I currently login using my Google Plus account.
Google Plus is shutting down in April 2019, and the APIs are being shut down possibly sooner than that.
What will happen to my Obsidian Portal login after G+ is gone? How will I log in?
This is actually something I was literally just about to put into my weekly update post. That said, I can go ahead and put it here also:
The shutdown of the Google+ social network draws ever closer, which means we need to start taking steps now to connect with any users who may be impacted here on Obsidian Portal by this action. As we know from the Google+ API Shutdown developers page, all of the Google+ APIs will be shut down on March 7th 2019. However, it’s important to note that they also mention this is going to be a progressive shutdown, and thus users will begin to see intermittent failures as early as January 28th, 2019.
This means that within the next week, it’s entirely possible that your authentication to Obsidian Portal via the Google+ social sign in option will begin experiencing difficulties (and obviously will cease functioning altogether in due time). If you are using this method to sign in, you are going to want to get ahead of the game now. You will need to do one of the following:

If I may offer a suggestion since your team will need to work on the login screen, maybe have this as the default...
Instead of how it is currently when you go to http://www.obsidianportal.com/login...
I know personally will be using the standard OP login since I'm not on Twitter or Facebook.
I'd support this. Would just need to add the "Create new account" link next to "Forgot your password".
I second Krothos's suggestion

Just wanted to note that switching to a username/password login was quick & painless, so thanks for the instructions!
In case anyone missed it, Google+ login has now been replaced by Google login.
