What is an identity verification service?

When you’re using digital services, you need to be sure that your privacy is being protected and your data is secure. Government departments providing services online need to know it’s you (not someone pretending to be you), and to ensure your information is safe.

GOV.UK Verify uses identity verification from Experian to stop someone pretending to be you and help prevent identity theft.
