Doing things differently

The way we build our solutions is different to other tech companies. With Yoti, you are in full control of your data. Your personal details are encrypted into unreadable data that can only be unlocked by your Yoti app. Nobody else can access or decipher it, not even our staff.

We cannot mine and sell your data to third parties, or share any details without your approval. You’re in control to securely share specific details, never your whole identity.

Yoti leadership

Founders Robin and Duncan were at a Spartan Race in 2014, where 10,000 people were queueing to register with passports and driving licences. The process was long, outdated and a potential security risk, with people leaving valuable ID documents in a tent during the race. There was clearly a better way of checking who people were.

Robin, Duncan and Noel saw an opportunity to harness the advancements in biometric technology to develop a digital identity solution that could be used both online and in person.

Founded in 2014
