Yoti is a digital identity company that makes it safer for people to prove who they are. We started by empowering people with a free, reusable digital ID app that minimises the data they share with businesses. We now provide verification solutions across the globe, spanning identity verification, age verification, eSigning and authentication. Whilst still maintaining our consumer focus, we have also built a suite of robust B2B tools for all things related to identity verification.
We’re committed to making the digital world safer for everyone. Our seven ethical principles guide us in everything we do and we’re held accountable by our Guardian Council. With an award-winning social purpose strategy, we’re always looking for new ways to explore what (digital) identity means across the globe. The journey isn’t one we’re making alone, but with the help of policy advisers, think tanks, researchers, humanitarian bodies and everyday people.

“We are delighted to partner with Post Office and Yoti to transform the way businesses verify their employees identity. This new approach is better for all stakeholders in the recruitment process. It’s faster, secure and the only information that is absolutely necessary needs to be shared by applicants during the Digital Identity Check process. We’ll be seamlessly integrating Digital Identity Checks into our Platform, so that they’re ready to use as soon as permitted.”
George Griffiths, Managing Director at uCheck
“Of the 165 to 170 million admissions per year UK cinemas were seeing pre-pandemic, around 30% fall within the 15-24 year old bracket. For many wanting to get into a ‘15’ or ‘18’ certificate film proving their age – without an ID document to hand – can be difficult and a source of frustration when they are turned away. This partnership offers a straightforward and modern way to alleviate many of those issues.”
Phil Clapp, CEO at the UK Cinema Association
