Secure Citizen 
for Individuals

Don’t be a victim. Become a Secure Citizen and Own Your Identity. 

It's time to

Own Your Identity

It’s time for a better, safer way. Digital identity.

How can you prove that you are who you say you are, online? Customers face a difficult challenge today. How can you easily use your identity to conveniently access a service online and at the same time, make it hard for fraudsters to gain access to your identity for financial gain (identity theft)?

Identity theft affects everyone, including you.

Fraudsters. Just knowing that they’re out there adds unwanted anxiety to every transaction, and lets suspicion creep in.

Then there’s the very real risk of financial loss, as well as the added frustration of having to get your life back on track after being defrauded. There is a real need for ID management and protection. That’s where we come in. With the ability to transact with your digital identity and easily apply for protective registration, Secure Citizens are simply safer.
Features and benefits
Secure Citizen for Individuals
With Secure Citizen, your biometric data becomes the key to unlocking a world of fraud-free transactions so you can live online without fear.

As a Secure Citizen, your unique biometric information will be captured and validated against the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) database.

Your Digital Identity will now serve as a way of engaging with businesses and people, as well as preventing fraudsters from impersonating you. With biometrics, no one can pretend to be you, because you are the only you!

Secure Citizen for Individuals is free and available to all  South African citizens. You don’t need a South African ID to own your identity.

When you sign up to Secure Citizen, you can be sure that when an application is made using your information, it is you and not a fraudster pretending to be you! This is how we make sure your digital life will be quick, painless and most of all secure!

Concerned that your personal information may have been compromised by a fraudster? Apply for Protective Registration with the Southern African Fraud Prevention Service (SAFPS) to protect your identity here.

Ever wanted to look someone up and verify that they are who they say they are? Our new service Verify’em gives you the ability to safely verify the identity of an individual, using their facial biometrics (a selfie).

Whether you’ve met someone that seems ‘too good to be true,’ or you’d like to look up the identity of a marketplace buyer / seller, you can Verify’em!

Need to confirm your name change or marital status? Enrol as a Secure Citizen and tap into your vital Department of Home Affairs info without standing in a queue or listening to call centre on hold music. No other identity management solution offers this functionality.

Once you’ve claimed your identity, businesses using our platform will digitally request your permission in order to interact with you. You’ll have full control over what data you give them access to. As you’d expect, we’re fully POPIA-compliant. We’re honoured to act as the custodians of your data, but ownership will always rest with you.

Use your biometrics instead of complex passwords. We’re replacing the need to create and remember complex passwords. Now you can authenticate yourself with your face or your voice, something no one else can replicate.

Once you register as a Secure Citizen, you won’t need to validate your identity every time you apply for credit with our partners.



We’ve partnered with South Africa’s leading fraud prevention authority, the SAFPS – and this lets us offer consumer fraud prevention solutions for free.

Remember, if you suspect that you’ve been a victim of fraud, report it to the SAFPS immediately. Secure Citizen is a world-class identity platform provider using multi modal biometrics to enable individuals and businesses to interact conveniently and safely.
