On most sites you can use your Google profile link when logging in to OpenID. E.g. http://www.google.com/profiles/your.name.here Before Google profile OpenID support you had to use https://www.google.com/accounts/o8/id You can read more about it at Jeff Atwood blog post: Google Offers Named OpenIDs. However, it appears, that at ask.cakephp.org Google ...

They can't, as you only send your password to your OpenID provider. However, there is a risk that a site could send you to a fake provider that collects your password, so it is important to double-check that the URI you're on is correct before entering your password.

None of the other answers worked for me. However, what did was following the below steps. NOTE: you should be able to skip some of the steps and go straight to the privacy link. Log into your account in Google Click on the profile down arrow Click the Privacy Link On the right will be the link to your Google Open ID URL Mine was ...

If you mean you want to use your Google Account to login to sites using OpenID (like the Stack Exchange network) even if you don't have Google+ then you need to use the following URI: https://www.google.com/accounts/o8/id If you are already signed in Google will recognise your account and perform the necessary actions. If you aren't already signed in to ...

There's a lot of other questions answering this. Searching for openid would have helped you to find them easily. Anyway, the google openid is www.google.com/accounts/o8/id An advice, remove the plain text reference of your email address so that it won't be picked up by robots crawling the web.

The whole point of open ID is that it takes you to a safe website that asks for your password (your open ID provider), which then sends only the information you allow it to the site requesting the information (e.g. email address, name, etc.). For a detailed explanation of how it works, check out Wikipedia's article on what happens during the login process.

The process is simple. Go to The Google Account Security Page, logging in to Google if necessary. Beside Authorizing applications and sites click Edit Click Revoke Access for the site you wish to remove access for your OpenID

Word press has an openid plugin. I am not sure if it works with the other login services. This plugin can do also other services like Quickly register and login users with their existing accounts from Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo!, LinkedIn, Windows Live, MySpace, AOL or OpenID

OpenID is a Single Sign On service for the web You have one login/password which can be used across all sites which support it. This includes all StackExchange sites. From OpenID Explained: An OpenID is a way of identifying yourself no matter which web site you visit. It's like a driver's license for the entire Internet. But, it's even more than that ...

When you log in via OpenID, some information is given by the OpenID provider to the consumer website. The actual login part, where you type in your password, is done on the providers web page, so the consumer website doesn't know your login details. However, the OpenID provider will send to the consumer site, some of your profile details. Just what details ...

Is it all right to have multiple OpenID accounts, from different providers? Yes. Is there any advantage or disadvantage to doing so? Backup, I suppose. If a site ( such as Stack Exchange) supports an additional OpenID, if your primary OpenID goes down you can always rely on the alternating openID. This approach of course relies upon the target ...

Did you wait for it to recognize the authentication? There should be something similar at the bottom of the browser that says Waiting for google.com ... Then Waiting for accounts.google.com ...

According to Google, you can sign in with multiple Gmail accounts using the multiple sign in feature. This feature has been around since 2010. You should be able to use your old account to maintain your Google+ and Youtube accounts, while using a new gmail email address if desired. Hope this helps!

Although it's primarily a layer of obfuscation ("security through obscurity is no security at all", etc.), http://blog.woobling.org/2009/05/your-openid-sucks.html tells you how to simply set up your own OpenID delegation through a URL of your choice. While this will not prevent someone who cracks your actual OpenID provider from making use of your ...

To make changing OpenID providers easy: set up some delegate on a domain you own. You then don't have to change all your accounts, but only need to change your own HTML. On the Stack Overflow blog, Using Your Own URL as Your OpenID describes this, but does not include the 2.0 syntax. Like for myopenid.com, for both version 1 and 2: <link ...

It is also important to consider the alternative. It is well known that people re-use account names and passwords on most sites. Imagine an evil site that encourages people to create accounts. A user creates an account of john_doe/xyzzy. The evil site can now go check to see if those credentials work on amazon.com, ebay.com etc. I use google as my OpenId ...

Convert to a paid domain and move the domain. Once you own it and control it, turn that domain into your own OpenID provider. Purchase the Chi.mp Domain Jeff Atwood's "Using Your Own URL as Your OpenID"

There may be a way, but being a new feature it isn't documented. Judging from their similar FAQ topic on how to merge with a Facebook account, it wouldn't be pretty (or ideal - comments, message board posts and a bunch of other stuff are lost). Your best bet will be to ask at the IMDB Help Desk unless a new FAQ gets posted soon.

As far as Google+ is concerned it seems to be possible to use an alternate email account to sign into your Google+ account. From the description there it seems that you may even be able to replace your primary email address. So basically, after you update your the name on the Google+ account either add the new Gmail account as an alternate or replace the ...

It seems like this was enabled last year. Here is the blog-post: http://googlecode.blogspot.com/2009/07/google-apps-openid-identity-hub-for.html Note: The Federated Login Service is disabled by default for Google Apps Premier and Education Editions. The domain admin can enable it from the Control Panel at ...

To use the Google OpenID with Google Apps (in my case, a gmail business package, where my ID is NOT @gmail.com) it was REALLY hidden. If you visit your account page ( eg https://www.google.com/settings/account ) and view-source, search for "https://profiles.google.com/" There you will find the long mysterious number that is the URL for your OpenID.

On this Google Account Settings page (if the link doesn't work, you get there via this link) you can deauthorize IMDB from accessing your Google data so stopping you to log on with your account. Although this method blocks access from IMDB to Google, I think the reference to your account in IMDB will persist. There should be an option in their account ...

This is going to depend totally on the website and how they have implemented their registration process and whether they recognise OpenID or not. If they do recognise OpenID it should be possible to link your OpenID to your account - but unless you have a specific site in mind that's all I can say at the moment. As for the site you mention, I've not checked ...

As far as I know, Facebook allows you to log in to it using another provider's OpenID account, but doesn't actually create an OpenID account for you to log in to other sites. Does that make sense? See this Facebook Developer Blog Post for some more information.

Use Cookie Zapper to delete cookies once you leave the tab. Alternatively, if you use a non-US version of Google you can disable cookies on that domain (e.g. using FireCookie), however you can't if you don't, as cookies are required on the domain used for OpenID.

For self-hosted WordPress or WordPress.com? (The former is really off-topic for this site.) Self-hosted, there is this plugin, which allows visitors to use OpenID to identify themselves to register, log in, and leave comments. For WordPress.com, you can use your blog as an OpenID provider for other sites. You can see the sites where you use this under ...

Ipernity uses OpenID. There are several that allow signing in with Facebook credentials (such as Photobucket). And, of course, everyone in the world has a Google account, so there is PicasaWeb.
