      not quite sure why this item is shown as Planned, but the converse (probably even more useful in the short-term at least) of being able to use FB/Google/Twitter to login to ORCID is currently showing as 'postponed' http://support.orcid.org/forums/175591-orcid-ideas-forum/suggestions/5010131-openid-login Worth linking the two items somehow, and aiming to keep their status in sync. Hopefully OpenID integration will be done in both directions, right?

        We’d like to update on this suggestion:

        It is unlikely that we will set the default email visibility to allow trusted parties to view it. However, we will soon be working on a feature to allow clients to request permission to access the individual’s email address, even if that address is normally hidden. You can follow the progress on this on our Current Development Trello board at:
        https://trello.com/c/W9rPpV4v/2501

        Warm regards,
        ORCID Community Team

        This is a great suggestion, but one that needs review before we can act on it. As ORCID is an international undertaking we have to comply with privacy regulations in numerous countries, some of which affect how we are able to share email address, even with trusted parties.

        I completely agree with this - conventionally researchers share their email address through their publications and through institutional addressbooks, so some level of default accessibility of email info (either public, or to members for lookup purposes) makes sense in terms of discoverability.
