My original solution seems to not be as useful any more because they have changed the page. I have it at the end of the post just for reference New Solution 2014-08-08 Goto https://www.google.com/settings Sign in with your account If you have a google+ account then you should have links for: Add photo; Edit profile; and View profile. If you copy the ...

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.

This is a little complicated. First there is the "Google OpenID URL" or https://www.google.com/accounts/o8/id. This is useful when signing up or logging in as it will redirect to the proper URL. You can also use your Google+ profile URL. Go to https://plus.google.com and click "profile". You will get a URL like https://plus.google.com/...

Note: In order to perform this in the New Google Apps dashboard you'll need to: Login to Google Apps Control Panel as an admin Select Security Advanced Settings Federated Login using OpenID Check "Allow users to sign in to third part websites using OpenID" Save changes

You can "nickname" your email using plus-sign addressing (plus-sign suffixing). So, for instance you can sign up using these emails: me+facebook@example.net me+twitter@example.net me+forumx@example.net And they will all be delivered to me@example.net, providing that you are using GMail. This will allow you to keep one username and password, in your case ...

You are absolutely right that this can be confusing sometimes. In case of Uber it is especially weird since the Google search result for 'Uber app login' shows Sign In. Connect with Facebook. or use email. Email. Password. Remember Me. Sign In. Forgot Password. Don't have an account? Sign Up. and the Uber page itself does not offer this option. However ...

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 ...

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 ...

It seems like you have answered your own question. Ultimately, openID is unlike OAuth(think twitter) in that to log into remote sites you will have to enter credentials at the openID website to unlock your other account. Nothing you do on the openID site will really unlink the account because the OTHER site is associated with the openID site, rather than ...

Google has cancelled OpenID URL logins, unfortunately, according to the Google One Support representative I spoke to today. (They provided chat ID 7-0404000030383 for future reference, though I assume only myself and authorized Google folks can access it.) So none of the schemes provided in previous answers here (via your Google Profile, Google Plus, etc) ...

Seems like facebook pulled out linked accounts quite some time back.

You don't have an explicit "OpenID credential". OpenID is a standard for authentication; the whole point of it is that you have an account from some provider, and they authenticate you for other sites. It's not that a Google account comes with some OpenID certificate; the Google account is the OpenID account.

Github's never had openID authentication, so your only option is to create an account.

The Trello help site lists the following steps: Once you've ensured there's not already an account for john@newcompany.com, use the following steps: Log out of Trello Log in to Trello using your john@oldcompany.com account. Create a password for this account at https://trello.com/your/account (note the password, you'll need it later) Log ...

Are they seriously saying they're going to follow people and post tweets using my account without my intervention? The scope of the authorization is that should you authorize, they can tweet, follow, and update your profile. Note that it's they can, not that they will. Twitter's authorization scope allows for read-only, read+write, read+write+send dm This ...

Let's just start with Twitter for the site that you mentioned weheartit.com If you don't how that login is provided. The site(weheartit.com) had created a twitter application at http://dev.twitter.com and made the app with read , write permissions. (You don't wanna get into the coding part unless you're a programmer). It is the same with Facebook, Google+ ...

SourceForge is attempting to phase out OpenID logins in favor of social logins, according to their support forum. For now, you can append openid to the login page, so it looks like https://sourceforge.net/account/login.php?openid.

This is not possible on Wordpress.com hosting. The "plugin" optionality is highly limited and curated on Wordpress.com - so to get a wider breadth of functionality, an upgrade to self-hosted WP is needed.

Ok, so here is what was going on. The application in question was using Google's OpenId API for authentication. Google implements something called "directed identity" and basically what that does is returns a different OpenId for every domain that is requesting authentication. That is understandable but how does that explain the issue I was seeing? Well, ...

I once closed or disabled my Google+ and next time I wanted to log in to Stackexchange I got a weird message about missing Google+ and it wanted me to activate it again. So if you close your Google+ you will probably not be allowed to use OpenID until you activate it again. At least that's what happened to me. This was a while ago so Google might have ...

Signing into a third-party service with your Google account usually does give Google services access to activity on that account. This is useful to the end user mostly on social services by allowing you to easily share activity on Google+. By default, your posted activity in apps you've signed into with Google is visible to everyone in your circles on G+. ...

Twitter API doesn't return the email address when you login using that, so no, they won't get the email address.

The OpenID Foundation has lots of information. Many common CMS platforms, like WordPress and Magento, have their own plugins already built. If you just want to use Google, you visit their Federated Login for Google Account Users page. For just Facebook, visit Facebook Login for Developers.

Facebook is an OpenID Consumer. You can use identities from other OpenID providers like Google email to log in to Facebook Facebook is not an OpenID Provider. You cannot use Facebook identity to log in to sites that consume OpenID Basically Facebook exposes OAuth, not OpenID.
