Civic believes everyone should have the right to control the use of their personal information. The Civic app provides control of personal information you share with Civic Partners. Move beyond traditional 2-factor authentication without vulnerable texted codes and passwords.
“The bottom line is that Americans are not in control of when and where their personal information is being used, and Civic plans to change that.” –Forbes
Verified Identity Services with Secure Private Authentication expands as our Partner network grows. Offerings are being integrated with Partner technologies and will be available in shortly in subsequent updates. Take advantage of expanded offerings, e.g. in app sign up, by updating the Civic app.
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.
Fixed a bug where some users could not resend their verification code
Ratings and Reviews
Yet another disappointing centralized service
Please, remove the first two lines of the app description, they are FALSE!
Civic is more centralized than the Social Security Administration. Not only that, but document verification is done by someone who claims to be authorized to do so?! Control is the last thing one can have over their documents, and the lack of functionality is build in with the app. Try using it while traveling, or switch SIM cards, it will fail getting your information right almost every time. And instead of 12 word seed, one would get encrypted iCloud backup - safety first! 😄
Please Civic, explain how US person with documents from other two countries, plus 5 credit cards with 3 international addresses matching the cards would verify with you? And yes, its legal! If the embassies and banks says it’s ok, that means it’s legal.
I guess it’s not accident the US ban on ICOs, it’s failure after failure with such pseudo companies. After all, to succeed experience is a must! Well, we’ll just wait to see what PayPal & Cambridge-Blockchain will build, or may be the MITs will get tired of watching little firms struggling, and will build ID verification in BitPay...
Developer Response ,
We appreciate your feedback and please feel free to contact our team directly at email@example.com if you have any questions on how to use the app. To clarify some of the comments made, here is a description of what Civic Secure Identity Platform is:
Civic Secure Identity Platform provides verified identity that is decentralized with blockchain technology and does not store user data. Identity data is encrypted and stored in the Civic App on User mobile devices and can be accessed with biometrics. As a verified user, you can authenticate without the need for traditional physical IDs, knowledge-based authentication, username/password, and two-factor hardware tokens.

I’m not sure what this app does
I thought it was supposed to send me notifications when new credit lines were opened and allow me to either authorize or decline but I’ve opened new accounts and received no such notifications ... also, it crashes at launch on iOS 12 ... I’m sure it’s supposed to do a lot more than what I mentioned but that’s the reason I downloaded it for ... please fix for iOS 12
This is a game changer
Not from an investment perspective , but think bigger.
Data dumps of the past. And protecting any kind of other data that needs to remain provide in the bigger online internet based eco system.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
