Verified.Me, by SecureKey Technologies Inc., is a new Canadian service to help you verify your identity, so you can get things done fast online, in person and on the phone.(1) Verified.Me helps you verify your identity quickly and securely from any Android smartphone, using personal information that you consent to share from your Connections.
Verified.Me reduces oversharing - you choose when to share your information and with whom. You are always in control.
Today, customers of Desjardins, RBC, Scotiabank and TD can use the service. CIBC is expected to go live later in April, and BMO and National Bank of Canada will also be available later this year.
Verified.Me was developed by SecureKey Technologies and our innovation partners with strong security protocols and privacy at the core.
You’re in control. You choose which network participants to connect with and when, where and why they use your personal information. This means your information is only shared with your consent for a specific purpose.
Your encrypted information is made available in real-time and shared directly from your Connections when you approve it. Your personal information is not stored in the Verified.Me mobile app.
Verified.Me uses strong security protocols to protect personal information from being identified, accessed or misused. Verified.Me has no access to the online and mobile banking credentials you use when authenticating yourself with your financial institution.
Sun Life Financial has signed on as early adopter and the first North American insurer, making it easier for their clients to do business with the company. Equifax has also joined as the service's first credit bureau, and all Verified.Me customers can access their free credit score today.
Please note that the app doesn’t support the preview editions of the Android OS.
