Flickr will allow its users to identify themselves without Yahoo mail


The graphic content web platform Flickr has announced an update to its user identification system that will be disseminated in the coming weeks with which, for the first time since its creation 10 years ago, the service allows validation from email accounts other than Yahoo!

SmugMug, the company that acquired Flickr last April 2018, has announced through a statement the new identification mechanism, which it has defined as “the characteristic most demanded by our community.”

Previously, to identify themselves on Flickr, users of the platform had to have a Yahoo email account. The new registration system allows you to register using email accounts from other providers securely, according to the company.

To implement the new access system, Flickr requires validation with the previous Yahoo account, and from then on it allows choosing a new username and password through another email account, both for registration and for communication with the service.

SmugMug has ensured that due to the large number of Flickr users, the update of its identification system will be distributed gradually over “the next few weeks”. The platform has already introduced a redesign of the “log in” screen.
