How do you easily prove that you are you when you are online? How do you prevent large organizations from collecting and selling your personal data without your consent? At ID.me, we have built the ID.me Wallet and the ID.me Identity Gateway to make online transactions more efficient, trusted, and transparent. We are building a model for digital identity where you, not businesses, are in control of your personal information.
Making Digital Identity Personal
More and more of your everyday interactions are moving to the digital world. In the physical world, it's easy for you to take out a driver's license or ID card to get a discount or special access. In the digital world, your identity does not become less important -- it just becomes harder to prove. That's where we come in.
Welcome to Your Digital Wallet
ID.me Wallet empowers you to store all of your digital ID cards so that you can easily prove your identity online via a single login. With ID.me Wallet, proving that you are you is as easy on websites as pulling an ID card out of your physical wallet is during in-person transactions. Plus, we give you a simple online dashboard so you can monitor activity associated with your ID.me Wallet and manage your IDs.
