Introducing WordPress.com Connect
Today, we’re announcing a new feature for developers called WordPress.com Connect, a secure and easy way for millions of WordPress.com users to log in to your website or app.
For WordPress.com users
Using the same log-in credentials you use for WordPress.com, you’ll now be able to sign in to third party sites that integrate with WordPress.com Connect. From your WordPress.com dashboard, you can easily control which apps have access to your data and remove access to those you no longer use.
By integrating with WordPress.com Connect, you can make it safe and secure for millions of WordPress.com users to “connect” their WordPress.com accounts and profile information to your website.
Millions of users: By adding WordPress.com Connect, you’ll become part of a large family that makes it easy for WordPress.com users to explore new services.
Compatible with your existing sign-in system: WordPress.com Connect can be used on its own or as a complementary sign-in option to your existing registration system. Once a user connects, you’ll get access to their profile information, which you can use in your own app.
Trusted relationship: Allow users to sign-in with the same credentials they use every day on WordPress.com. This takes the pain out of having to remember and manage a new log-in for another service.
