• If you have been using services from Yahoo by logging in using your Facebook or Google IDs, that will have to be stopped soon. A spokesperson from Yahoo Inc. has shared that the company will be soon blocking access to its many online services, via third-party login credentials. This will make it mandatory for users to access some of the heavily used apps such as Flickr (the photo sharing portal) or Fantasy Sports using a Yahoo! ID. This is a strategic move that comes to Yahoo! under its chief - Marissa Mayer's leadership. The CEO is trying her best to bring back the dead spark in Yahoo's apps and services and take the company's revenue to a better place.

    Yahoo! will be rolling out the 'mandatory Yahoo ID to access' change gradually over the next few months. Yahoo believes that by using its personal access IDs, they will be able to offer an unified and personalized experience to all. The new sign-in process will first become necessary for Yahoo Sports Tourney Pick'Em, a service developed for the NCAA college basketball tournament which begins in March end.


    After taking the office in 2012, Marrisa Mayer has implemented some big changes such as giving a new look to Yahoo Mail and Yahoo Finance as well as bringing the new Yahoo News Digest. Back in 2013, Yahoo tried to revive the inactive Yahoo user accounts by letting new users claim email addresses that Bid Goodbye To Your Yahoo Mail If You Haven't Logged In Since A Year. In the past, Yahoo has acquired 30 companies (Yahoo Acquires Another Startup, Gaming Platform Company PlayerScale! being one of them) and might be planning to make good use of them under the Yahoo! banner. Yahoo also shared details on how it plans to Yahoo Gives Details On How It Plans To Recycle Old Usernames Securely securely. The company also promised us about Yahoo Promises Not To Screw Up Tumblr After Acquisition! after acquisition.

    In coming months, we will see that the Facebook and Google login buttons will be removed from all the pages across Yahoo apps. We don't have the details about the dates for this roll out, but we will keep you updated on this one. Till then, let us know what do you think about your favorite Yahoo apps and this move in comments below.
