Login issues

The Pineapple Lounge says:

Hi Flickr Forum!!

Hope you're all well?

Is anyone else having trouble sharing their login details, and the same credentials which you use to login just fine, not working for others?

This is really bugging us and we can't figure out why this would be - have tried testing with several different people. Clearing cache, changing password etc, nothing seems to work.

Any help would be much appreciated.


Thanks

Sharing login details with others sounds as a bad idea. Hopefully almost all other Flickr members will never do this, so they will not have your issue either.

Perhaps just as well, for obvious reasons.

Apart from that, from the paragraph # 9, Account Security, it appears that Flickr//SmugMug does not encourage sharing login data, or even prohibits it.

Even if you create an account for an organization or business, you are required to appoint *one* person who manages the account, instead of allowing everyone to willy nilly log in and make changes.
