What is the Post Office EasyID app?


Post Office EasyID is a safe and secure way to prove your age and identity, either in person or online. The Post Office EasyID app stores your personal information in one place, giving only you access to view all of the details. 

When you need to prove your age, identity, and other personal details with a business or another person, the app will only share the details you need.

You will be able to use it in a variety of situations, such as:

  • Banking at the Post Office
  • Employment verification
  • Picking up a parcel
  • Age verification for retail purchases

What are the benefits? 

You’re in control

Over 6.9 million data records are stolen every day (Breach Level Index, 2018). With EasyID, you control which data to share, who you share it with and when.

Everything in one place

Brits spent £18.6m on replacing lost and damaged driving licences (DVLA, 2017). 

Securely store all of your documents and personal information in one app and conveniently share it and only share the information you need to.

Protect yourself from ID fraud

89,000 cases of identity fraud in the first half of 2017 (Cifas, 2017) 

Your unique biometrics protect your EasyID, making it more difficult for someone to impersonate you and commit fraud or other crimes in your name.

Verify once for unlimited and use

Once you have created your EasyID profile and verified your details, you won’t have to do it again. You’ll be free to share the details you need with one tap or scan of a QR share whenever you want. 

How does it Work?

If you want to start using the Post Office EasyID app, complete the following steps:

  1. Download the Post Office EasyID App from App Store or Google Play.  
  2. Next, add a phone number to your profile and create a 5-digit PIN to secure your account.
  3. When prompted, take a scan of your face so that the app can verify you and protect your account.
  4. Upload and verify identification records and credentials. 

With the Post Office EasyID app, you can prove your identity to thousands of retailers and organisations, including Payzone stores. You can also use the Yoti ID app anywhere you can use Post Office EasyID.
