We began in 2014 by building a free consumer app that puts your ID on your phone. Yoti ID is designed with privacy at its core, giving individuals a safe way to share personal details with businesses and individuals. Today, we have over 12 million app downloads around the world. We’ve expanded our offering to a suite of business solutions that span identity verification, age estimation, e-signing and AI anti-spoofing technologies.

At Yoti, social purpose isn’t an add on. It’s at the heart of everything we do. Our seventh ethical business principle is ‘Make Yoti available to everyone’ But to do so, we need to understand what identity means across the globe. Our social purpose team is dedicated to doing just that. The majority of digital identity solutions require technical know-how, expensive hardware or connectivity not available in many remote, last-mile locations where humanitarian needs are at their greatest. Following a period of research, we are developing a simple, fully offline and open source identity solution for organisations working in challenging, last-mile locations. Every year we offer three fully-funded scholarships to individuals passionate about researching the opportunities and challenges of digital identity in the Global South. Applicants can be based anywhere, though preference is given to those from under-developed regions. Fellows are supported with a generous stipend and receive logistical and technical support from Yoti. Our Humanitarian Tech Support Programme is designed to support tech-focused startups working to solve global humanitarian problems. We are working closely with Programme partners to fill in any skill gaps, helping them to better understand the human, technical and environmental context of their work. We are also helping with the design, testing and deployment of their solutions. Our independent ethics board is made up of influential individuals from relevant fields such as human rights, data privacy and last mile tech. They help us to navigate the complex world of identity and ensure we always strive to do what’s right by our community.
