I first joined the StackExchange network by signing up on StackOverflow with my Google account.

Then I joined some other sites of this network, and I decided to stop using my Google account to login.

I want to have a proper StackExchange account in order to login even if I delete my Google account.

I already check my profile > my logins > add more logins > More logins options but you could not add a StackExchange login from there.

How do I create a StackExchange account that will link all the sites I already joined?

I finally found a workaround. I simply logged out, then I signed up, creating a StackExchange account and using the same e-mail as my Google account.

The StackExchange account has been successfully created, no conflict. My profile was intact, all my sites has been linked.

Moreover, but I don't really know why... my Google login also seems to have been removed in the operation.

  • It wasn't exactly removed; both logins essentially resolve to the same ID: your email address. If, for instance, you had a Facebook account associated with that same email, you could log in using that as well - it's in effect one credential that can be verified using multiple providers.

  • @Shog9 OK but I meant my Google login completely vanished from my logins list. Commented Apr 27, 2015 at 0:31
