A working group of the OpenID Foundation
accountchooser.com is shutting down
The original charter was to explore and standardize new user interface experiences for the login process. The working group developed accountchooser.com, a service that would help users login by storing their different email accounts on the local device and then using those entries to bootstrap the login process at different web sites.
Applications that want to continue using this feature can host and run it themselves by downloading the source code.

OpenID Connect is one example of a protocol that can be used to communicate with an Identity Provider. The OpenID Connect Working Group has created a suite of specifications that lay on top of the OAuth 2.0 specification, providing identity services for RESTful API platforms. An Intellectual Property agreement is required to contribute to this group.
