Start integrating your app with the Self Network now, with free checks, our easy Quick Start guide and support from the Self Network community.
The commercial service will be available shortly. We will offer three ways to buy bundles of checks, to suit a range of applications. Plus we have options for bespoke requirements and enhanced support.
Today we're allowing Self members to store commonly requested information as facts within the Self data store and their phones, – things like name and date of birth – but alongside those you can choose to share metadata like 'age' or 'age range' and data sources like 'Passport' or 'Bank' with developers, to avoid needing to share personal data just answer the question they really needed an answer to. Like "Does Bob's drivers licence confirm he's between 25 and 70?"
But this is just the start; Developers building apps integrating with the Self Network can define the fields they would like to see in Self – so as more organisations join the Self Network, they will be able to attest to more and more facts that people want to verify. Organisations like educational and professional development establishments verifying details of qualifications in Self; insurance companies can verify that you've got a current car insurance policy; proof of marketing permissions for GDPR and CCPA; access to a restricted research report; user managed credit ratings; even whether you've got a valid ticket to a gig.
And all of this information stays purely on your device, always under your control.
Self is free to join as an individual user for personal use and the core features will always be free to you in the future.
Our business model is to charge the businesses using Self a small amount of money every time they ask to check a fact about you – such as your phone number, address, qualifications, passport number etc. – when you choose to connect with them using Self. They get certainty that the information you've shared is true, and you can be sure that your data isn't being used in ways you haven't explicitly agreed to.
In the future we may release new features, which may carry a charge, but these will always be optional.
