Yoti is a digital identity company that makes it safer for people to prove who they are.
"We’re a team of over 500 people, working together to shape the future of digital identity. We provide innovative solutions across the globe, spanning Digital ID, identity verification, age verification, age estimation, eSigning, and authentication. Nearly four years ago we integrated our leading facial age estimation technology into retail self-checkouts. Since then, it has been trialled by retailers in the US and Estonia, with further pilots taking place in Germany, Poland and Czech Republic. And last year UK supermarkets - including Asda, Morrisons, Tesco and Co-op - tested the technology as part of a Home Office regulatory sandbox. The aim of the sandbox was to trial digital age verification for the sale of alcohol under the UK Licensing Act (2003). Our technology gives shoppers a privacy-preserving way to prove their age, without needing to show ID documents. This is particularly impactful for those that do not own, or feel comfortable showing ID. It can improve the checkout experience for customers who do not wish to wait for assistance, and reduce friction between retail staff and customers. Digital age verification can also enhance the Licensing Objectives, meet compliance rates and provide stronger protection against fake IDs. "
