An alternative way to login

We’ve added the ability to log in using a dedicated username and password. If you’ve previously set up your account through Google, Yahoo, or Facebook, you can also set a custom username and password under the profile screen. This way, if these sites have technical problems (I have seen the Yahoo login service have significant downtime on several occasions), you will have an alternative way to log into cronometer.com.

For users that don’t want to use a third party to manage their identity, they can now also create accounts on cronometer.com in the traditional fashion, without needing an OpenId or OAuth provider.

  • Where can I find out how to use this feature? I just realized that when I ask a question on the forum, my gmail address comes up for all to see.

  • Trying to set up new account. Asks for email and password. I put in a password and it says Login failed. How do I set up my own password as a brand new user? I just bought the app 5 minutes ago??

    • Terri, it sounds like you’re on the login screen trying to log in but haven’t made your account yet. Tap the ‘Create New Account’ to make your account first.
