How Civic works:
The Civic Secure Identity app stores your sensitive information securely on your phone using bank level encryption and biometric locks. By keeping your data in your control, it’s much harder for hackers and other malicious groups to gain access to this information.
Civic Partners request your information through custom QR codes to be scanned with the Civic Secure Identity app. Once you’ve unlocked the app with your biometrics, you can scan these codes, review exactly which information is being requested, and choose whether to approve or deny the request.
This unique method allows members to create secure accounts, login to existing accounts, and share sensitive information all without passwords or data being stored outside of your mobile device.
