OpenID is an identity system that utilizes the authorization and authentication mechanisms of OAuth 2.0. This system allows you to use an existing account to sign in to multiple websites, without needing to create new passwords.
With OpenID, your password is only shared with your identity provider, and that provider then confirms your identity to the websites you visit. So you don’t need to worry about an unauthorized or insecure website compromising your identity.
The following featured factors will express how our advanced OAuth and OpenID solutions are sculpted for you.
Many of us use identical password for multiple websites. If any security compromise occurs to any websites you use, your passwords of the multiple sites will be hacked easily. OpenID does not compromise with security.
You can use a single, existing account to sign in to the thousands of websites without creating a new user account or password. It is a safer and easier way to log in to new sites and reduce security risks.
OpenID is not controlled by any service or website provider, so that you can limit the personal information which is shared with the websites that accept OpenID, and multiple OpenID’s can be used for different websites or purposes.
This will add additional protection and improves control over your online identity.
On most of the websites, they will be asking for an extended, repetitive amount of information to use their application or services.
To avoid this lengthy process OpenID accelerates by allowing you to sign in to the websites in just one click. Since your basic profile information (Name, DOB, location etc) can be stored through your OpenID you can easily fill out the registration pages.
This helps to accelerate the signup process and help you to spend more time engaging with a website.
