If you do not want to log in to the app using your Facebook or Google accounts, you can use a PBS account.  A PBS account is a PBS-specific account that is used to log on to various PBS products such as our app. The information you provide is private and is not shared with anyone. Once you create a PBS account, you can log in using that email address and password each time you use the PBS app. It is completely separate from Facebook and Google.
