Barclays Identity Service
We’ve been certified to verify your identity so you can use online government services wherever you see the GOV.UK Verify logo. Once you’ve been verified, you’ll have an identity profile with us that lets you sign in quickly if you want to file your Self Assessment tax return, view your driving record and much more.

If you already have a Barclays Identity Service profile, you’re all set to use government services wherever you see the GOV.UK Verify logo. If you need to make changes to the information you’ve given us, select ‘Update my Barclays Identity Service profile’.
Who can use Barclays Identity Service?
You don’t need to bank with us to get set up with a Barclays Identity Service profile – it’s available to all UK residents aged 18 and older who hold a UK passport and a UK photocard driving licence or provisional licence issued in Great Britain.
If you do bank with us, the process is the same. To protect your privacy and to keep your information secure, we don’t link your Barclays Identity Service profile with your Barclays customer record. This means you’ll also need to keep both up to date with any changes to your name, address or contact information in the future.
