GOV.UK Verify is the new way to prove who you are online, so you can log in to government websites safely.
It’s simple and free to register for GOV.UK Verify with Barclays – and you don’t need to bank with us.
GOV.UK Verify is a new way to log into Government websites and replaces Government Gateway. When you register, a Government-certified company verifies you’re who you say you are and gives you an identity profile.
You can then use your profile to log into any GOV.UK website with the GOV.UK Verify logo. So you’ll have just one username and password to remember, not half a dozen.
Barclays is certified by GOV.UK to verify identities. We do this by asking you some simple questions and carrying out a range of identity checks. You don’t need to bank with us to register for an identity profile, but if you do, we can use some information from Online Banking to speed things up.
Afterwards, we carry out a quick identity check every time you log into a GOV.UK website to make sure it’s you – not someone else.
We keep your personal information safe and secure, and we never share financial information with GOV.UK. We don’t know which GOV.UK website you’re using when you log in with your Barclays identity profile.
Anyone can create an identity profile with Barclays1, but if you do bank with us, your profile is separate to your Online Banking account.
You can use a Barclays identity profile with a wide range of GOV.UK websites. Create your profile by going to a site you already use, or want to use.
Go to the GOV.UK website you want to use and select the ‘sign in using GOV.UK Verify’ option. Follow the on-screen instructions and when asked to choose a company to verify your identity, select Barclays.
We’ll ask you some simple questions to verify that you’re who you say you are – not someone pretending to be you. We may also need details from some identity documents to help with our checks.
