The GOV.UK Verify scheme is a way of proving who you are in order to access certain GOV.UK services online (for example for HMRC tax services, the DVLA, Universal Credit, and DBS checks).
During the process of verifying your identity with Digidentity, you will be asked to do the following:
- create an account using your email address
- set up security for the account (a password and two-factor authentication)
- provide personal details
- verify documents (such as a passport, driving licence, or a fixed mobile phone contract)
Completing the above provides the GOV.UK service you wish to access with assurance that it is you who is accessing your personal information and not someone else doing this in your place.
For more information, please see the following GOV.UK page about the GOV.UK Verify scheme:
Once you have successfully completed the verification process, you will be able to use your Digidentity account to access any government service available online with GOV.UK Verify.
