Los Angeles, CA – May 30, 2019 — Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® is pleased to announce an exclusive interview with Julie Dawson, Director of Regulatory & Policy, and Robin Tombs, Co-founder and CEO of Yoti to discuss Yoti’s revolutionary digital identity app, how Yoti can help protect children online and why digital identities will be integral to a safer future for businesses and individuals.
Yoti is a new app designed to give individuals a simple and safe way of proving their age and identity. It gives them more control of their personal data and helps protect them from the ever growing risks of identity fraud.
“We’ve designed an app that is free,” says Dawson. “Using just your face and ID documents you can set up a secure digital identity once, then you can use it many times over. You can also just share certain identity details rather than disclosing an excessive amount of sensitive, personal details. That’s a very different way of doing things, and it’s very disruptive.”
“It’s really easy to use Yoti,” says Tombs. “I could scan a Yoti QR code in a retail store or online to share my verified age in seconds when buying age-restricted items. Or when signing up to a classified site, I could use Yoti to share my verified details at the touch of a button. That means all of the buyers and sellers know people on the site have been verified to a high standard, which creates more trust and transparency online.”
“We’re already working with some fantastic brands around the world, including social
networking site Yubo who are using our trusted AI age estimation technology Yoti Age
Scan to flag any accounts where the person appears to have significantly misstated
their age; an important step in safeguarding young people on social networks, which
would be too expensive to do manually each day.”
Yoti is about to change the way people do business,” says J.L. Haber, Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business. “People want something they can trust to keep their identities and personal data safe, and businesses want secure identity verification solutions.
