Flickr Introduces New Login that Doesn’t Require a Yahoo Account

Loathe being forced to have a Yahoo! account just so you can use Flickr? You’re not alone. SmugMug, Flickr’s new owner since April 2018, has said that a new login without that requirement was users’ number one feature request. Well, now you’ve finally got your shiny new login page—and you’ll be able to change to whatever email and password you fancy.

“We set to work right away to bring all our members a new, secure login method that doesn’t require a Yahoo account,” reads Flickr’s announcement blog post, “and we’re thrilled that the time has come to begin migrating members to the new login.” Apparently, from today (March 4), more than 100 million users—invitations were sent out—can make use of the new feature. Eventually, within a few weeks, everyone on the platform should have been invited.

“Once the update is available to you, you’ll be led through a process that will allow you to select new login credentials including a new password,” writes Flickr. “Initially you’ll be required to use one of the email addresses currently attached to your Flickr account. If you’d like to specify a new one after you’ve completed the login upgrade process, you’ll be able to change it in your account settings.”
