Attributes are the different personal details you can share or swap from your EasyID, for example:
- Photo of ID
- Full Name
- Date of Birth
- Mobile Number
An attribute is ‘verified’ (represented by a blue shield in the Post Office EasyID app) if either or both of the following is true:
- We trust in the source of the information. For most identity documents, we check we trust the source by visually inspecting the photo of the ID document you captured
- We check the accuracy of the information, usually by contacting an approved identity provider that can verify your details
If your attributes are verified, you’ll see a blue shield next to them. If they are unverified, there will be no blue shield.
The majority of businesses that work with EasyID require verified attributes to prove your identity.
If you have more questions, you can contact customer support.
