Welcome to the Future of Identity

Simple - Secure - Trusted


Features you will love

Simple Setup

You only require your full National Identification Number (NIN), your Mobile Number and a PIN to protect the app, shikena!


You and only YOU decide what information you wish to share for verification. You need to present an ID that does not require your age or Nationality? No problem, we have you covered.


The Security of your Personal Identity is critically important to us. Your data is encrypted at all times. You will ALWAYS know who verified you, right within the app and you can lock it down with your biometrics, if the Smartphone supports it.

This Mobile app is presented to you by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria

Verification with ease

Enrol once, be identified for life!

We provide a secure means of being verified at the click of a button. No need to carry lots of cards around, that can get lost, stolen or damaged. If ever you lose your device, you can simply report it lost, log in from another device and block anyone from using it.

Do you need to hire a driver, house help or any other domestic help (or even your staff)? Tell them to go get their NIN - it is their civic responsibility to do so!

You may then purchase a subscription (yes, we have small ones for Individual use as described below) and simply scan either their own Proximity ID or the new NIN slip, also issued by NIMC.

Oh, and the best part... you don't need to worry about a hard copy for your records. Simply log into the support portal and download (or print out) the PDF for that verification.

Please note - No one may verify your Identity without the person being both known to the NIMC, and themselves having a NIN. That way, you always know who verfied you, when and the type of verification.

We have that too

Your National ID Card is ready as soon as you get your NIN.

No more waiting forever for the Plastic Card to arrive! You may still request one (for a token fee), but if you are eligible (16 years of age and above), your National ID Card is available at the click of a button.


Unified Credentials

NIMC is working with other fabulous agencies to ensure that you no longer need to submit your biometrics everytime you need a Government service.

With your NIN and this app, very soon, you will be able to simply provide the UserID in the app to the relevant agency, telco, Bank or anywhere your ID is required, and the agency can carry out their respective function without the age-old frustrations.

We believe that YOUthe citizen should be empowered to link your TIN with your NIN, your Driver's license with the NIN and every other important number that you obtain from the various Government agencies, so that Givernment can serve you better.

For example, we hope to integrate a mobile Driver's license in the near future to international standards, but that is the exclusive purview of FRSC. They will be responsible for the issuance of the token, its administration and so on. We just provide the 'wallet' for you to keep it in - securely.

You are in control

Show only the identity that is required by law - nothing more.

Gone are the days when you need to submit an ID for a specific purpose, that has no bearing on your nationality or age.

Gone are the days when you have no idea where the 'photocopy' of your ID turns up in the wrong places.

and gone are the days when you don't even know the identity of the person identifying you. No more.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

For anyone who has a Smartphone, the app is FREE. If you don't have a Smartphone, you may still download your NIN slip in the new format.

What then are the Payment Plans for?

Anyone wishing to verify the credentials of another person, MUST purchase a subscription and be themselves known to the NIMC.

You the owner of the ID will ALWAYS have to approve any verification AND you will be notified when such takes place, and by whom.

Can I change my plan later?

Once you purchase a subscription, you may upgrade to a higher one (simply means more verification credits).

Do I need a contract?

Your NIN, UserID in the app and of course the subscription are all you need, because NIMC will always know who the verifier is.
