Web sign-in is signing in to websites using your personal web address (e.g. not using an e-mail address as the identity). Web sign-in supersedes OpenID.


Main article: Why web sign-in

Web sign-in is much simpler to use and implement than previous methods of signing in with your own domain like OpenID.

Using your own domain is safer than a 3rd party email service, and simpler than email on your own domain.

See Why web sign-in for more reasons why you should use it.
