As of now, almost all the websites have been using the same options to offer access to the users to its products. Removing it might just not help but there could be some other contingency plan that Yahoo must have cooked in their hood to replace if in case the removal of the options would fail.

The company also believes that its services are quite attractive enough to make Facebook and Google users switch to Yahoo products. Also the Yahoo IDs might make users more likely to use other Yahoo services. Recently, Yahoo has also cleared all the Yahoo usernames which was abandoned by the users.

One of the Yahoo representatives told The Verge that the new process, which now asks users to sign in with a Yahoo username, will allow the company to offer the best personalized experience to everyone.

Will the new move from Yahoo work? You can drop your opinions in the comment box below.
