Interac verification service —
like showing your ID, digitally

Confirm your identity quickly and easily. 

Interac verification service is a secure and fast way to confirm your identity when applying for products and services like bank accounts and phone plans, or accessing your credit score or insurance benefits online. Instead of showing multiple pieces of identification, use Interac verification service with participating businesses from your computer or mobile device.

The service uses personal information held by Scotiabank or another major Canadian financial institution to confirm your identity. 

Interac verification service uses strong security tools to protect your information from being accessed or misused. This information will never be shared without your consent.
