ClaimID : a fun, free and easy way to manage your online identity.
ClaimID is a fun, free and easy way to manage your online identity. With claimID, we provide you an OpenID you can use to log into OpenID-enabled sites without having to create a new account name and password. At the same time, you can use claimID to verify, track, classify, annotate, prioritize and share the information that is about you online, giving people a better picture of your online identity.
# What is OpenID?
OpenID is a very interesting new open identity protocol. Developed in an open source format, OpenID is designed to make your life easier by reducing the number of accounts and passwords you have to remember. Instead of creating a new account each time you sign up to a new site, you can simply log in with your OpenID (which is your claimID URL). Sure, it sounds a little complicated, but it is really easy! And not having to create new accounts/remember new passwords = awesome.
