Online ID verification

You can securely provide your ID and proof of address documents with our online tool in less than 5 minutes. There's no need to go into a branch. You just need a computer with a webcam, or a mobile phone with a camera, and your documents.

When you can use online ID verification?

You can use our online tool when applying for a new product, if:

  • you've received your unique reference by text message or on-screen during your application
  • you have all of the required documents with you

Existing customers can use the tool, if:

  • you've received a letter or text from us with your unique reference
  • you have the required documents and they match the details we hold for you

How it works

Before you start, make sure you have the required documents with you and your details are up to date.

1. Initial check

Answer a few quick questions about your device and documents to make sure the journey is right for you.

2. Upload a selfie

Take a photo of yourself against a clean background. Follow the instructions on the screen.

3. Upload your ID

Take clear pictures of your ID documents and upload them.

4. Upload proof of address (if requested)

Take a clear picture of your proof of address document and upload it. We don't always ask for this.

Tips for successful document upload

Make sure the images you take:

  • are clear - all the text is easy to read
  • don't have glare or reflections
  • show the whole page

If your documents are not accepted online, you can take them to your local branch. Please check which documents we can accept in branch, as they can differ.
