.NET Passport overview

A .NET Passport provides you with personalized access to Passport-enabled services and Web sites by using your e-mail address. Passport implements a single sign-in service that allows you to create a single user name and password.

Once you have a Passport, you will have only one name and password to remember, and you will be able to use all .NET Passport-enabled services.

You can store information about yourself in your sign-in profile, so you will not have to retype it when you use .NET Passport-enabled services.

.NET Passport helps protect your information through the use of powerful encryption technology and comprehensive privacy practices, and you are always in control of the services that have access to your personal information, including your e-mail and mailing addresses, as described in the .NET Passport Privacy statement. .NET Passport also takes steps to help protect your privacy on public or shared computers.

You can obtain a passport through the .NET Passport Wizard in User Accounts.
