Yoti is a global digital identity platform and free consumer app that gives you a simple, fast and secure way of proving who you are online and in person.
Founded in 2014, Yoti began a mission to become the world’s trusted identity platform. We’re committed to doing things differently to other tech companies, like promising to never mine or sell your data. Yoti is designed so that we couldn’t even if we wanted to.
The Yoti app combines your government-issued ID document with your biometrics to create a secure, verified digital identity that you control using your phone. With a verified Yoti, you can:
- Prove your age online to access age-restricted content
- Prove your age at supermarket self-checkouts to purchase age-restricted goods
- Check the details of people you meet online
- Save time and money proving your identity to businesses, without showing or photocopying paper documents
- Securely login to websites using biometrics instead of passwords
Once you’ve created your Yoti, proving your age or identity takes seconds. Whether you’re buying or selling something on a classified site, verifying someone you met on a dating app, proving your age to access age-restricted goods or content online, Yoti makes everyday life safer, simpler and faster.
Our latest technology, Yoti Age Scan, is a secure, anonymous age-checking service that accurately estimates a person’s age, by comparing an individual’s face to many thousands of other age verified faces. After the age is estimated the image is deleted. Yoti Age Scan always forgets a face.
We’re building Yoti around principles which are regulated by an independent Guardian Council to help us develop Yoti in the right way. We’re one of the UK’s founding B Corporations, which means that we are legally required to consider the impact of our decisions on our workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. B Corps focus on balancing purpose and profit, and using business as a force for good.
By staying on track to our principles and close collaboration with all of our stakeholders including businesses and governments, we can achieve our goal of putting people in control of their data and fixing the broken identity system.
