How Identity Requests Work

The Barcode

Special QR barcodes can be generated by trusted third parties. These barcodes contain instructions for an ID application to request information from you.

The Scanning Process

Special QR code scanners can read and verify these identity requests to ensure they are authentic. The verification process uses cryptographic algorithms to ensure it has not been tampered with.

The Disclosure Process

If you have the requested data available in your mobile ID application, you will be prompted to share the data with the trusted third party. You can review who made the identity request and what data is being disclosed. Upon approving the disclosure, your data is transmitted to the trusted third party over a secure connection.
