Yahoo has embraced the OpenID open technology. The Yahoo! OpenID (beta) service lets you take your account beyond Yahoo!. Plus, the free Yahoo! Sign-In Seal will help protect you from password theft, also known as phishing. Get rid of password scams with personalised sign-in seals.

One can use Yahoo! account on various websites. To know how to make use of this service, go to YDN - Yahoo OpenID.

Yahoo! will continue to devote resources to helping to improve the OpenID user experience and to educating its users. In addition, Yahoo! intends to expand its support of OpenID by adopting other elements of the program as the service evolves.
