Hello Yoti, Our ID Verification Experts

As an online agency, it’s really important we give nannies the opportunity to ID verify themselves. And Yoti is our highly respected partner for this service. Therefore, we’ve built Yoti into the sign-up journey for all nannies.

Families that see a profile that’s ID verified by Yoti are more confident about the profile as a whole. So, if you’re a nanny signing-up to Army of Nannies, we encourage you to do the ID verification with Yoti – what’s to lose? It’s free and only goes to strengthen a profile.

Here’s a short intro from the team to tell you more about them and what makes them tick.

We are Yoti

Yoti is a digital identity platform on a mission to make it easier and safer to prove who you are.

We started in 2014 building an app that puts your ID on your phone. Today, we have over eight million app downloads around the world and have expanded our digital identity platform to offer embedded identity verification, age estimation technology, electronic signatures and AI anti-spoofing technologies.

How to verify your identity

When creating your profile on Army of Nannies, you’ll have the option of verifying your identity. And this builds trust with potential employers. It also gives you an ID Verified tick on your profile.

You can do this by uploading a photo of a government-issued ID document (such as a passport or driving license). And then taking a security selfie from your phone.

Behind the scenes with Yoti

This information gets sent to our highly protected security centre. We use a combination of leading technology and manual checks to make sure the ID document is genuine and the photo matches the holder – this is why the selfie is important.

It helps us make sure we’ve captured a photo of a real person and not an automated bot, mask or photo. We use advanced anti-spoofing technology to help us achieve this.

In just a few minutes, nannies can complete their identity verification and have their check results sent back to Army of Nannies. They then issue the profile with a verified tick. It’s as simple as that!

What else Yoti can do for you?

We’re strong believers that digital identity can build trust, protect people and make life easier in our increasingly digital world.
