The acct URI scheme protocol was published by the Internet Engineers Task Force. The purpose of the scheme is to identify, rather than interact, with user accounts hosted by a service provider.[1] This scheme differs from the DNS name which specifies the service provider.[2]

The “acct” URI was intended to be the single URI scheme that would return information /about/ a person (or possibly a thing) that holds an account at a given domain.[3]
