Digital identity

What is digital identity?

Digital identity checks are the new government-approved method to digitally verify the identity of a person.

For example, when you need to provide proof of identity, you can use your digital identity instead of meeting an interviewer in person, to check and copy your original (physical) identification documents.

Your certified digital identity allows you to prove who you are online for work and personal use.

Only IDSPs certified with the UK government’s digital identity and attributes trust framework can be used to complete digital identity verification.
