Members of TrueProfile.io are encouraged to unite their digital identities, including their verified documents, in one decentralized place, the uPort app. From here, TrueProfile.io’s members can regulate who they share their personal details with on a granular level.
The association between TrueProfile.io and uPort was established due to the recognition of shared values between the two entities. Both TrueProfile.io and uPort utilize the blockchain to give their users complete authority over how their personal data is accessed, owned and shared.
“TrueProfile.io has developed the integration with uPort as part of our ongoing commitment to giving our members the best, most secure and convenient verification services that they can use throughout the duration of their career. uPort enables us to enhance the portable aspect of our TrueProofs and by maintaining this through the use of blockchain, our members have the freedom to have authority over how their information is stored and who it is shared with.”
– TrueProfile.io’s Chief Digital Officer, René Seifert
In practice, TrueProfile.io’s members can simply download the uPort app on a connected device, such as a mobile phone.
By scanning the QR code found on their verified TrueProofs, these verified documents will be added to their uPort ‘wallet.’
Once added, the TrueProofs can be quickly and easily shared with selected contacts at the user’s discretion, returning the control of digital identity back to the user.
“We are excited to partner with TrueProfile.io to enable the portability of employee verifications. TrueProfile.io’s members will be empowered to manage their own professional credentials in a highly secure way. This is a very valuable use case for decentralized identity, one that we expect will be transforming the future of workplaces.”
– uPort’s Chief Operating Officer, Alice Nawfal
