Security and privacy are our top priority
Bluink never gets access to your ID information.
To complete registration, your information is encrypted and sent to eID-Me's secure registration server for verification. Once verified, it is sent back to your phone and destroyed on the server.
Your information is only stored offline on your smartphone using strong encryption and your smartphone's security mechanisms. Only you have access and control over your information.
