ID.me’s verification process requires collecting sensitive pieces of information, like your Social Security number (SSN) or a photo of a document. ID.me verifies the identities of millions of people, and our primary goal is to make sure that you-are-you so that you can receive services from our partners.
The information we ask for helps us prevent duplication, impersonation, and deception. It makes sure that your account can never be duplicated—whether accidentally by you or in a malicious attempt by someone pretending to be you. Information you provide is secured and encrypted, and is used only to facilitate verification and prevent fraud.
