SecureIdentity by Morpho goes live

British citizens and residents can now use the digital identity service SecureIdentity, following certification by the UK government. This service is provided by Morpho (Safran), world leader in identity and security solutions.

Citizen Identity

Morpho is one of the new providers to support the expansion of online services offered through the UK government's new GOV.UK Verify program. GOV.UK Verify is the new way to prove who you are online so that users can safely and securely access an increasing range of digital government services, such as viewing their driving licenses or filing their taxes.

We are very pleased to join the GOV.UK Verify program and are especially proud to be the first identity provider to go live under the new framework for certified companies. This is another significant step for Morpho, adding to our extensive portfolio of 55 ID projects around the world.
Paul Naldrett, Managing Director Morpho UK

SecureIdentity is a secure and easy-to-use mobile application for citizens to prove and protect their identities online. Users will be able to create a verified identity account through GOV.UK Verify. First-time users of SecureIdentity will go through a one-time only verification process that takes about 10 minutes. Once users are registered on SecureIdentity, it only takes only a few seconds to prove their identities online, thanks to the use of a secure smartphone app. SecureIdentity will enable immediate and secure access without having to wait days for passwords or ID numbers to arrive in the post.

SecureIdentity fully supports the GOV.UK Verify movement to revolutionize access to public services through the adoption of strong digital identification and authentication technologies. These technologies will enable UK citizens and residents to benefit from easier, simpler and faster access to public services, whilst protecting the privacy of their personal data. There will be neither central storage of information nor any disclosure of personal data without the explicit authorization of the user.
