Good news everyone! We’ve brought back Facebook connection for your login convenience!

If you had a Facebook connected account before migration please follow these steps:

1. Make sure the email address on your forum account is the same email address the Facebook account is registered with. To check this please go here https://www.hrvforum.com/account/account-details

2. Select Forgot Password for your account, on the login screen.

3. Go through password reset process and login to the site using EMAIL and password. It is important that you don’t log in with your username for this step.

4. Go to Account Settings > Connected accounts, located here https://www.hrvforum.com/account/connected-accounts/ and check 'Disassociate Facebook account'

5. From the same page, click associate with Facebook account again and type in the Facebook password.

Login with Facebook will now work again.

Thank you for your continued feedback and use of the site! We hope these steps make your use of the site more convenient for you in the future!

Thank you for enabling this feature for those who find it convenient. Let me offer a piece of advice for those of you considering this. Facebook has slowly been capturing your logins by offering to be the sole login you ever want or need. That is a great concept, and many apps have now been created to offer this type of functionality. They are single purpose applications in that is their only function. They focus on password security, and offer the capability to create one master password, and then automatically keep track of all your passwords. The biggest differences in applications like this and Facebook are: 1) this is all they do and they do it VERY well; 2) they have built their business based on security; 3) they aren't monetizing knowing where you log in; 4) they haven't had security breaches or they would be out of business. If you use Facebook as your central password you are putting all your faith in them that they won't be compromised again, and that they are only selling your web history for things that you want them to do. IMHO, if you use Facebook for your log ins, you should ONLY do it for sites that don't contain any personally identifiable information (PII) or any financial information.

Great advice for users to avoid security breach risks.
