Web sign-in

Web sign-in is a way to sign in to websites using your personal web address. Web sign-in supersedes OpenID.



Main article: Why web sign-in

Web sign-in is much simpler to use and implement than previous methods of signing in with your own domain like OpenID.

Using your own domain is safer than a 3rd party email service, and simpler than email on your own domain.

See Why web sign-in for more reasons why you should use it.


See and web-sign-in-protocol for a more detailed description of Web sign-in.
