OneID is a relatively new web service that helps its users easily sign into various web services. The aim behind the application is to reduce the many accounts Internet users often create on numerous websites. New websites are being made live every day and many of them require you to create an account with them. When you start doing that for every website you like, you end up having made countless accounts, and remembering the usernames and passwords of all these accounts is a challenge, to say the least.
There are of course websites that let you sign into them using your social networking account but sharing your Facebook information with a website you just discovered is perhaps not the wisest thing to do. All of this is solved by the service called OneID.
The service is partnering up with an increasing number of websites so that they incorporate within themselves a new way to let you sign into sites. You start by creating an account on OneID by providing your name and email address. The next step is simply to click on the activation link that is emailed to you. This authorizes your current machine / device / browser that you are using. Repeating this step for your smart phones and other devices authorizes them too.
From then on, you can click on the OneID sign in button on any website from an authorized device and you will be swiftly signed in without entering any passwords. The same applies to form filling too – clicking the OpenID button will quickly populate form fields with your information. Currently OneID is supported on many websites and their number is constantly increasing.
