    Please Help: Website Forces Me To Register Using Facebook???


    Hey guys,

    I've been wanting to register on a free website, but it seems that I must sign up using my Facebook account???

    It also has an option to sign up using Google+.

    Can anyone fill me in on how this works?

    Is there another link below, (in small print, of course), 'Use another email address' ?

    Pretty common. I have seen similar sites but they also permitted sign in from other social media accts, e.g. Instagram, Twitter

    Not sure of the reasoning other than to support social media.

    I would also be sure to read the terms of service and/or their privacy statement. With a lot of them it gives them access to your Facebook/Twitter account and all of your contacts.

    I love webpages, which allow to use OpenID to login. Easy to register, even easier to login, no need for another password.

    Never.
    I'll create an account (using a garbage email as my login name).
    But I'll never use facebook or google to sign in. Not ever.

    I've checked and it's not possible to create an account any other way.

    The website is speaky.com.

    Does it seem safe?

    Site looks legit. Looks like you can also use a Google account for sign in.

    Thanks, but I'm still hoping there's another way for me to create an account...?
