Microsoft PassportMicrosoft Passport
is a "universal-login" service provided by Microsoft
that allows users to log in to many websites
using one account. Many of these websites include MS services such as Hotmail
, MSN Messenger
subscriptions, but there are also many outside companies affiliated with Microsoft that use it, such as Radio Shack
Users of Hotmail or MSN automatically have a Microsoft Passport that corresponds to their accounts there.
The Passport is in a work-as-they-go stage. Bugs, such as the one on May 8th, are still being uncovered.
