I have a login already using Facebook credentials. But I need another login on Stack Exchange itself. It's because I use my friend's Android device to access my account, and it does not let me in anyway...

I had been using it on the web using my laptop only, since my phone is a Windows Phone.

There is an option in the app for an SE username and password. But they are probably not as same as Facebook login.

How can I do it?

    Don't put the solution as part of the question. Please post this as a new answer, and don't add "SOLVED" to the title. Thanks. – ShaWiz Mar 9 '17 at 7:14

  • Oh right, this question is closed, sorry about that. Is your solution different than the one here? If so, how? – ShaWiz Mar 9 '17 at 9:46
  • @ShadowWizard it's similar, but, i already had an e-mail from facebook! so i need not add a new one as in the post you tagged. Also, I have a direct link to the recovery. Quite straight process (3 steps)!! – Prashanth Benny Mar 9 '17 at 10:08

    Well, if you think it is different enough you can add another answer in there. – ShaWiz Mar 9 '17 at 10:10

Not too difficult. Go to your profile and click on "Network Profile."

You should see something like this (personalized for you, obviously):

enter image description here

Click on "my logins."

At the bottom of the dialog, you should see "add more logins..."; click on it. Then click on "Log in with Stack Exchange" and create an account. Hope it helps!

    I think this does not work. Stack Exchange OpenID can't be used with other providers as far as I know. – ShaWiz Mar 6 '17 at 20:16
  • @ShadowWizard, hmm, you could be right. – anonymous2 Mar 6 '17 at 20:17
  • See the dupes. :-) – ShaWiz Mar 6 '17 at 20:18
  • @ShadowWizard, argh, there are always dupes on meta... ;) – anonymous2 Mar 6 '17 at 20:18
  • Yup, and I'm hunting for them... :D – ShaWiz Mar 6 '17 at 20:19
