Hi, I logged in to today with my Google-Account and got the message, that only OpenID-Accounts will be valid in the future and I should migrate to OpenID.

However, I can't find a way to do this. Should this be performed inside Google, or inside this website? I want to avoid that I can't log into this site in May 2015 anymore. Any ideas or official resources?

@Guanta , basically google wants everyone to use g+ login instead of the old openid, so they're sunsetting this

btw, the title of this question is a bit misleading, as you're supposed to move from openID2.0 to Google+ Sign-In

found an askbot topic already: , but my guess is, nothing will happen from the askbot side soon (they're quite slow on anything)

"Should this be performed inside Google, or inside this website" - again, @Alex, they want you to move to g+, and they want this site to change the login procedure.

Alex, if i may say something, - i needed a google account, too, recently, but opted for a plain e-mail verification instead of openid, or anything else.

the last thing i want on earth is to log on to github or this site with the same logon i'd use for youtube, tinder or whatever, think of it.

@berak: thanks for the clarification! @alexander-pacha: you could also change your log-in completely, imho I wouldn't use google for any verification stuff...

Thanks for the infos, still I don't know how to change my verification here from Google to plain mail/password.

In your account settings "manage login methods" -> add here a new one.
