KnowMeNow is a re-usable digital wallet that holds all your personal identity information that you choose to secure and verify.
Thanks to our approach towards the decentralised
blockchain technology, you are in control over your personal data. To safeguard
this principle KnowMeNow does not make use of any form of central servers with
regards to your data. Any information (personal or otherwise) provided through
the app, is stored securely only on your smartphone device and nowhere else.
Once you upload your personal documentation, you can
choose to verify such information and receive a verified identity. You can then
use this verified identity to pass ‘Know Your Client’ (KYC) requirements of e-commerce
KnowMeNow partners, such as banks and gaming entities, at your own discretion when
such information is requested.
You can download
our app directly from the Google Play Store.

Since KnowMeNow is your personal identity wallet, you will need to upload some information and documentation onto the App. This will include as little as your email and phone number, up to a selfie and a photo of your identity document. The App was designed with simplicity in mind, having an intuitive flow that guides you through the KnowMeNow levels, each requiring different information/documentation.
Once you are satisfied with the information you have
uploaded to the app, you can have each level verified within minutes by a
simple click of a button. Once verified, you can use the App as a means of
sharing your KYC information with our merchant partners when such information
is requested. Nothing is shared without your absolute consent.
We must prove who we are almost every day when signing up
for a new products or services – whether it’s opening a bank account, betting

These various requests for proof of identity stem from
legal obligations that require many e-commerce entities to fulfil KYC
requirements. A Bank for example, or a betting company, will be responsible to
verify that you are truly who you say you are, and that you are also safe to do
business with. Hence, prior to providing their full services, they request various
onerous documents to be provided by yourself and checks to be made on their
side – commonly referred to as KYC documentation. Examples of documentation include
proof of address and identity documents.
With KnowMeNow, you can carry out a one-time KYC process
and re-share your verified KYC information with multiple KnowMeNow merchant

Each level represents a different level of KYC information
that can be uploaded onto the digital wallet. Not every business requires the

When sharing your information with merchants, the App
will let you know the level required. If you have not completed the required
level yet, you can do so in real time.
