Back in November 2018, Flickr announced that it was going to ditch the mandatory Yahoo login system. And now it’s finally happening. Over the next few weeks, all Flickr users will become able to log into their profiles even without the Yahoo account.

It’s been almost a year since Flickr was acquired by SmugMug. While some other changes have been implemented since then, Flickr writes that the single most requested feature by the community has been a new login.

Since there are a huge number of Flicks accounts, the process will take a few weeks. Once the update is available for your account, Flickr will lead you through a simple process that will allow you to select your new login email address and a new password.

“Initially, you’ll be required to use either your Yahoo sign-in email address or your primary contact email address,” Flickr writes. But you can update the primary address at any time, just follow these instructions. This new email address will be the only one related with your Flickr account, and it will be used for both login and all correspondence.

If you’re anything like me, you’re looking forward to deleting your Yahoo account. After all those security issues, the only reason I still have it is because of Flickr. But don’t rush in: Flickr urges you to make sure that you still have the access to your Yahoo login credentials, so your Flickr login upgrade goes smoothly.
