ID4me is an internet service that enables its users to log in to many different internet services with one account. This is also known as "single sign on".
Unlike existing global single sign on solutions like the ones from Google or Facebook, ID4me does not track and analyze the internet surfing habits of its users. ID4me will make sure that the surfing habits stay secret.
Also, ID4me does not belong to an enterprise. It is an open standard that is maintained by a nonprofit organization. Anyone who wants to can participate. This way the users can chose freely between different ID4me providers and can also change the provider anytime.
If I don't want a software upgrade to KitKat for instance or any other new system on android, is all I need to do is go into the about device settings, then software update, then make sure that I have the Auto update un-ticked, and with it being un-ticked does this mean that it won't automatically start an upgrade process and that I will have an option to decline?
