[edit] How to login with Open Id

OpenId allows you to use an already existing account (e.g. from Google or Yahoo) to log into WebProtege. The first time you log in with an OpenID account into WebProtege, you need to associate the OpenId account with the WebProtege account. At any later time, you will be able to simply login in with your OpenId account.

Note. No private information about your external account (passwords or email addresses) is held or even accessed by WebProtege. The validation of your account is all done by the external provider, just as it is when normally accessing their site. WebProtege currently supports logins from providers like Google, Yahoo, AOL, Flickr, MySpace, etc.

Removing your Open Id account in WebProtege will not delete your Yahoo, Google or any other accounts you hold with other parties.
