At one point many years ago, Facebook login made sense to me. There have been enough changes that it doesn't anymore, at least to me.

How do I switch to having a username/password while keeping the rest of my account intact?

I don't think this is a duplicate, though it probably seems so from the title. I'd like to be able to add enough to my account to use the simple username/password prompt. There doesn't seem to be a way to activate that in the current website, unless I'm missing something.

  • Thank you, @Kendra. I'm still waiting on the email step, but that looks like exactly what I want. I never would have figured that out without that link. Commented Jan 25, 2018 at 19:16
