Use Your Google Account as an OpenID

Written by Amit Agarwal on Apr 9, 2008

You can now login to any website that supports OpenID using your very own Google Account.

To create a custom OpenID URL with your Google Account username, go to and login using your Google credentials. You will be assigned an OpenID sign-on that looks something like this: where is the email address associated with your Google Account.

Google’s own Blogger platform also uses OpenID for comments. The OpenID system for Google Accounts has been implemented using the new Google App Engine.
