Yoti

Your digital identity on your phone

Yoti is your digital identity on your phone. It helps you prove who you are to businesses and individuals, online and in person. Once the free app is downloaded, it takes 90 seconds to create your digital identity: take a selfie, add your mobile number, scan your ID with your phone, and enter a 5 digit PIN. Advanced data encryption techniques are used to prevent hacking attacks and fraud.

Take control of your personal data by choosing exactly what information you share and who you share it with.

I am sceptical about this because those asking for ID may not know about Yoti and therefore may not accept the ID as valid. I think a lot assurance is needed also because of the risks of identity theft if it's all contained in once service, that would Yoti a huge target for hackers.

Hi Ian,

Over the past year, we have been speaking to lots of businesses in different industries so that you will be able to use Yoti in as many places as possible. Upon launch, we'll make it clear which companies accept Yoti as ID. Don't forget, you don't need to rely on a business in order to confirm the identity of someone else - that is up to you and the other individual.

Protecting your personal data is a top priority for us, which is why the Yoti system has been developed with the highest levels of encryption and data security. We separate all of your information, such as your name and date of birth, encrypt each piece of data (which only you will be able to access), and then store the data in separate places. So, in the unlikely event that a hacker attacked our system and also managed to crack our encryption (experts estimate it would take the best computer in the world billions of years to do so...), they would not be able to see enough info to reveal your identity, protecting you from the risk of identity theft.
