ID.me verifies the identities of millions of people across 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 or a photo of your government ID. When someone is requesting high-value access, like to personal information or restricted permissions, the verification process requires more stringent methods due to the increased 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 strictly used for verification and fraud prevention purposes. All information you provide 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.
