I’m pleased to announce that the OpenStore now has an option to login with GitHub. Because you don’t need to have an Ubuntu login to download apps from the OpenStore we felt it was a good idea to implement alternative login options for managing your apps. GitHub was a natural choice as much of the code for the OpenStore and all of the code for UBports in on GitHub. This allows us to easily accept logins where many developers already are.

If you have already logged in with your Ubuntu login you can still login with GitHub. This will only work if you’ve opted to share you email address with OpenStore as we will use the email address to match you account between Ubuntu and GitHub.

If you have any problems loging in with either please let us know in our Telegram group.
