HID Global Introduces HID goID™ Citizen Age Verification Solution

Sponsored by Businesswire

HID Global®, a worldwide leader in trusted identity
solutions, today announced it has extended the capabilities of its HID
goID™ mobile identity solution that enables government agencies to move
from physical documents to mobile IDs on citizens’ smartphones. The
latest addition to HID’s mobile identity offering, the HID goID Simple
Verifier, is a small device that can be used by anyone seeking to
quickly verify the age of citizens carrying an HID goID mobile ID on
their smartphones—all with just one click.

“The Simple Verifier is ideal for institutions and private sector
establishments such as bars, clubs and any entity that must verify
customers’ ages before permitting entry or the purchase and consumption
of alcohol,” said Steve Warne, Senior Director, Product Marketing,
Citizen ID business with HID Global
. “In addition to enabling the
private sector to combat fake ID attempts, the latest addition to HID
goID is a powerful digital verification tool that supports governments’
broader age-restricted products and services initiatives geared towards
protecting the health, safety and well-being of minors.”

After connecting via Bluetooth to the HID goID Simple Verifier, the
device confirms age by securely sending a random code to the citizen’s
mobile ID on their smartphone. The citizen’s age is confirmed with no
scanning, tapping or any other action required. Because the solution
only verifies the age of the mobile ID holder, the process is quick and
efficient. It also protects citizen privacy since no additional
information beyond the legal age of the citizen is shared.

Easily carried in a pocket or on a keyring, the new device joins a
family of HID goID verification options that include solutions for PCs
and servers, and purpose-built mobile verifiers for large-scale
