Yoti explores digital ID needs within UK's charity projects

Friday 14 September 2018 | 10:58 AM CET

Yoti has announced a new research project aimed at exploring the digital identity needs of charities in the UK.

The research project carries forward the momentum of Yoti’s recent investigations in Africa and Southeast Asia, which found some potential use cases for the company’s facial recognition-driven mobile ID technology, such as identifying infants in healthcare and preventing fraud and corruption.

The technology provider has identified key questions that support the project, including, “How could digital identification help UK charities to more effectively collect information about people using their services?” and, “Could Yoti’s offline identity solution help people to take ownership of their background information and how they share it when accessing multiple, or repeat, services?”, according to Mobile ID World.

At the end of August 2018, the digital identity platform partnered with Scotland’s local government to pilot a smartphone app which allows citizens to identify themselves online and in person to access public services.
