Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I was always using my Google Open ID account to get to stack overflow, but since I have to use 3rd party internet access and would prefer not to store google cookies on those machines.

I thought it would be a good idea to create stackoverflow registration and use that in less secure environments, in case cookie got stolen I would not get Google account compromised (no offence to stack).

I can complete registration, then get confirmation email, then confirm it. When I confirm registration I get to Registration successful page, but when I try to log in using stack option, I get this.

enter image description here

I can go through registration process multiple times, get multiple confirmation emails.
One thing I am doing that might be 'out of ordinary' I am registering on chrome on laptop, but confirming on my phone.

@LIUFA can you describe exactly what you did please? Did it work by signing up on your laptop and confirming on your mobile? – m0sa Mar 28 '14 at 15:35
Yes I registered using laptop, then confirmed email on my mobile. After that I was able to log in using stack exchange using laptop, what previously was producing screenshot above. – Matas Vaitkevicius Mar 28 '14 at 15:37
