Built with Security in Mind

  • Anonymous


    Identity data is encrypted and stored within the Civic app on a User’s phone. Access only the data you need. Rely on the verified information on the device. No need to add more liability to your operation and create user friction by asking for document scans over and over again.

  • Distributed ID Storage

    Distributed ID Storage

    Civic uses the power of the blockchain to ensure the highest level of privacy and security for your business. Concerns about identity theft can be a thing of the past if you don’t need to collect or store customer personal information.

  •  User-permissioned


    The Civic app stores a user’s personally identifiable information (PII) securely on his or her phone using high-level encryption and biometrics. The user chooses whether to approve or deny all requests for information, so the solution complies with the most stringent data protection regulations out there.

  • Reusable


    Users only need to submit their data once in the Civic app to get verified. The process is easy and fast with most users taking between 3-5 minutes to onboard. The reuse happens in seconds. This verified information is good until revoked or the document expires.

  • Affordable


    Civic reduces the overhead costs related to compliance and fraud prevention controls, as a user only needs to be verified once. Proving their age becomes an inexpensive and fast information request that relies on the original attestation of their identity documents.

  • Mobile-powered


    Identity data is encrypted and stored in the Civic app on users’ phones. The mobile device enables a more thorough verification of the owner of the document, requiring a liveness test and a selfie comparison with the submitted document to ensure that the true owner of the device is the one getting authorized.
