When I first created my IMDb account a few months ago, I chose to sign in with Google, just for simplicity. I recently bought an iPhone and downloaded the IMDb app for it. The problem is that when I try to sign in while using the app, there is no "sign in with Google" option, so I can't sign in.

I tried creating a new IMDb account that wasn't linked to my Google account, but it wouldn't let me because I used the same email address. I then tried to delete the IMDb account that was linked with Google, but it wouldn't let me, probably because it wasn't a stand-alone account that could be deleted.

After seeing what I've already tried, is there something I'm missing? I would be open to any solution that allows me to sign in to the app.

At this time, Google accounts are not supported as a login method on the iPhone/iPad app. But if you created an account on via your Google account, you can still log into the app by choosing the IMDb Account sign in method.

If you don't have/know your password:
Tap "I forgot my password" in the Existing Account screen (you may need to scroll down) or go to the IMDb website via a browser and use the 'Forgotten Password' option to reset it.

1) Go to:
2) Enter the email address associated with your Google account
3) You will receive an email with a link which will let you pick a new password

Once you have your password, log into the app by selecting the 'IMDb account' option and enter the email address associated with your Google account as the username, and the password that you have just created.

Hey! I had the same problem, and I was just going to post.
But this amazing method actually completely solved my issue.

I can now login with my old account (Google account) on my iPhone app and see all my saved stuff.

Thanks for the great solution.
