Adding an ID document is optional. However, to verify certain details (eg. your name, date of birth and nationality) a valid ID document such as a passport is necessary. This level of verification is why both users and organisations can trust Yoti - and each other.
If you add an ID document - once verified, we delete the scan/picture of your document so only you hold a copy. The picture of your document will not be saved in the Yoti app.
