OpenID and I got too many of them.

Most of the service providers ( e.g. social service provider such as Google,Yahoo,Microsoft) support OpenID. And those who don’t, are either trying to support it or eventually support it due to its wide acceptance.

For those who want to know what is OpenID? check out video below…

The basic motive behind OpenID was to eliminate the need for multiple usernames across different websites, simplifying your online experience. As most of the users already have user ids with different service providers, we will eventually end up having too many of OpenID(s) pertaining to single user.

Currently most of the service providers either don’t have facility to disable OpenID mechanism or if it is there then it is not accessible that easily. The point is if some service converts their user ids to support OpenID then they should be providing mechanism to disable OpenID  on individual user id basis. Advantage being that user will eventually has option to retain kind of OpenID from service provider he desires.

What’s your opinion on this?
