Ideas

We want your OpenID Ideas! Think you’ve come up with a way to improve OpenID? Recognize a good idea when you see one? We want to hear from you!

My idea is ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. You need a test login to verify an OpenID (such as from Yahoo) works

    If a person establishes an OpenID from a provider, it's hard to know if it is working. Finding sites that use OpenID is not trivial.

          • Providers should allow others providers OpenID to be used on their sites

            As an example, I've registered with google gmail, so I have an OpenId account from google. Let say I want a Yahoo email account, and I want to use my OpenId from gmail, well I don't see any option for that from yahoo.

            Some providers give the option to use existing OpenID but hidden in very small print. Competition I guess.

            All these defeat the simplicity mention by openid in the first place.

            • The ability to add avatars

              The ability to add custom avatars for different IDs to further customize OpenID.

              • Why not translate openid.net for hundreds of languages?

                The OpenId.net, only in English, not is soooo open. To have a real global range it's need to be translated for many others languages.

                • Two way othentication system

                  Open Id is a great concept and I like to use it in day to day life but security is a critical issue here. I think password is not enough to protection We need two way authentication system which is free to everyone and easy to deploy in servers.

                  For that We can create a software that we need to install it to the USB flash drive and whenever we need to login we have to use that USB drive which having a software which will authenticate the process Its like a debit card that we using in ATM where…

                      • Do NOT "anchor" Feedback button to view. Use a regular page button so that it moves w/the page!

                        Having that FEEDBACK button moving independently of the page is the same thing as a pop-up ad and just as annoying, Please put the feedback button in the regular part of the page. We are already working on browser plugins/extensions the will block all these new style pop-ups and the initial feedback to them is that people really like the idea of being able to prevent these and the "roll-over" style javascript popups. Even though these aren't advertisements, the pop-ups and "view anchored" windows interfere with peoples use and enjoyments of a web page just like pop-ups do.

                        • I already have an account with a site, there should be a standard way to attach my openID to login

                          this may be entirely up to individual sites,

                          but perhaps there is an approach that could be suggested,

                          for example, in case my idea is not clear:

                          I have a livejournal and a blogger account.
                          I have just discovered openID and want to use it.

                          I want one ID so decide to use my bloggerID

                          If I sign in to Livejournal with that I get a new account,
                          sites should be encouraged to attach openIDs to existing accounts,
                          or even multiple open IDs to an account.

                          I have 5 openIDs, how do I remember which one I used on different…

                              • Provide an automatic validation service

                                My OpenID server is accepted by some Websites but not by others. You should provide an automatic validation tool that tests Websites that use OpenID as well as OpenID servers (providers) for correctness.

                                • Alternative login format in the form username@domain.com

                                  Rather than requiring the user to input a very long URL (or in my case copy and paste my address), OpenID could allow for usernames in the form:

                                  username@domain.com

                                  The OpenID relying party would look up an XRDS document at http://domain.com/openid.xml to find out how to translate that format into a normal OpenID formatted username.

                                  • "Do I have an OpenID?" link

                                    I'd like to see a "Do I have an OpenID" link or tool as a prominent option on the landing page. While your second main option for "everyone" tells me I might have an OpenID and not know it, when I click that link it tells me how to USE my OpenID, but not how to find out if I have one. If there is a link like this somewhere, it wasn't prominent/obvious enough for me to find easily.

                                      • Logout from openid provider discovery link service

                                        We need a discovery service to retrieve the logout URL for a specific openid provider so we can offer it to the client after he log out from our application/website . Basically a short message like "If you want to also logout from Google click here ". Currently only few individual OpenID providers offer different URLs for logout to which the user can be redirected. But there is no discovery service and you have to hard-code these links .
                                        Google: https://www.google.com/accounts/Logout
                                        Yahoo: https://login.yahoo.com/config/login?logout=1

                                        • Combination of IDs.

                                          Before I heard about OpenID, I allready had multiple IDs for sites:
                                          yahoo - mail and fantasy sports
                                          google -- android, mail, blogger
                                          Trillian (includes AIM, GTalk, YMessenger)
                                          Hotmail (Live Games, MSN Msg, Email)
                                          Blogger
                                          Facebook
                                          Photobucket
                                          Exchange Email
                                          and so on.
                                          I like the concept of the open ID, but what happens when over time, I already have amassed the ids for the sites. It really doesn't help because now, when I click on make OpenID, I get a different url from each site. my.yahoo.com/username, google.com/username and so on.
                                          The concept of an openid is good if your a…
