If you’ve signed in recently, you might’ve noticed even more additions to our sign in options. We have rolled out support for the OpenID standard, which means you can now use your existing Google or Yahoo account, or any OpenID provider of your choosing. This includes all of Google’s offerings, such as Google+, Gmail, Google Apps, and Google Education accounts. Using any of these services to sign in to scrible means you no longer have to juggle yet another set of account credentials. The same goes for using a Yahoo account, or any generic OpenID provider. To start the process, just click the button of your favorite service and you’ll be taken to that site to sign and and authorize scrible.
The scrible service requires an email, first name, and last name. If we can’t get these from the service you’re signing in through, you’ll have to fill them in.
If you’ve already created a scrible account using your Google or Yahoo email, you can still use the new sign in feature. When you choose what other service to sign in with, if we already have an account registered to that email, we will ask you once to verify that you are the owner of that account.
You will have to enter your scrible password for the account as a one time (and last time) authentication step. After that, all you’ll have to do is click on the service of your choice and you’ll be signed in to scrible automatically (as long as you’re already signed in on that service, anyway).
