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

When I look at my logins, the dialog box shows that I am using two of them: Stack Exchange and Facebook. I am just using Stack Exchange. Why Facebook is also shown as login?


I have tried removing the Facebook login using the "remove" link, logging out from, and logging in back. Still, I get Facebook listed as one of the logins.

Stupid question: you didn't "accidentally" log in via Facebook? – Bart Jul 29 '13 at 13:52
No, I have always used Stack Exchange since the last time I had problems with OpenID servers. As you can see, all the times I login with Stack Exchange, it shows as if I used Facebook too, when I only use Stack Exchange. – kiamlaluno Jul 29 '13 at 13:54
Weird. (Almost as weird as the downvote) I have no clue if those somehow can become connected. What happens if you removed it and try again? – Bart Jul 29 '13 at 13:55
I tried, but it doesn't change anything. Facebook is shown as one of the logins, even if I am only using Stack Exchange. – kiamlaluno Jul 29 '13 at 14:02
Facebook sticks. Once you logged in one time, it's there forever or at least that's what happened to me and I was too lazy to report it properly. I'm pretty sure you did choose to log in via Facebook one time, maybe by mistake and you don't even remember. After that, the "used ... ago" is always synchronized no matter what you do or how you're logged in. – Shadow Wizard Jul 29 '13 at 14:28
By the way, are you auto logged in to Facebook? If so, try logging out then remove it from your logins and see what happens. – Shadow Wizard Jul 29 '13 at 14:29
I'm assuming you don't mind your email addresses being displayed here? – Andrew Barber Jul 29 '13 at 14:32
@ShaWizDowArd The email I use to log in on is not even that. I tried logging out from Facebook, removed that login from my logins, logging out, and logging in back. Facebook is still shown between my logins. – kiamlaluno Jul 29 '13 at 18:17
