Verimi develops its offering as a trust platform

Verimi simplifies login to existing user accounts and secure privacy-compliant use of digital identity with third-party providers. The new features of release 1.2 at a glance:

  • Users can deposit their IBAN verified with Verimi. Verimi thus supports direct debit and takes the first step towards offering payment services.
