I have Stack Exchange account that was created using Facebook.

Now I use Windows Parental Controls to block sites (i.e. Facebook), and I can’t log into Stack Exchange.

There is an option in Stack Exchange to log in using an email.

But I can’t see in logged in user account in “Edit Profile & Settings” and “My Logins” and ”add more logins…” an option to add email. There are only more Facebook, Google+ like options.

How can I log in to Stack Exchange using email if my account was created by facebook?

If you click on the “add more logins…” then the way you could create an email only account is to simply create a Stack Exchange account which would be a local system (as far as Stack Exchange goes) account that is bound to your email and password.

Just login using Facebook, then add a Stack Exchange login using the email of your choice and you’re good to go!
