In an effort to get you to return to that Yahoo ID from back in the day, Yahoo says it'll be phasing out the ability to log in through Google and Facebook accounts. The company says this will allow it to offer "the best personalized experience to everyone." Yahoo only started allowing these third-party logins in 2010 -- not that long ago. While the change has already happened on its Fantasy Sports service, Google and Facebook login buttons will eventually (no timeline was given) disappear from all Yahoo web properties, which includes the likes of Flickr and tumblr. Now, to remember the password for lostfan_1985.

Engadget’s parent company, Verizon, now owns Yahoo. Engadget remains editorially independent.
