Yoti and CitizenCard have teamed up to launch the UK’s first digital identity card. It’s police approved and can be used to create a digital identity with the free Yoti app.

We believe everyone should be able to prove who they are. That’s why we’re giving free digital ID cards to young people through universities, colleges and secondary schools in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Equal opportunities
for all

Without an ID, young people are being socially excluded, overlooked and left behind – unable to easily apply for jobs, housing, bank accounts, and even give blood. It’s also harder for them to get the age related discounts they deserve and take part in social activities like going to the cinema or going on a night out.

The UK government is adding more and more scenarios where we need to prove our identity. Buying drain cleaner, energy drinks, voting, accessing adult content online. The list goes on.

Your identity should not be used as a way of tracking you.


In today’s world we need to prove who we are online and in person.
