We’re proud of the added functionality and product flow that we’ve built in Civic Wallet. With this improved user experience now in place, we will be removing Civic Secure Identity from app stores by the end of November and asking these users to download Civic Wallet.
Starting October 22, 2020
You can download Civic Wallet (Android | iOS) and register an account. For existing Civic Secure Identity users, please register using the same email address. Once you are in the app, you may use it to scan any partner QR codes or create crypto accounts within the app. Further KYC may be required.
