2. Logging in to a website using OpenID

CrowdID enables you to log in to a website using your OpenID. The login process depends upon the following:

  • Have you logged in to CrowdID already during this browser session?
  • Have you previously added the website to your list of always-approved sites?
  • Does the website you are visiting require additional profile information?

Steps in the login process:

  1. Find the OpenID login page or section on the website you want to visit.
  2. Enter your OpenID and click the login button.
  3. If prompted, log in to CrowdID. (Required if you have not already logged in during this browser session.)
  4. If prompted, instruct CrowdID to allow the website login. (Required if you have not previously added the website to your list of always-approved sites.)
  5. If prompted, supply additional profile information. (Required if the website you are visiting wants more information.)

The login process can be very simple: just the first two steps above, provided that you have already logged in to CrowdID this session and have already added the website to your list of always-approved sites.
