Title: SIMPLIFIED CONFIGURATION OF COMPUTING DEVICES FOR USE WITH MULTIPLE NETWORK SERVICES
Abstract:
An account aggregation service receives account credentials for a first network service account and associates the credentials with a list of network service accounts. Access tokens for other network service accounts can also be obtained and stored with the list of accounts. The account aggregation service can utilize the access tokens to access the other network services on behalf of a user. The account aggregation service can also enable the configuration of a second or subsequent computing device by receiving the credentials for the first network service account. The account aggregation service can then utilize the account credentials to retrieve the associated list of accounts. The list of accounts can then be provided to the second or subsequent computing device. The second or subsequent computing device can access the other network service accounts via the account aggregation service.
