This is a feature I’m particularly excited about… Especially since we all had to reset our passwords, sometimes it can be easier to utilize the Associated Accounts feature.
Note: If you want to use Two-Factor Authentication, you cannot use Associated Accounts, however, you could have 2FA enabled on Google or Discord, negating the need for 2FA on the forums.
Head into your user preferences:
Scroll down to the “Associated Accounts” section, and chose either Google or Discord:
Your browser will re-direct to your chosen service. Sign in, or if you are already signed in, click “Authorize” or “Continue”
You should then be re-directed back to the forums, and you’re good to go! Also, if you signed up for the forums with a Gmail account, or the same email linked to Discord, you should be able to utilize the “Login” function, which will take you through the steps to confirm your identity, and connect your account.
