We're on a mission to become the world's most trusted identity platform

Our solutions make it faster, simpler and safer to prove who you are to individuals and businesses, online and in person.

Prove Your Age

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.


Founded in 2014 by Robin Tombs, Duncan Francis and Noel Hayden.


200+ employees and growing! Check out our latest vacancies.


5 offices including a headquarters in central London and offices in India, North America, Australia and New Zealand.


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 The process was long, outdated and a potential security risk, with people leaving valuable ID documents in a tent during the race.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 growth and advancements in biometric technologies and increasing smartphone usage to develop a digital identity solution that could be used both online and in person. And hey presto, Yoti was born.
