how to stop signing in with facebook
Posted: Monday, December 17, 2018 9:55:26 AM
I signed in with facebook option once and now it won't allow me to just sign in normally. When I start to sign in it just does it automatically with my facebook account and I can't find a way to fix it so that it doesn't sign in with facebook. Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

Maybe go into FB settings and see if Zazzle is listed somewhere and, if so, remove it *shrugs*

You should be able to use the email and password that you use for Fb, to sign in the normal way. This isn't a tech issue, so moving this to Your Z Store.

Yes, you will have to set your Facebook settings and disallow permission for Facebook to sign in for you.

That is strange though, I sign in with Facebook a lot but I still always have the option to use my email and password and FB never just automatically signs me in. I always have to click it twice to confirm it.

Question: Given that Facebook has, on occasion, been hacked and user info taken, couldn't using FB to sign in have the potential for leakage from there to here? I'm not saying it can happen--I don't know. Maybe it's my learned distrust of FB.

Good question? For me It is an easy way to get around a recaptcha.

Hi Colorowash,

We cannot ensure that any company isn’t vulnerable to being hacked. That being said, there steps you can take to keep your user accounts better protected like 1) sign-up for 2-step verification for your account on any site that offers it 2) don’t reuse your passwords 3) use multiple character combinations for your passwords 4) update your passwords regularly.

Hope this helps!
Thanks!

Thanks, Elizabeth. Just like so many people, I'm lazy when it comes to passwords, but even so, can't a hacker pick up on one of your passwords anyway?

Regardless, what I was wondering about was if it's possible to find a door into Zazzle itself via a place like Facebook, not a door into our own private finances. If I can think of this possibility, couldn't one of the ne'er-do-wells think of it?

Hi Colorwash,

Zazzle has the highest security protocol, however, we can’t guarantee that other companies aren’t vulnerable. And although the latest Facebook hack did not get access to usernames and passwords, we do recommend taking actions to keep your accounts secure by signing up for 2-step verification and following the steps to protect your passwords (don’t reuse your passwords, use multiple character combinations for your passwords, and update your passwords regularly.)

Thanks!

Thanks Elizabeth for the suggestions to keep the account secure.

Ultimately, the hackers always seem to be one step ahead. Some years back, the New York State DMV thought it a clever money-making scheme to sell their database to companies willing to pay, which at the very least meant monumental spam, but at its worst, it meant that if those companies were vulnerable, so were we citizens. Needless to say, the moment it was found out what the DMV was doing, the citizens screamed bloody murder, and the practice ceased. But can we get Facebook or other social media to stop the same practice?

My solution has been to sign up for as little as possible. (Anyone ever notice you can't actually quit Facebook?)

My husband did. He was posting political and religious things that they didn’t like and were gonna ban him anyway so he closed his account. I can’t remember how now because that was about a year ago but I can’t find any trace of him ever being there. But there is a way to do it permanently or at least there was then.

I haven’t been on Facebook in 5 or 6 years, but it used to be that, while you could close your account and it no longer be visible, it was still there in Facebook no man’s land. So I think if your husband were to log in again he would see everything just as he left it.

here is what FB documentation says...

Deleting Accounts
How do I permanently delete my Facebook account?
What happens if I permanently delete my Facebook account?

You won't be able to reactivate your account.
Your profile, photos, posts, videos, and everything else you've added will be permanently deleted. You won't be able to retrieve anything you've added.
You'll no longer be able to use Facebook Messenger.
You won't be able to use Facebook Login for other apps you may have signed up for with your Facebook account, like Spotify or Pinterest. You may need to contact the apps and websites to recover those accounts.
Some information, like messages you sent to friends, may still be visible to them after you delete your account. Copies of messages you have sent are stored in your friends' inboxes.


I realize that because they say it doesn't make it true... they also said they cared about our privacy.

That’s good to know. I have my account up because I figure it is backup for all the family pictures I put up over the years I was active on there, but hubby was super annoyed he couldn’t delete everything so he’ll be glad to know he can go back in and do that now. Thanks Shelli!

I still have mine too mostly so I can use it to sign in to other things like Zazzle... ironically. Laughing

Now I remember why elected to keep my FB account but post nothing whatsoever: Every now and then, I want to see something there, which can't be done unless you have an account.

It's my understanding that Facebook has lost a lot of members over the past year, which means they're likely to look for ever more creative revenue streams, which will, in turn, probably alienate even more people.

I have heard of two different new SM sites trying to form and pick up on X-FBookers. neither one of them appealed to me either...
