ID.me verifies the identities of millions of people around the world. Our primary goal is to make sure that you are who you say you are, so that you can receive access to exclusive benefits or permissions from one of our partners.
Sometimes, our verification process requires collecting sensitive pieces of information, like your Social Security number (SSN) or a photo of your government ID. These requests are made when more stringent verification methods are needed to reduce the risk of fraud.
Your SSN also helps us make sure that your account can never be duplicated - whether accidentally by you or in a malicious attempt by someone pretending to be you. This information is used strictly for verification and fraud prevention purposes, and is secured and encrypted.
ID.me will never sell your information, share it without your consent, or use it for marketing or re-targeting purposes.
