I got an email this morning that myOpenID is ending Feb 2014. How anyone else received this? Is it real?

If so, what login do I use for stackexchange/stackoverflow? Is there a way to migrate/transfer into another login so I don't use all of my reputation points?

Yes, it is real.

myOpenId is indeed coming to an end. You need to use any other open ID provider (Facebook, Yahoo, Google or even the Stack Exchange one). These are all linked in the login page.

You can add another Open Id provider by going to your account and clicking on the "my logins" link:

my logins

The popup has a link to add logins.

    Awesome, thanks! I just added a stackexchange openid account. Will it continue using my username (4thSpace)? I did type that in as the name part.

  • @4thSpace - that won't change. It is just a name associated with the login, not your user name on the site.
