Using your OpenID to access your OfficeBooks account

Through our development process, we planned to use Microsoft's LiveID to authenticate users. It has worked well for us.  However, signals from Microsoft with respect to support for OpenID, or the future of LiveID in general are unclear.  Microsoft remains a "sustaining corporate member" of the OpenID project, so we have high hopes that, eventually, LiveID will join the OpenID fold. 

We are working to accept OpenID logins and expect to be able to support OpenID shortly.

The OpenID project is broadly supported.  You probably already have login credentials from one of several OpenID providers.  These include Google, Yahoo, Facebook, and Flikr.

For more information on the OpenID project and its benefits, see the OpenID Foundation website.
