I wasn't getting the remove button in the account chooser either, but it's actually easier now: Sign out of the account you want to remove. Click on the accounts drop down menu (top right). Click the signed out account. You'll see overlaid options to Remove or Sign In; click Remove.

There's too much variation in how web apps implement user authentication to answer this. Some will delete the cookies they've created; some will destroy the "session" variables that are associated with your account and your current browsing...session; others will just redirect you to a login page. When I build web apps with user authentication, the user is ...

I was able to work around this by turning on 2-step verification, setting up app passwords, then turning 2-step verification back off. When you turn it off, it asks if you want to clear verification data. I said no; I don't know whether that matters. After turning it off, the app passwords link is still available, and my applications still login fine.

According to this Microsoft site, accounts were deleted after 120 days of inactivity in 2007. http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/newsroom/msn/factsheet/hotmail.mspx. Lifehacker confirms this: http://lifehacker.com/5325867/never-use-hotmail-inactive-webmail-as-your-secondary-email-account And Hotmail user names are up for grabs 6 months after expiration or ...

There may be a way, but being a new feature it isn't documented. Judging from their similar FAQ topic on how to merge with a Facebook account, it wouldn't be pretty (or ideal - comments, message board posts and a bunch of other stuff are lost). Your best bet will be to ask at the IMDB Help Desk unless a new FAQ gets posted soon.

I found that it was the Smart Labels feature available in Labs that caused the infinite redirect loop. After using http://mail.google.com/mail/?labs=0 to get into my mail, I disabled that lab feature. After that, I could access email again normally. It's a shame this answer (specifically to use the labs=0 URL) isn't listed anywhere in the Google Apps help ...

As an additional observation to the other answers, always use the site's log out function when you are not on your computer. Always! Because: ...it's possible on some web apps that your login is associated with a persistent cookie, or your IP address, or whatever, and just closing the browser won't log you out. In such a case it's conceivable that ...

Some websites don't log you off unless you click "Log Out". Even if you restart your computer, those sites could keep you logged in (unless the cookies are automatically removed by your web browser); so anyone who opens that site on your computer could be logged in as you. I've experienced this with many websites. Hence, I recommend you always clicking "...

Create a Page Add to My Page's Favorites etc... Click "Is this your business?" and proceed with verification. If you fail at that, contact Facebook customer support and (it has worked ...

You don't need to reuse the application-specific password as long as the application is remembering the password you give it. If you don't let the application remember your password, I think you will have to generate a new one every time you want to log in.

This is an answer by someone on Facebook help center; thought to share it with you guys, maybe it is really working: Log in to your account then go the Ads manager page https://www.facebook.com/ads/manage/ From the right menu, click Settings then you can see Close Ads account. Chose Other and write account changed to Facebook ads by mistake then ...

Google presents a normal login screen when I spoof Chrome's User Agent to make the site (accounts.google.com) think that Chrome is IE9. So, it seems like this is some special login that they are providing for Chrome users but unfortunately it is breaking my password manager (KeePass). This doesn't seem to have anything to do with an already logged-in ...

You are absolutely right that this can be confusing sometimes. In case of Uber it is especially weird since the Google search result for 'Uber app login' shows Sign In. Connect with Facebook. or use email. Email. Password. Remember Me. Sign In. Forgot Password. Don't have an account? Sign Up. and the Uber page itself does not offer this option. However ...

If you're asking so that you can login to your account: Use the "Forgotten account?" link. This allows you to get your information by using your: Email Phone number (if set up) Username (which it sounds like you're looking for, so you would want to use one of the other options) Full Name You can also associate multiple emails to the same account, and you ...

This is due to do your usage of Facebook Workplace prior to login in to personal Facebook. The auto-populated e-mail 1580979448583207_xdzdsmbm@tfbworknw.net was the cache from Facebook Workplace.

The problem is now solved after 3 weeks. I told my cousin to send Facebook (ip@facebook.com) an email explaining the problem in detail together with the screenshots. He did so and waited a few days without getting a reply. Then I told him to send the same email to Facebook various times. So he sent the same email twice a day to that address. There was still ...

They use Facebook's JS library to authenticate and use the available data to sign in to their website. The cookie is not shared. Sites like Yelp may use the data provided by the JS library to create new session/cookies and use that to detect if you've accessed that site later on. More details can be found in Facebook's documentation.

Bookmark and use https://www.facebook.com/login.php instead - the signup form that Facebook also put on the frontpage facebook.com causes issues with Lastpass.

I sometimes have a similar issue. I believe this happens when you indeed use different Google services at the same time, and from time to time switch accounts on a service. Then the other service on a different tab seems to get confused. Try clearing all of the *.google.* cookies of your browser.

You don't have an explicit "OpenID credential". OpenID is a standard for authentication; the whole point of it is that you have an account from some provider, and they authenticate you for other sites. It's not that a Google account comes with some OpenID certificate; the Google account is the OpenID account.

There's an easy way to do this using Chrome's Basic Settings: Open Chrome, log into Trello. Go to Chrome options and choose "Re-open the pages that were open last". Close Chrome without logging out of Trello and your Trello tab will be reopened automatically and log you in next time.

I had the very same problem but it was only affecting my ability to log into Trello using my Google Apps credentials AND on Google Chrome. I believe it was some strange redirect problem. In any case, I solved it as follows: Logged into Trello using FireFox and my Google Apps Credentials Opened a board Copy the URL for that board Attempt to log into Trello ...

Yes, you'd be able to log in with the same password that you'd use with your email, if you used your phone number. According to this Facebook FAQ: If you signed up for Facebook from your mobile phone, you can use your phone number and the password you created during the sign up process to log in on from a computer or phone.

There are a number of browser extensions out there that can help with that. One such for Chrome is Anti-Phishing & Authenticity Checker. This particular extension puts an icon in the address bar when you are actually at facebook.com, twitter.com, youtube.com or google.com. There are quite a few others. Just search for "phishing" in the extension/add-on ...
