OpenID Tips

You are welcome to use a mock identity that does not refer in any way to your personal identity. OpenID is merely used as an authentication token, to simplify registration and account management. Please note that, if you share texts with the public, your OpenID (and nothing else) will be displayed to indicate your ownership.

Factotum may automatically request non-essential attributes from your OpenID provider, such as email and timezone. These details do not yet affect Factotum's own features, but they are requested and stored for when they do become useful. Your OpenID provider should provide you with the option to deny the attribute request, or should make it easy to exclude these attributes entirely.

MyOpenID is recommended as an OpenID provider, as it is very simple and the resulting OpenID URL is permanent and portable. With any portable URL, even unrelated Factotum instances would have a common concept of your identity, which will be important when instances can federate to share your texts. You provide only the personal details you want to provide, so you can remain completely private while using MyOpenID and therefore Factotum.
