How to change authentication method?


(Stefan Brand) #1

Hi everyone,

I’m at the moment logging in to meta.discourse.org via my Twitter account, but I want to delete that account. That’s the reason why I would like to change to a native authentication method (e.g. log in to meta.discourse.org via email + pw). Is this possible or will I have to create a new account?

Best, Stefan

If the email address matches you can use any authentication method you want. You’ll need to set a password to use local login.

Ok, for noobs like me:

Log in using your Twitter authentication and go to Preferences > Account > Send Password Reset E-Mail. You will receive an e-mail that will let you choose a local password.

Thank you, @pfaffman!
