Civic believes everyone should have the right to control the use of their personal information. The Civic app provides control of personal information you share with Civic Partners. Move beyond traditional 2-factor authentication without vulnerable texted codes and passwords. Depending on what information you verify, Civic may use third party verification services to validate your passport, drivers license, or national ID card. Civic may also collect Biometric information, including a selfie capture, for authentication purposes.
“The bottom line is that Americans are not in control of when and where their personal information is being used, and Civic plans to change that.” –Forbes
How Civic works:
The Civic Secure Identity app stores your sensitive information securely on your phone using bank level encryption and biometric locks. By keeping your data in your control, it’s much harder for hackers and other malicious groups to gain access to this information.
Civic Partners request your information through custom QR codes to be scanned with the Civic Secure Identity app. Once you’ve unlocked the app with your biometrics, you can scan these codes, review exactly which information is being requested, and choose whether to approve or deny the request.
This unique method allows members to create secure accounts, login to existing accounts, and share sensitive information all without passwords or data being stored outside of your mobile device.
