E-Authentication: Making Trust Possible


Home > Frequently Asked Questions

question icon What about privacy?

answer icon We respect your privacy - it is very important to E-Authentication. Your personal information is never shared with or stored by E-Authentication. You control which Identity Providers and online government services you use, and at no time are your user IDs provided to the government. We do use cookies, but they are session-based (temporary.) We do not store anything about you and do not track your activity. Our cookies are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and they are only needed if you wish to use our single sign-on feature - in other words, if you want to use the same credentials over and over again. You can view our official Privacy Policy.
