Onboarding & Login
You only have to register once for YourID after which you can access any online place that collaborates with YourID. This one time on-boarding on YourID’s identity platform is easy and convenient.
Opening an account is as simple as entering your name, email address and phone number, or connecting an existing Google, Facebook, Amazon or LinkedIn account. Each account can be associated with multiple emails and telephone numbers, and levelled-up with additional verification factors to unlock enhanced physical and digital security features.
Once successfully on-boarded, additional online profiles can be added to your account. In addition to a Facebook or LinkedIn profile, you can also add other types of profiles, like a medical profile, financial profile or business profile.
These profiles can then be used to share with third parties, but only if you want to. Remember that with YourID you are always in full control of your data and you decide with who to share what parts of your information.
Once on-boarded, accessing a website, platform or other online place will probably be the most popular functionality in YourID. For this reason, it will allow you to login in a friendly way, following the process depicted below:
YourID’s app will offer a variety of identity and authentication features based on one of 4 service levels: Basic, Basic Age, Basic ID and Premium Flex. The 3 Basic levels are free for you as a user.

YourID’s DNA – Values & Principles
To support YourID’s purpose and to promote and protect your interests as a user, the following core values and guidelines for the YourID foundation have been established.
✓ Provide a solution that is developed around the user, guided by respect for user’s privacy and giving the user full ownership of, insight in and control over the user’s identity information. Put the user in control of what user data can be viewed and/or used by the parties that collaborate with YourID.
✓ Enable users to authenticate themselves through their biometric characteristic(s), and to conveniently access online platforms and websites on an international scale, through a secure and re-usable online identity, without passwords and usernames, and enable users to manage their different forms of identity in one single app and platform.
✓ Provide users with multiple features and functions related to (online) identity management that can vary from biometric identification to trusted third-party verifications. Features and functions are based (as much as reasonably possible) on consumer market research and the requirements and wishes from the websites, platforms and other stakeholders that participate in YourID.
✓ Create the app and platform in such a way that it is technically virtually impossible for anybody except users to view user information or data regarding use.
✓ Refrain from having any (commercial) benefit or interest in user identity information or other user information.
✓ Provide transparency to all main parties collaborating with YourID regarding how the user’s data is processed and secured.
✓ Promote interoperability between all kinds of companies, governments, institutions and industry sectors. Enable websites, CMS systems and online platforms to easily integrate YourID’s technology with their own technology and provide them with an attractive method to validate user identities, verify user information and make their validation processes more secure and efficient.
✓ Create a globally available, technology-agnostic, flexible and future-proof app and platform by joining carefully selected, proven technologies from best-of-breed global suppliers. If necessary, YourID can oversee the development of technology parts that do not exist yet.
✓ Establish collaborations with a large variety of trusted participants, where online platforms, websites, technology providers and other stakeholders are invited to join, guided by the objective to create a global industry-wide collaboration for password-less and user-centric online access, that is supported by as many parties as possible.
✓ Not interfere in the business where users access through YourID, and not interfere in transactions and/or interactions between YourID users and collaborating partners. In addition, YourID will not track & trace user behavior within its services.
✓ Provide transparency to all main parties collaborating with YourID regarding the structure of YourID’s foundation, its board-members, collaborators and stakeholders.
✓ Enable regular, independent audits based on YourID’s Core Values & Principles to guarantee that the YourID foundation fulfils its promises. Audits will be done by an internationally recognized body and the reports will be shared with the members of the main board, advisory board and supervisory board of the foundation, as well as with any consumer representing organization that requests it.
✓ Promote YourID’s independence regarding the way it is managed and supervised and create a (legal) structure in which no single party or small minority can have substantial control over any aspect of YourID that can be considered fundamental. Implement a structure that makes it impossible for a single party or small minority to control and/or change any relevant aspect of YourID’s platform, technology, governance structure and/or any of the elements described in YourID’s Core Values & Principles.
