sites, you’ll have to do it by signing in via a Yahoo login. The first site to end such support for Facebook and Twitter logins will be one of Yahoo’s fantasy sports properties, Yahoo Sports Tourney Pick’em.
“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 Re/code. “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.”
