With OpenID, you don’t have to sign up and create a new account for each site that supports OpenID – you can just use the identity you already have. OpenID lets you use a web address (URL) that you control to sign in on other sites. An OpenID is a URL. An example OpenID URL would be ‘http://bob.myopenid.com/’, and when asked to sign in to an OpenID-enabled site I would type “http://bob.myopenid.com/” into the sign in box. You enter your OpenID on the login page of any site that supports OpenID (look for the OpenID logo ), authenticate with your OpenID provider and surf on.
