What can you use the app for?

Clickpass allows users to access all of their important online accounts with a single password. The application only seems to work at the moment for WordPress, Plaxo and Hacker News accounts. The site focuses on a high level of security. Users are greeted by their image each time they log in. If the user does not see their image, then they know to check and make sure they are at the correct address. Clickpass also offers a WordPress plugin that lets the user access their blogs. Clickpass integrates seamlessly with websites that accept the user’s Open ID.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Clickpass was launched in March, 2008. It is a privately held company with its headquarters situated in CA, United States. Its efforts to simplify the use of OpenID soon came to recognition and so far the site has been well received. Peter Nixey and Immad Akhund are the two young founders of the service. Clickpass was acquired by Synthasite (currently known as Yola) in December 2008.

What are the differences to other apps?

The service offered by Clickpass is not unique, however that doesn’t mean the application is worthless. The interface is user friendly and the application would be useful when it works with more popular websites. The WordPress plugin is a nice bonus for bloggers.

Clickpass offers a simple, effective service that helps users manage their many online accounts. That being said, the accounts it monitors are generally available to all users for free.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Clickpass.com is intended specifically for users with numerous online accounts to manage. The application is easy to use and provides the user with a number of log in options. Users can remember one password and access many accounts rather than trying to recall many passwords. Unfortunately the app seems to work only for a few websites now.
