How do third-party sign-in options work?

The first time you sign in to NPR using Facebook or Google, basic information such as your name and email address will be automatically saved to NPR databases. When you sign in, you’ll see a message that explains what information will be shared with NPR.

Twitter and Disqus are no longer available as third-party sign in options.

If you would like to maintain the history you built with NPR using Twitter or Disqus sign in, you can:
 
  • Sign in using a Facebook account that uses the same email address as you used before;
  • Sign in using a Google account that uses the same email address as you used before;
  • Sign in using the same email address as you used before.
If you’re not sure which address you used, search your email inboxes for messages that include "help.npr.org”, and use the address that has received matching messages.

Your information will be maintained across each sign in method, as long as they all use the same email address.
