What is the Personal Identity Page? Top Top  

Your Personal Identity Page is displayed when you enter your PIP URL (for example, jdoe.pip.verisignlabs.com) in the address bar of your browser or a visitor follows a link to your PIP URL. You can use this page to provide information about yourself, show a video, and include links to your profile pages at other Web sites such as MySpace, Facebook, and Flickr.

Note: At this time you can create only one Personal Identity Page, for your initial OpenID.

Links to Your Web Profiles Top Top  

Use the Links to Your Web Profiles section to display links to your account profiles for social networking and content hosting Web sites. The links appear on your Personal Identity Page in a carousel with a small static preview of your profile page. You can also add links to any other Web page that you or your Personal Identity Page visitors might find useful. You add, edit, and delete links at any time.
