ID.me's technology is focused on digital verification for identity and group affiliations. ID.me lets users prove their identity and group affiliations online, and puts them in charge of how all their personal information is shared. Verification is done in real-time on partner sites, helping top brands and organizations deliver special offers and discounts to selected groups. ID.me currently verifies military/veterans, students, teachers and first responders, while expanding to include even more affinity groups of all sizes along with non-profit/tax-exempt organizations. Our products (TROOP ID, STUDENT ID, TEACHER ID and FIRST RESPONDER ID) are Single Sign On widgets that act as digital ID cards in order to allow members of specific communities to access exclusive offers and discounts, while protecting our brand partners from fraud. Our products currently power programs for Jockey, Overstock, Dell, Under Armour, Veterans Affairs, C.O. Bigelow, Tough Mudder, Uber, uShip and many more name brands.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce recognized ID.me as the 2013 “Most Veteran Friendly Small Business in America,” the Wall Street Journal selected ID.me as one of the top 20 startups in the country, and Entrepreneur Magazine included ID.me in its list of 100 Brilliant Companies.
ID.me’s mission is to make the web a more trusted place and in doing so, delivers the following benefits to brands:
- The goal of marketing is to build an emotional connection with customers, and there is nothing more powerful than recognizing a select group.
- ID.me empowers brands to digitally deliver exclusive benefits to select groups by eliminating the potential for leaked promo codes and fraud.
- ID.me identity technology verifies group affiliation through financial institutions, government agencies and secure national organizations.
- ID.me verifies a customer’s group affiliation faster than you can take an ID card out of your wallet.
- Once a member has verified his or her affiliation through ID.me, they can use their ID.me credentials to gain access to benefits across the web wherever the ID.me widget is installed, eliminating the need to share sensitive information with multiple websites.
