Does anybody know if the forum software changed?

I'm no longer able to sign-in using Google (Gmail) SSO?

Is this a bug?
Yes, we upgraded from XenForo 1, which is End Of Life to the newer XenForo 2.1.

The Google, Twitter and Facebook integration was disabled due to privacy reason, but IIRC that was already done quite some time ago?

Is this a bug?

Hmm, AFAICT, the assumption was that no such SSO user were present, but that is obviously not the case. I'll try to see if I can find out how many users are affected by this.
Yup, I definitely was on Google authentication - to be honest, I found it super convenient. Ah well.

The privacy reasons - was that something to do with GDPR? Or something else?
