An Overview of The Service

miiCard (My Internet Identity) is a global Identity as a Service solution (IDaaS) that proves ‘you are who you say you are,’ purely online, in minutes and to the same level as a physical passport or photo ID check.

Through a patented process that leverages the trust between an individual and their financial institution, miiCard establishes identity to Level of Assurance 3+ (LOA3+) and meets Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) identity guidelines, enabling the sale of regulated products and services purely online.

Combining online identity proofing with strong authentication, miiCard provides the trust and security required for people and businesses to meet, transact and utilise services with confidence in a purely digital environment.

As a single, trusted digital ID founded on the principles of Bring Your Own Identity (BYOID), miiCard is convenient and flexible providing members complete control over their online identity and personal information.

The use of the Service is charged to our members on an annual subscription basis. Subscribing to miiCard allows you as an individual to publish your identity to the internet and share it with other individuals, or use it on participating websites, at your discretion and at no further cost.

Participating sites that require you to share your identity to complete a transaction or process will always be available to you regardless of your subscription status. These participating sites may be charged separately for the service.

For a limited time, as we build our community, miiCard is currently free for life for any new members. Pricing information is available from the website here »
