Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Did you use same Gmail account (in Data Explorer) which have you added in your login? – hims056 Apr 26 '13 at 7:29
It auto-logged me into the following account ' jon.doe11019'. I did not see any page to enter my credentials. – Seagull Apr 26 '13 at 7:32

I would have preferred it if I was auto-logged in as Romulus or at least be prompted to enter my credentials? Can anyone else reproduce this? – Seagull Apr 26 '13 at 7:34
@Romulus Please see the links in the comments above. – Bart Apr 26 '13 at 7:35
@hims056: I always log in with just one Google account and no other way. – Seagull Apr 26 '13 at 7:36

I think as mentioned by Bart the problem is "Data Explorer's login mechanism is not linked to the Stack Exchange Network, because Data Explorer is open-source and the Network site code is not." – Seagull Apr 26 '13 at 7:38
Should I delete the question? – Seagull Apr 26 '13 at 7:38
@Romulus - Nope. Duplicate question should be closed not deleted (if the question is well described). – hims056 Apr 26 '13 at 7:39
