eID-Me is a secure digital identity app that is now available in Ontario, Québec, and British Columbia, and Saskatchewan. eID-Me was developed by the Ottawa-based company, Bluink, backed by a $1.2M award from the Ontario Government.
eID-Me digitizes and securely stores government-issued identity and self-managed identity information on your smartphone.
Features and partnerships are being developed to make online identity verification quicker, easier, and more secure by eliminating passwords and strengthening privacy.
eID-Me’s digital ID can serve as a secure backup of your identity information in case you lose your physical ID documents.
eID-Me can’t currently be used as a substitute for legal identification. Our goal is to improve access to services that require verified identity, including government, financial, health care, and more. We’re developing partnerships to get that done. Having the eID-Me app up and running is necessary for that process.
If you want to help speed up eID-Me integrations, spread the word. Share eID-Me content on social media. Show eID-Me to friends. Email your MP and MPP, asking them to support eID-Me digital ID. Learn more at: eid-me.com/share
Join our eID-Me Members group to receive exclusive eID-Me information, access polls and group discussions, and help shape the future of digital identity. Learn more at: eid-me.com/join
HOW IT WORKS
Register for eID-Me by taking a live selfie, scanning your ID documents, and submitting for identity proofing while at your home address.
Your information is encrypted and sent to eID-Me’s secure registration server for verification. Once verified, an eID-Me digital identity is created on your smartphone using a digital certificate, which is bound to an anonymous identifier and your identity information.
You then have a secure digital wallet which can be used in online and offline identity transactions (coming soon). No identity information is retained on Bluink’s eID-Me servers.
PRIVACY AND SECURITY
eID-Me’s decentralized identity model reduces the risk of massive data breaches since there is no centralized store of identity information. Your information is only stored on your smartphone.
eID-Me’s digital wallet is protected on the smartphone with strong encryption, leveraging the smartphone’s hardware security mechanisms, and is bound to your unlock method (e.g., passcode, fingerprint scan, face verification).
If your smartphone is lost, the “Find my iPhone” app can be used to find it or remotely wipe your data.
BENEFITS AND FEATURES
- Secure digital ID on your smartphone.
- Secure digital wallet on your smartphone containing your identity with verified ID information and self-managed information (e.g., credit card and medical information).
- No cloud storage of your identity information.
- Strong encryption and certificate-based authentication.
- eID-Me identity is bound to your local smartphone authentication (e.g., Touch ID, Face ID).
- Strong privacy protection with complete control over your identity and information.
- Fixed an issue where scanning Ontario Driver's Licence could fail

Support for PR CARD please
Great initiation guys loved it too bad it doesn’t support PR card holders
Hope I see these in future updates
1- support for PR card holders
2-support to upload multiple documents like insurance and registration too along with license that would be really helpful.
Hoping to get a update soon eagerly waiting
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your interest in eID-Me! We're working on removing the passport requirement, which will let you register with just a driver's licence. We'd also like to add PR cards in the future. If you want to beta test these features, you can email email@example.com to let us know. Thanks again and take care.
Not working... garbage
Never mind the fact this doesn’t work who in thier right mind would accept this ID as creditable when all you have is a small black and white photo of your cards. I.e licence etc.
Developer Response ,
Sorry to hear that. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll provide some assistance. eID-Me is currently accepted as a form of identity verification for Diamond and Diamond Lawyers, and we're working on more integrations now. Thank you and take care.
Terribly constructed app
So many glitches and won’t scan my AB Driver’s License
Developer Response ,
Sorry about that. When adding an ID document, after tapping on driver's licence, the app asks: "Was your licence issued before June 2018? Yes / No." If you originally tapped "Yes", you can try tapping "No" (or vice versa). Please email email@example.com and we'll provide some assistance. Thank you and take care.
