Telegraph to provide OpenID from February

Telegraph.co.uk is to become a provider of OpenID beginning at the end of February, the site’s community editor Shane Richmond reveals on his blog today.

The OpenID online standard, which allows users to log into multiple web sites using a single username and password, was also recently adopted by Yahoo!.

Explaining the move on his blogs, James Higgs, a developer who has been working with the Telegraph, writes: “Because of the trust in which Telegraph is held – as a major mainstream media brand – we believe that an OpenID from the Telegraph will have that extra feeling of familiarity and security to users of, shall I say, a certain age.”
