ABOUT DIGITAL ID

Leave your passport at home

A digital ID is a safe way to prove your age and identity using your phone. It takes just minutes to set up with an ID document and a photo – then you’re verified for life. 

So no more worrying about where your passport is to get into the latest movie – the only thing you’ll be leaving behind is that last-minute panic. 

Digital ID is now accepted at cinemas, Post Office branches and 12,000 convenience stores across the UK.

HOW IT WORKS

Create your reusable digital ID at home

Use your digital ID at the cinema

Simply show your ‘Age card’ when you’re at the cinema, and they’ll check the hologram and the QR code to prove it’s valid.
