Update: Universal login is in place and considered "done". If you see anything weird, please submit new bug reports.


As y'all know, our current flavor of "global authentication" leaves a few things to be desired. It's flaky, requires a page refresh, etc. etc. Wouldn't it be nice if you could just sign in once and be automatically logged in across the network?

Good news, everyone!

We are ready to roll out Stage 1 of Project "Make Authentication Suck Less". It is live as of a few minutes ago.

What this means right now:

  1. When you log into any Q&A site on the stackexchange.com domain, you will be automatically logged into all other Q&A sites on the stackexchange.com domain + stackexchange.com itself.

  2. stackoverflow.com, superuser.com, and other Q&A sites with their own domains will still use the old flow.

  3. We are going to recognize you in some ways on sites where you don't have a profile. This is still a work in progress, but most notably you will see "join this community" in the top bar instead of "sign up" and "log in".

But I use multiple accounts! What do?

We aren't intending to break the ability to run multiple accounts. The same guidelines as before still apply — we don't officially support that, you might end up with an accidental automatic merge if you're not careful with your credentials, any interaction between the accounts is right out, and so on.

If you're already using different browsers or different browser profiles for your accounts, nothing will change for you. If you are somehow logged into multiple accounts in the same browser... I'm sorry to say, but that's a bug even for our current global auth setup. You will now only be able to log into one at a time, and you'll need to log out when you want to switch. (Or start using different browsers.)

What's next:

  • Remember the UI we tested a few months ago? It's coming back.
  • Stage 2: bring other domains into the fold (this is also live now)
  • Stage 3: make cross-domain experience smoother and support browsers that reject third-party cookies in all conditions (looking at you, Safari) - this is not currently feasible. Safari users and users who reject third-party cookies will need to sign in separately to every second-level domain (e.g. stackexchange.com, stackoverflow.com, etc).

If you see any issues…

Good luck, because you probably can't log in to report them here. =) But seriously, let us know via the contact form linked at the bottom of any page. If you are able to log in, report issues here on meta as normal.

So, in conclusion…

Brace yourselves, universal login is coming

    Beyond the "join this community" link, can you elaborate on "We are going to recognize you in some ways on sites where you don't have a profile."? – Monica Cellio Jul 6 '15 at 22:12
  • 47
    @MonicaCellio There's not much else to say right now, but there have been feature requests floating around along the lines of "make my inbox follow me around the network" that will be possible once this work is complete. Whether or not we're gonna do them (or something else) is still undecided. We are not going to create profiles on every site for users without their consent. – Adam Lear Jul 6 '15 at 22:12
  • 14
    Thanks. It sounded like you had more in mind for the immediate future. (In many ways I like the idea of the top bar following me around, so to speak, but I'd like something more obvious than the text of one link to tell me whether I'm actually a user, and logged in, on a site. Where should I leave that kind of feedback, since I suspect this isn't the right place?) Meanwhile, thanks for making cross-site stuff easier for us! – Monica Cellio Jul 6 '15 at 22:16

    @MonicaCellio For the moment, feel free to leave feedback as answers or comments here.

    @HackerKarma Yes... eventually. – Adam Lear Jul 6 '15 at 22:48

    And will logging out also log people out of the SE OpenID provider? Personally, I use Google, but for those using SE's internal OpenID, the fact that it's treated as internal in the UI (login form loads inline) but external in terms of logging out is confusing and probably a security flaw. – TRiG is Timothy Richard Green Jul 6 '15 at 22:51

    Is the implementation of this opensource, or been reviewed with an eye to security? There are many many things that could go wrong, and many things that very often do. Even with SEI's fantastic developers, it is likely that there are some security bugs - I wouldn't go try to hack on it without permission, but it is something that should be considered. – AviD Jul 9 '15 at 10:39

Has this been tested by someone who has two disparate accounts?

  • one account, email address A, used on sites B and C
  • second account, email address D, used on sites E and F only

Today I can click links or type addresses and am recognized as A on sites B and C and as D on sites E and F no problem. I can go back and forth between them in the same browser. There is talk that such accounts sometimes get automerged, but I've been doing this a long time and that hasn't happened. A good thing too, because I don't want to it to happen. My D account is separate for a reason and it would be a HUGE violation of my privacy (retrospectively) for posts from that account to be relabelled with my A account (this one.)

So, has this scenario been tested and shown to work the same way today's login process does?

  • 57
    We don't officially support multiple accounts, but we're also not going out of our way to break them. You are still welcome to run as many accounts as you want (so long as they don't interact - I know you know this, but I'm including this note for completeness' sake), but you will have to log out/log in when you want to switch between the two (or use two different browsers). Having said that... I'm trying to figure out how you logged into two different accounts at the same time given how current global auth works. :) Mind if I shoot you an email to discuss specifics? – Adam Lear Jul 7 '15 at 15:32

    Multiple accounts was working for me, one is an openid provider and the other is a stackexchange login, both login me in separately automatically. Other than using the same computer SO shouldn't know that they are in anyway linked. Wasn't that the whole point of openID - I don't want to trust a site with my details so they can track my other online activities? – Martin Beckett Jul 7 '15 at 23:18
  • 27
    Agreed. My main account can be tied to me real-world identity (by my own choice); where I to inquire about a sensitive matter on, say, Academia, The Workplace or Parenting, I would want another account. – Raphael Jul 8 '15 at 8:05
  • 9
    @AnnaLear Can't you have site-specific cookies that override the global one? Another idea would be to have one login, but several identities. Only staff (and maybe mods) would be able to tell two identities used the same login. Users would have to choose one identity per site they want to join. (So I could be Raphael on my "home site" Computer Science but AnonymousAngryGradStudent on Academia.) – Raphael Jul 8 '15 at 8:06
  • 7
    Yeah, this is borked. I use a different Google account for SE sites on some more "frivolous" topics. It used to work just great. Now my other account is recognized at those sites and it wants to log me in with this one. Not happy that I'm going to need to fire up a different browser. – ale Jul 9 '15 at 11:26

    Having multiple profiles in Chrome has worked well for my Google accounts (one for personal, one for business), and I don't have to suffer through the loss of cookies in incognito mode. Logging in to both accounts from a single profile worked fine for gmail but had issues when I wanted to log into the Google Play Store and it insisted on using the primary (/u/0/) account. You end up with two browser windows -- same as incognito -- but everything works correctly. – fadden Jul 9 '15 at 17:28

    Just use Multifox or similar. This is the only real solution for the "multiple accounts" problem. We should stop demanding individual sites to support this workflow and start demanding better support on the browser side. – RomanSt Jul 20 '15 at 13:19

In the Drop Down it still asks to log in

In the Drop Down it still asks to log in

The announcement reminded me very soon about this request.

I hope it's the right time to consider it now - it would be great to see the inbox / achievements indicator in the top bar (on the places they are when you're logged in) along with the "join this community" link you've said will be added. I think it wouldn't be a trouble to implement it, supposing that this

We are going to recognize you in some ways on sites where you don't have a profile.

(as of rev 2015.7.13.3577 on meta, 2015.7.13.2722 elsewhere)

That's great! So, let's go to some site where I don't have an account (but actually I do have everywhere, so I had to delete one of the unused :D)

If you are on the main site, you can see:

But if you are on the per-site meta, you'll see the usual "sign up / log in":

Though it's possible to click "log in" which takes you to the main site login and then click "join this community", maybe I should be able to directly use the new "join" feature from the per-site meta too?

If I go to /users/logout on ELL, it says:

Clicking Log Out will clear our cookies and log you out of English Language Learners Stack Exchange on all devices.

Which is true, but it also logs me out just about everywhere else. Shouldn't it say so?

    Yes, it certainly should. I'll be updating logout copy tomorrow. – Adam Lear Jul 9 '15 at 1:28

    @AnnaLear I noticed it didn't yet - was this something that fell of the long list? :P – Tim Jul 14 '15 at 8:32

With stage 1 live here is a scenario that doesn't let you log in once logged out.

Repro steps in Chrome on Win7:

  1. clear all cookies/session storage
  2. goto meta.stackexchange.com
  3. click login (I use google)
  4. I'm logged in
  5. From the menu choose Log Out
  6. Click the Log Out button
  7. You're logged out
  8. click Login (I use google)
  9. I'm not logged in

I can iterate step 7 and 8 but I never get logged in. Only after pressing F5 I am able to login again.

One other thing I noticed which I'm not sure if this is related. This dev console shows:

POST https://meta.stackexchange.com/users/login/global/request 404 (not found)

whenever I try to login.

    Interesting, thank you. (This will be a fun afternoon... :)) – Adam Lear Jul 8 '15 at 20:35

SEDE seems to be logging me out every day (even though I've been on multiple stacks every day), and my SEDE account doesn't seemed to be linked to my other accounts at all.

After the recent issue with the CSS (or rather, lack thereof) for the new question close statistics tool on sites that don't yet have the new base CSS, and a similar issue with the new image uploader, I've got a request.

Please test this on sites that don't have the new base CSS, to ensure ye olden sites won't have issues with users logging in.

  • Yep yep, I'm on it. :) This page is designed to have its own styling, without site chrome at all, so it should be good, but it's been a few months since we ran it last, so I'll definitely be checking how it's holding up. – Adam Lear Jul 7 '15 at 15:53
  • @AnnaLear Thanks! – Keen Jul 7 '15 at 18:05

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but I tried to upvote the original post without having first clicked "join this community" and I got the usual "log in first" box, with options to Sign up via Google, Facebook, Stack Exchange, etc. However, it didn't have any option to "Join this community" like at the top of the site. Should that be added as an option?

I feel that would be a nice addition. I didn't notice the "Join this Community" link before I read @nicael's post.

When trying to upvote, etc. on a community to which I am not a member yet.

  • 1
    Yep, that's on the list. Thanks! – Adam Lear Jul 10 '15 at 16:50
  • Awesome, great work so far, I really like this new feature! So much easier. Keep up the good work with everything! ^_^ – SeanKendle Jul 10 '15 at 20:07

It will be better, but I think if you should make an option where users can give permission to auto login or global login in some Stack Exchange community, I mean, if you don't want to auto login in some Stack Exchange community then you can disable auto login for only that Stack Exchange community.

Logging out is now broken if you have accounts on multiple sites which are simultaneously logged in.

If I log out of one site, I need to log out of all Stack Exchange sites to have it actually be remembered.

Otherwise, every time I visit a site I have just logged out of it will automatically log me in. This meta post suggests a "log out everywhere" functionality but I don't know where it is. There are other meta posts talking about similar but different functionality.

I am not sure how I can successfully log out of a Stack Exchange site indefinitely (let alone all of them at once) with this new login change.

I am logged into numerous sites on the SE network currently.

Navigating to here, and clicking "log out":

enter image description here

Hitting "log out" then results in success:

enter image description here

However, immediately clicking "Questions" twice then logs me back in on The Workplace. If I navigate to another SE page, such as Meta.SE, it seems I only have to click Questions once.

It seems too that I am temporarily logged out of Meta as doing this has required me to refresh this page to edit (I got errors uploading images immediately after logging out on Workplace) but refreshing Meta.SE caused me to be logged into Meta.

I am using Google Chrome.

After logging out, I see a lot of Stack Exchange related cookies still (not sure what else to search for them):

enter image description here

enter image description here

enter image description here

I do not see the workplaceusr or meusr ones however.

enter image description here

  • Hmm, you should be getting logged out of all of them at once. There's no option to log out of just one site. Can you be more specific about your steps here and which sites are involved? – Adam Lear Jul 16 '15 at 17:05
  • @AnnaLear I added the steps I am following, sorry for making a bad bug report ;) – enderland Jul 16 '15 at 18:01
  • Do you have a "workplaceusr" cookie or "mseusr" cookie? – Adam Lear Jul 16 '15 at 18:22
  • @AnnaLear after logging out on Meta.StackExchange (my only open SE site in my Chrome at this point) I see a lot of SE cookies. I searched "meta" and saw a full listing of them. After logging out here I also see 4 cookies for workplace.stackexchange.com and 1 for meta.workplace.stackexchange. – enderland Jul 16 '15 at 18:51
  • What are their names? I'm looking for specific ones here. – Adam Lear Jul 16 '15 at 18:54
  • @AnnaLear neither of those two are here. I added images of some of the ones I still see, there may be other Stack Exchange cookies I did not think to search for or see. – enderland Jul 16 '15 at 19:10
  • What happens if you log out and then clear cookies for all SE domains? – Adam Lear Jul 16 '15 at 19:23

The code to detect the login status on other sites is flawed.

I'm currently logged in on Stackoverflow, This meta, CodeReview, AskUbuntu and many others.
Worth mentioning that this login was made over 2 months ago. Always the same session.

And today, I got a link to visit this:

Review+Edit Page

But, instead of the nice join this community button, I had the login and signup buttons.

If I go to a *.stackexchange.com website, I get this:

Anime screenshot

Nothing wrong there, the nice button is there.

Now, on StackApps:

Stackapps

And on MathOverflow:

MathOverflow

So, the detection code is broken only on 'external' websites.


Currently, to showcase this, I'm using Firefox 39.0 running on Windows 7x64 SP1.

Any other informations will be gladly provided.


Update!

As of today I can confirm it is working flawlessly! I can see the expected behaviour and everything is working as it should.

Thank you for fixing this!

    Yeah, this is a side-effect of how we rolled this out... and how stage 2 works. Right now, we only log you into the domains you already have a profile on. My goal is to convince Geoff Dalgas to send auth requests to all custom domains, although even if/when we do that, there will still be a chance of failure. We're going to try and make this as fool-proof as possible before we call this "done", though. – Adam Lear Jul 14 '15 at 0:36
  • @AnnaLear I though this was addressed already. According to the list, this is already solved. – Ismael Miguel Jul 14 '15 at 1:28
  • 2
    It is if you explicitly log in (as opposed to having been "upgraded" into the new system) and if none of the requests fail and you have accounts on all custom domains we have. So, sort of, but not entirely. – Adam Lear Jul 14 '15 at 2:15
  • 2
    @AnnaLear That should be added to the question. I had no idea about that tiny detail. And most don't too, probably. – Ismael Miguel Jul 14 '15 at 2:22

Considering the privacy of the users, I think the current situation is better, even if it requires more effort from the users. If you want to login on a site, you should do it explicitly. If not, it must not happen automatically, when you have logged into to other site.

So, it maybe a bad news for privacy advocates.

    To be clear: this doesn't create a user for you, it will only do universal login you in if you have one. We have no plans at all to auto-create users, we agree that's terribad. – Nick Craver Jul 7 '15 at 11:46
  • I understand. Consider the situation that I want to be logged in abc.stackexchange.com, but I don't want to be logged in xyz.stackexchange.com. If I want, I can login on my will. Login should be tak place upon explicit request of the user. – Ho1 Jul 7 '15 at 14:35
  • 3
    That's... not exactly how it works right now. It should (at the present) automatically log you in, but then you have to refresh the page. In the future, even that would be simpler. – hichris123 Jul 7 '15 at 14:37
  • 2
    As the post says: "When you log into any Q&A site on the stackexchange.com domain, you will be automatically logged into all other Q&A sites on the stackexchange.com domain + stackexchange.com itself". So, if I want to login to abc.stackexchange.com, I can not avoid logging into other subdomains of this domain. There should be local authentication, and global authentication. One that logs into the stackexchange.com should be different from the one that logs into abc.stackexchange.com. If this is what is going to happen, I appreciate that. – Ho1 Jul 7 '15 at 14:39

    @Ho1 "So, if I want to login to abc.stackexchange.com, I can not avoid logging into other subdomains of this domain" That is correct, and how things have been for a while now. – Kevin B Jul 7 '15 at 14:41

    @KevinB Are you sure? Cookies are set for specific subdomains, and not the top level domain. Right now, I am logged into meta.stackexchange.com but I am not in apple.stackexchange.com (which I also have an account). And I appreciate this behaviour. If I'm wrong please correct me. – Ho1 Jul 7 '15 at 14:50

    @KevinB When I have an account on site A and logged out there on a previous visit, I wouldn't want to be logged in automatically when I go there again just because I'm logged in on site B. In other words: I wouldn't want a global auto-log-in. – TehMacDawg Jul 7 '15 at 15:14

    @AnthonyGrist I just tested that, and no, I'm not automatically logged back in on a site where I logged out before. — If this were to happen, it would be a huge change as it would practically be the elimination of user-controlled site-wise log-in/out… Could you test it yourself? I'm not sure if this might be the Safari thing, or because I'm using one of the third-party ID options for login. – TehMacDawg Jul 8 '15 at 15:29
  • @AnthonyGrist OK, the current state: If I'm logged in specifically on the top domain 'stackexchange.com', I automatically get logged in on any subdomain I go if I have an account there, even when I had previously logged out there. But if I'm not logged in on 'stackexchange.com', I do not get logged in on that subdomain even if I am logged in on another subdomain. — The rationale behind this principle isn't very clear to me as I'm never on 'stackexchange.com' and have always perceived all SE domains as separate communities on the same level rather than in a hierarchy. – TehMacDawg Jul 8 '15 at 20:21
  • 1
    +sigh+ Scrap that, I'm now auto-logged in everywhere I have an account, if I log in to just one domain. – TehMacDawg Jul 8 '15 at 23:27
  • Previously, I wasn't auto-logged-in to other sites when I had third-party cookies disabled. Not sure if that is still the case. – Matthew Read Jul 17 '15 at 18:21

There is no option to create a whole new account (instead of linking your current network profile) to a new site.

Join community takes me to the right page (when I am logged in on other sites), but when I click cancel, there is no way to create a new account using another email address, or log in with an existing other email address.

Does this change also affect the Stack Exchange Android app's login functionality?

  • No, it does not. Mobile apps authentication is completely separate. – Adam Lear Jul 16 '15 at 17:02

Your new system doesn’t work at all for the first trilogy, I mean the older system worked with sites which are not astackexchange.com subdomain, I need to log on each of them manually : The current site : This is the first time I’m happy that ᴀrea 51 is not concerned by a change, because the older system allowed auto‑log back when logged off on all sites :

  • What browser are you using? – Adam Lear Aug 4 '15 at 15:03
  • @AnnaLear : ɪᴇ Opera presto ꜰꜰ and ɢɢ Chrome, so I don’t think it is relevant. – user2284570 Aug 4 '15 at 15:06
  • Are you still having issues? It appears you have active sessions on all sites. Just visit another trilogy site and you should still be logged in. – Geoff Dalgas Aug 4 '15 at 16:38
  • @GeoffDalgas I also use the mobile app on android. But yes I still have the problem on web browsers. relogin never worked with the new system outside area 51. I could never get logged in automatically on the orginal trilogy. – user2284570 Aug 4 '15 at 16:47
  • @GeoffDalgas : And yes, I’m not logged in on the trilogy with the current computer. – user2284570 Aug 4 '15 at 19:08
  • I tested login on Opera version 12.02 and it works. You will no longer see the dropdown after login, you should just be automatically logged in to all sites when you log in to one. – Geoff Dalgas Aug 4 '15 at 21:55
  • @GeoffDalgas : And for me, I still have the same problem. referer and JavaScript are enabled. Sorry about the delay for answering. – user2284570 Aug 18 '15 at 11:33
