Own your digital identity
Discover decentralized identity, a new way to provide ownership of personal data.
Microsoft believes everyone has the right to own their digital identity, one that securely and privately stores all personal data. This ID must seamlessly integrate into daily life and give complete control over data access and use.
Identity has reached a pivotal point
Today your identity includes more data than ever before, but you don’t own it. Microsoft is partnering with the community to develop a new identity system that gives you control and preserves privacy.
