    We are currently using Google’s oAuth protocol to identify you when you login, along with Facebook, Twitter, Windows live and Evernote login options.

    We’ve opted to take the route of secure 3rd party oAuth login options for now, but we also realize there is a big demand for a dedicated “feedly login” option. This is something that will require more dev work, and we are looking at this for the longer term.

        Would use feedly if it had this

        Also, consider this netizen in the camp that you'd have to pay me a profit share, 50/50, of ALL the revenue you gain from my information and news interests that you share in this promiscuous relationship with Goo/FB/Twt/M$.

        As a computer power user I have no idea where the disconnect is between some service providers like Feedly.com, and the end users interested in their service. Grow some hair on your chest and start generating dedicated user accounts, children. Do not attempt to funnel my connection through some third party authenticator.

        You Fail!!!! bad product, and bad people, if we can't log in direct without running our news through the NS fucking A. Prick

        Too bad. I just discovered Feedly, and it really looked promising to me. But (like with every other service I use) I'm not willing to even try, if I'm forced to log in with a third-party account.

        I would like to use feedly but I don't want you on my Facebook

        We would have suggested Feedly to people wanting to read our feed. But they are mostly parents and teachers of disabled kids, and understandably won't accept being spied on. No option to login with just a username and password? You cannot be serious.

        I have closed my account with feedly until they allow me to simple sign up with username/email instead of through my email provider or facebook. It is 2015 and you are not Apple. You do not have the clout the abandon something that you do not like.

        Seems pretty callous to me that feedly refuses to simply store RSS feeds locally - that is a basic capability of the majority of RSS readers ever created. Perhaps the desire for monitization is driving feedly to require our 3rd personal accounts. You sheep can follow along but I've jumped the fence.

        Why should I pay Google every month to authorise Feedly?!

        Feedly is the only reason to keep my Google Apps account now and because I want to get rid of Google Apps, I am considering deleting my Feedly account along with it. I would like to know how I can access my feeds without changing anything on my Feedly account other than the method used to access Feedly. Authorisation via other services is not possible, that just creates a new Feedly account.

        This does not give me any confidence in you should I wish to upgrade.

        It seems inconceivable that Feedly would not let you just login with an email and password. Whoever made this design decision at Feedly should be fired for utter incompetence. There are tens of thousands of apps that make logging in with an email/password a simple process, so there is absolutely no excuse for such a moronic design. Really, people, WTF!!?? You have to be mentally impaired or an infant to let this happen. I am going to start looking for an alternative RSS reader because clearly the software people at Feedly are intent on driving away users.

        Feedly, you are in violation of your own terms and conditions by not providing this!

        2.Registration
        2.1Registering Your Account. In order to access certain features of the Company Properties you may be required to become a Registered User. For purposes of the Terms, a “Registered User” is a user of the Services (“User”) who has registered an account on the Website or App (“Account”), or has a valid account on the social networking service (“SNS”) through which the User has connected to the App (each such account, a “Third-Party Account”).

        The word "or" means there are alternatives. I wish to register using the first alternative. You have chosen not to make this available, thus, you are in violation of your own terms and conditions! Please comply. As someone who has developed web site software, I know that this takes more than "an hour" as one poster suggested, but given all the other great stuff you've accomplished, I'm sure your team is up to the task!

        Please make this happen! Its the one thing keeping me from using feedly.

        I created a dummy google account shared among my family just for feedly but i cant login using it on my phone. Any solution to login another google account on android now? Had stopped using it since last year. Any workaround is good to know.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  · 

        I too am not going to use this product through my google or facebook login. I really wonder if the owners of Feedly care though. After all, if the service is free, you are the product. The whole commercial point and goal of anything online that's free is to use and sell user data, surely. We should all accept and get wise to this.

        I can't use this service without a designated feebly login option. I do hope you will add this feature it the near future.

        Feedly's tie-in to Google's oAuth protocol exposes my Feedly activity to Google's information-gathering infrastructure - just review the 'passthrough' information that must be 'opened up' to Google in order to use Feedly. This compromises my individual privacy. Feedly should 'step up' take responsibility for its clients use of its application by providing its own user authentication functionality. This is not a complicated nor difficult problem - but the after-effect of a design decision made by Feedly prioritizing expediency over its clients...

        It's a 1 hour code modification. You just want to link to other services so you can data mine your subscribers. Fuck you and your app.

        I find it sad that you would alienate established users just to try something new.
