About this app

In today's connected world, Mobile ID offers a private, secure, contactless way to verify identity, either at home or on-the-go. Everything is on your phone – now your ID is, too!

Intuitive, easy-to-use and highly convenient, New York Mobile ID can be used anywhere it’s accepted, in any context a physical ID would be used – with enhanced privacy features. Only your Face ID, TouchID or six-digit pin will unlock the app and access your Mobile ID.

In five simple steps, you can create your New York MiD:

1. Download the app and set permissions
2. Verify access to your phone number
3. Use your device camera to scan the front and back of your driver license or ID card
4. Follow the steps to capture a selfie
5. Set up app security and you’re good to go!

Please note:
New York Mobile ID is an official state-issued ID, serving as a companion to your physical ID. As not all entities are able to verify Mobile ID, you should continue to carry your physical ID.

This app is half-baked, not ready for public use. Tried to go through the process yesterday - failed due to "connectivity issues". Turned off VPN & WiFi as directed by help chat person and tried again today. Captured license but couldn't capture my face. I've gone through other ID verification processes in the past for other services. All worked fine. Never had any problems. App devs need to test thoroughly for all scenarios. This app is not a frictionless process to go through.

-1 star for liveness (face photo) capture being finicky, but I'm very excited to ditch my physical ID and wallet for digital versions. App instructions, UI, ease of use and utility are strong. Now we just need business establishments and government facilities to start broadly accepting digital IDs. Thank you, New York State, for making this happen!

app "sticks" on phone # "verification" page. Then after getting multiple links sent, clicking each, error #E50710. got through to scan id ONCE, & it couldn't scan the back... (this app relies completely on autofocus, can't click the screen to choose focus area like you would in basically any other scanning app) definitely seems there was zero testing done before launch, but I expect no less from the NYS govt 🤗
