How it Works

Trust in a digital world

HooYu mobile application
  • In today’s digital world we're often forced to take trust for granted but that doesn’t mean that we have to. When you’re about to transact with someone and you want to be sure they are who they say they are, you can ask them to do a HooYu ID confirmation with you.

  • We help build trust and security

    HooYu is an easy and safe to use ID checking service that uses online and social media identity data, ID documents and facial biometric checks to prove that a person is who they say they are.

  • Once HooYu has checked and confirmed an identity, both parties receive an identity report. Then HooYu deletes the data used to make the identity confirmation and will only store or share information you have chosen to provide to the requestor.
