I’ve been a longtime supporter of OpenID but I will admit that it’s not as easy to use as it should be. There are far too many hoops to jump thru and too many clicks to use your OpenID account instead of creating yet another new one. Identity Crisis covers OpenID in more depth if you want more.

ClickPass plans to change the game and will make our lives much easier when it comes to our online profiles, logins and passwords. The key to their success is the much needed concept of one-click access which they do very well thus far. Here are the services that already offer ClickPass access.

Remember, they are new and the list of sites that will support ClickPass will continue to grow rapidly so be prepared to see this logo everywhere you go:

Here’s how easy it is now to join new sites with ClickPass. Let’s say I wanted to join Disqus so I go to their site: www.disqus.com and see their sign in/create account screen as we do on all sites.

Since I am new and want to join I click on Sign up now like we do everywhere else. However, here is where the game changes forever, folks!
You will notice the usual account name creation fields but take a look at the bottom of the screen and you will see the new ClickPass Enter logo with the OpenID logo next to it.
Click on that instead of filling out anything.

You will then see this screen which will be filled out for you by the kind folks at ClickPass who kind of know what you will use already but you can change it if you want to or if it is taken already.
Click the Sign up now button and that’s it. Bada Bing! Bada Boom! New account!
The other thing that is unique and impressive about ClickPass is the home page to your account there. It becomes your grand central station for all your accounts and sites!
Here’s what it looks like:

I believe this is something everyone is going to use in the near-future. Why not get on board now?
