    Hi everyone!

    Today is a big day here in the OnePlus team as we have just enabled your OnePlus Account, and your forum account has already been migrated!

    OnePlus Account is going to be the centralized login system for all our future services. This means that in the future you will already have an account for everything, from our online store to promotion campaigns and our support system. So as a side note, you might want to get your account setup before we launch our phone. ;)

    Since everything is going to be centralized it also means that changes to your account data such as email, password, etc has to be made through the account management panel. The links in the forum have already been updated to point to the correct URLs so simply use the normal links and everything should work.

    Your new centralized OnePlus Account allows us to provide you a more elegant service whenever you interact with any OnePlus service and to more easily implement new account security features such as two factor authentication. Before we would have had to implement it for each individual part of our infrastructure.

    For the fellow IT geeks here the login process is based around the latest OpenID standard which opens up a lot of future possibilities and means the process has been vetted by industry experts already.

    Security wise your credentials are quite safe with us, we use industry standard bcrypt one-way encryption and force a secure HTTP connection on all visits to the account management panel. Likewise, HTTPs is now also available when browsing the forum, should you prefer that.

    Finally here in OnePlus we hope that this will help simplify your future OnePlus experience. If you have any suggestions or questions feel free to post them and we'll get back to you. :D

    Technically it's still text, just one-way encrypted using best industry practices. :D

    Would like to add my name, but getting an error: The username may only contain letters, numbers, and dashes.
    Jakub has only letters...
    EDIT: I get it also if I only choose Switzerland as a country etc. can't upload any pics, getting this error.

    If you guys see some of the features and designs we're currently working on for the account system, I think you'd be pretty excited. :)

    That's really great news! Having multiple accounts for forum/market/support is awful, even if most of the companies do so!
    Amazing as always guys, this afternoon I'll set everything up ;)

    Show them to us, then :D

    Hi Jakub, cannot replicate this error in the account system. Could you be more specific about where you try to edit your name?

    Quick question, would it be possible to link all of our accounts and data that we have on our android to this one centralized account so that it would automatically restore all data, similar to what Google already does, but much more comprehensive (e-mail account settings, Pandora log in, etc. with a new phone/factory reset)? I realize that there are already ways of doing this but it should happen automatically and I feel like this has been long overdue in the smartphone market.

    If i write my first name with an accent "Grégory" i will get the error "Whoops, looks like something got wrong", and the same if i try to upload a new profile picture, but fortunatly i already have one. :)

    Edit, now my first name with accent works fine :)

    I hate having multiple accounts for the same company.

    It's like "oh, want to use our store? Sign up! Forums? Become a forum member so sign up! Buying our phone? Easy, sign up and get your phone!"

    Awesome guys, looking forward to all of this :)
