Re-Introducing YouID — a Verifiable Credentials Generator

We are pleased to re-introduce the iOS (available immediately!) and Browser Extension variants (available soon!) of our YouID Credentials Generator, with a major version bump from 1 to 2 and enormous functionality improvements.

Both app and extension provide a “deceptively simple” solution for creating user-controlled verifiable credentials that scale to both the Internet and Web.

Both solutions use existing open standards to facilitate personal privacy-related best practices, such as —

  1. Digitally Signed Emails — enabling verification of message sender

  2. Digitally Signed & Encrypted Emails — ensuring messages can be read only by designated recipients

  3. Sharing Files (Photos, Music, other Document Types) with family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, and other groups, without the need for third-party account creation by each group member

  4. Password-less Authentication
