About Digital ID
The future-proof form of ID
Give your customers a convenient and privacy-friendly way to prove who they are to your organisation with the Yoti app. They only need to verify their identity details once with Yoti to create a reusable digital ID they can use to instantly access your services.
How it works
Users add a government-issued ID document and take a biometric selfie to create their reusable digital ID. Once verified, they simply scan a QR code or tap a button to share only the details your organisation needs.
The Yoti app
A safe place for your customers' details
Verified personal details
Any information a person adds to their Yoti app can be verified by us so you know they’re genuine. As well as information extracted from a government-approved ID document, we can also verify details they manually add like contact details. All these details are securely encrypted and stored in their Yoti app where only they can access them.
Using the same technology, organisations can issue credentials to a user’s Yoti app which can be shared digitally or shown on screen.
Core verification process
How we verify your customers
Our robust verification process uses automated processes, supported by a team of verification experts, to ensure only genuine users can create a digital ID.
Our anti-spoofing liveness test gives us confidence that we’ve captured an image of a real person in front of a camera, not a spoof through an automated bot, mask or photo.
Accurate data extraction
We use OCR technology, NFC chip reading and our expert security team to accurately extract data from thousands of ID document types from over 200 countries and territories.
Document authenticity check
Our hybrid approach uses both automatic and manual processes to check the security features of each unique ID document to make sure it’s genuine.
Biometric face match
We compare the scan of the user’s face captured during liveness to their ID document photo to confirm that the ID document belongs to the user.
A radical new approach to storing and protecting data
Our systems are architected using PKI technology, which means a user’s data can only be accessed by the user.

A new era of identity services in the UK
We’ve joined forces with Post Office to make identity services more accessible for people across the UK -– starting with the Post Office EasyID app. Harnessing the same robust technology as Yoti Digital ID, customers can use either app to verify themselves with your organisation.
