What would verify your identity?

Identity verification is the process of proving that you are who you say you are and not someone trying to be you. For your account, you only need to authenticate your identity once. We'll keep a record of this for future visits.

There are two ways to identify yourself when you visit our website: through what's called "single-factor authentication" or "password protection."

Single-factor authentication requires only one factor of identification in order to login to your account. This means that anyone who has your username can log in as long as they know your password. Single-factor authentication protects your account by making it difficult for someone to use your login information if they cannot get access to your password.

Password protection requires something extra from you in addition to your username and password. When you use this type of security, before logging in, our system will ask you to enter a special code created by us randomly for each login attempt. This code is called a "token" or a "challenge." Only users with access to this challenge can solve it and gain access to their account.

If you forget your password, you can click "forgot password?" to receive an email containing additional information on how to reset it.

What does ID verification mean?

ID verification is a type of authentication that compares a person's claimed identification against data that verifies it. Birth certificates, social security cards, driver's licenses, and other papers can all act as suppliers of this objective reality. The goal is to prove that the person claiming to be who they say they are is actually who they claim to be.

In order for ID verification to be considered reliable, there should be only one source for each piece of identification presented. If any additional documents or information are required to verify your identity, then the system has failed.

Documents used in ID verification include birth certificates, marriage licenses, divorce records, death certificates, and tax forms such as W-2s and 1099s. Each document contains data about the claimant. This data may include their name, address, and sometimes even a picture. These items should all be identical to those listed on the ID being verified.

The verifying party will also need to find evidence of ownership for any objects such as cars, houses, or credit cards that are claimed by the individual.

Finally, the claimant's date of birth can usually be found on a government issued ID, such as a driver's license or social security card. The year of birth is typically shown in two digits while the month and day are displayed in four characters.
