To complete your verification to access GOV.UK services with Digidentity, you will be asked to complete a number of steps:
1. Account setup
First you will need to create your Digidentity account. This requires you to create a personal set of login details (email address and password), confirm your email via a confirmation code sent to you and set up security codes via SMS or our app. After completing these initial steps, you will have created a secure account which only you will be able to access.
2. Personal details
Next you will need to add your personal details (name(s), gender, address(es) and date of birth). Once your personal details have been provided, they are checked against a trusted, GOV.UK-approved source. This source of information is taken from your personal credit history, which is then automatically checked to make sure your provided details match and that we can generate information proving who you are.
3. Prove your identity
Finally, you will need to verify your identity documents. During your registration, you'll be asked whether you can provide details of the following documents: a UK driving licence, a UK passport, up to two credit/debit cards, an O2 mobile contract, a UK biometric residence permit, and non-UK ID documents (passport, driving licence, national ID card). As you add these documents, they are verified via GOV.UK-approved verification sources.
Depending on the types of documents you have available, you will need to provide either two or three documents in total to complete your account. This may involve uploading a photo of a document using the Digidentity app. For more information, please see: What documents will I need to prove my identity?
Once you have provided the required information during registration, you will have a fully verified account. For more information on the services that you can access with a fully verified account, please see: What services can I access using Digidentity?
