About Digital Identity

A new way to prove who you are

We are all required to prove our identity repeatedly to access a range of government services.

Digital Identity makes it quicker and easier to access government services by giving you the choice to create a Digital Identity with an accredited identity provider which you can use to prove who you are online again and again.

A Digital Identity is not a replacement for physical documents such as a birth certificate, visa, driver’s licence or passport. If you can’t use Digital Identity, or don’t want to, you can keep accessing government services online, on the phone or in person at government shop fronts across the country.

Set it up once, and then reuse it whenever you are asked to prove who you are.
