Clickpass : Login to sites with one password (openID)

Clickpass : Login to sites with one openID passwordClickpass is an application which makes OpenID easy to use and brings the benefits of single-sign-on to everyone. Over 60% of us use the same password on every site we visit. All of us have been locked out of somewhere at some time and every day we’re bombarded with emails enticing us to give away our credentials to would-be attackers.

Clickpass is built to solve that, to bring you the convenience of a single password but with the reassurance of a company whose sole job it is to look after you and your security. Over time you will see Clickpass on more and more sites. As that happens, you’ll start to forget the fear of forgetting which password you signed up with and experience instead the freedom to do what you want to do, when you want to do it.

WordPress plugin

The Clickpass WordPress Plugin lets you log into your wordpress admin pages using Clickpass. Once installed and setup you will be able to log in to your blog from your Clickpass account page or from your wordpress login page

Requirements : WordPress 2.1 or greater PHP 5 or greater
