McLEAN, Va. (PRWEB) February 05, 2019
ID.me, the next generation digital identity platform, today announced that it has surpassed 10 million users, doubling its user count in just over a year. The company achieved this milestone after federal government agencies, two top ten retailers, and a major American city integrated with ID.me’s shared login service. Those partners drove substantial new user growth and expanded the number of places where ID.me users may access services.
ID.me simplifies how individuals securely share their identity online. Like a digital driver’s license, once an individual has created an ID.me login and verified their identity, they may sign-in to any site that accepts ID.me and consent to the release of their verified identity without needing to create a new login and password or to re-verify their identity at that site. This user-centric approach to identity puts ID.me’s ten million plus users in full control of their own data and who has access to it based on their own security and privacy preferences.
After surpassing the 5 million user milestone in December 2017, ID.me added over twenty new business partners in the public sector, healthcare, automotive, travel, and retail sectors. The company expanded its total available offers by 200%. Additionally, ID.me became the first company in the United States to earn accreditation against the most rigorous federal standards for online authentication. As a result, ID.me is poised to grow even faster in 2019, particularly in the healthcare and public sector verticals with major new clients onboarding to the platform.
“The problem ID.me solves is simple. Your most portable logins, Facebook and Google, aren’t trusted. Consumers can’t, or won’t, use those logins with government agencies and healthcare. Your most trusted logins are typically with your bank, but those bank logins aren’t portable to other high-value applications like healthcare records or government websites. ID.me addresses that problem by providing a trusted and portable Single Sign On that more than ten million individuals use to access services ranging from online discounts at retailers, healthcare applications, and benefits at federal agencies,” said Blake Hall, Founder and CEO of ID.me. “We’ve only just begun. We’re focused on building additional partnerships in retail, government, and healthcare so we grow even faster in 2019 and put more people in control of their data.”
ID.me simplifies how individuals prove and share their identity online. ID.me's next-generation identity platform provides identity proofing, authentication, and group affiliation verification for organizations across sectors. ID.me’s technology meets the highest federal standards for online identity proofing, authentication, KYC / AML requirements and is approved as a NIST 800-63-3 IAL2 / AAL2 conformant Credential Service Provider by the Kantara Initiative.
ID.me is used by more than 10MM individuals and 350 partners, including healthcare organizations, federal and state government agencies, financial institutions, retailers, and nonprofits. For more information, visit http://www.ID.me.
