Verify your identity only once

Verify your identity only once

After verifying your identity once with ID.me, you won’t have to re-verify to access other government sites. You can use the same login to access services at other federal agencies and across other sectors.

Control how your information is shared

Control how your information is shared

You control which services and businesses can receive your information. As you access new sites with your ID.me login, we will clearly explain what information is needed, and ask your permission before sharing any data.

How It Works
Step 1:

Create a new ID.me account or click "Sign In" to access your existing account.

Step 2:

Secure your account with two-factor authentication (2FA). It helps to make sure that no one but you can access your account.

Step 3:

Verify your identity using your driver's license, passport, and/or by answering a few questions.

Step 4:

Consent to share your information with the partner website, and you’re in!
