The end of MSN Passport?

December 12th, 2005 by Zack Whittaker

Some information passed to me via email earlier on, suggests that within the first half of 2006, MSN Passport may be completly removed, replacing it a new version of “something” which will handle everyone’s current Passport details. At the moment, it is unconfirmed and cannot be verified yet, but I will certainly keep on top of this and find out as soon as I can.

I think by the time that Windows Live Mail (formerly Hotmail) is released, the new Passport-style-engine will be ready to use, however this is totally unconfirmed. Only a year or so ago, Passport 11 was released of which is at it is now; new interface, new Account Settings, many more options etc.

    I do hope it is removed for good… It brings nothing but problems, especially if you want to login using two differents accounts to a website which uses .Net Passport… 🙁

    I Agree with the 2 different account at the same time. I loathe how its tied in with messenger some times.
    I bet the new system wont let you do that though andre 😛

    Remember folks 😉 it’s only an unconfirmed report – but as soon as I get more info. from my contact at MSFT I’ll definately let you lot know. All I know, is that this new system is “being thoroughly thought through” (th th th!!) and “may or may not be implimented for certain customers” – might only apply to MSN Premium customers… but then again, you actually have to login to Passport before you access the premium stuff… who knows! 🙂
