Yoti is a London-based technology company on a mission to become the world’s trusted identity platform. Founded in 2014, we’re a team of over 250 people with headquarters in central London, an office in India and a growing presence in the USA.
Our primary offering is a free digital identity app that gives you a simple and secure way to prove your identity, online and in person. You can use Yoti to prove your age, verify the identity of people you meet online, prove who you are to businesses and log in to websites without passwords.
Along with our work with businesses, we’re also deeply committed to helping digital identities become a force for social good. In pursuit of this we’re working with the humanitarian and non-profit communities to help them deploy appropriately-designed digital identity solutions in their work. We’re also looking to better understand 21st century identity concerns and opportunities among communities in developing countries, and supporting local innovators in their pursuit to deploy solutions to local problems that matter most to them.
