Accidentally created account with Google account

Hi there,

I did something dumb - as I was signing up for the developer portal I accidentally clicked through using my signed in Google account system. I wanted to create a new account via an email.

 

Is there a way I can clease/delete this account and start again? I do want to use this email address, just not through Google's sign in account system (so I can keep seperate strong passwords.)

 

Thanks,

 

Chris

Hi @PrimeChris,

 

You can actually create a new account using the same email address (and as a tip, I believe you can do the Gmail trick of adding + in the email - so for instance, if your email was primechris@gmail, you could create an account with primechris+viveport@gmail. Gmail recognizes both as your email.)

 

The only thing I'd suggest for your own sanity is to give yourself a different username here on the forums. That way when you login with the new account hopefully you'll be able to remember that instead of accidentally logging in via Google, which is easily done.

Useful to know!

 

That said, is there a way of purging this account from the records on this site and starting again? That's what I want to do.

 

Thanks,

Unfortunately, there isn't at the present time. :(

I'm also in the same situation where I created my account OAuth, and would like to change it. I tried signing up using the same email address as mentioned above, but it tells me the address is already associated with an HTC account.

Are there any other options?
