If you used Facebook or Google's registration buttons to create an account and would like to remove those accounts from The Atlantic, follow these instructions.
How do I do it?
If you'd like to change your account to a traditional email address and password login instead of using Facebook or Google, you'll need to contact us and let us know how you'd like us to help.
To expedite the request, find the "I'd like to unlink my social media from my account" option in Accounts or subscriptions > Creating an account or logging in. We'll be sure to get back to you quickly.
What will happen to my account?
Nothing to be worried about! Your account will stay intact. We'll send you an email where you can add a password to your account. Once you've done so, log in at any time with your new password and email address combination.
This change will also affect The Atlantic's iOS app. It is best, after this process, to sign out and sign back in with your new password to give the app a chance to catch up.
