IMDb allows to sign up with Amazon, Facebook and Google.
But in existing accounts, you can only connect it with Facebook.

Please implement the other options too. I would like to be able to always login with Google (and in the iOS apps as well).

It turns out, IMDb does link an existing account to Google if their e-mail addresses match when you sign in with Google.

However, the above suggestions still apply.

Hi David, if you log out of your account and visit this link https://secure.imdb.com/register-imdb/login you will see the option to log in with options you request. Please let us know if this is not what you are requesting to do.

Yes, but those will create a new account if the e-mail addresses don't match, right? Which is why I'm suggesting to add an option to connect an existing IMDb account to Google and Amazon when you're already logged in on IMDb.

Also, I don't see "Sign in with Google" on your iOS app.

I'd really love to see a built-in tool to associate accounts. My IMDb account (that I've had for 10 years) cannot be associated with my Google account because I already logged in with via Google once. It show this error when I attempt to change main IMDb email to my Gmail:

E-mail address is already registered to another account

How else can I get around this to log into IMDb via Google?

Have you tried deleting your new IMDb account (associated with your Google) before signing in?
