In addition to continuing with the rollout of GOV.UK Verify across central government, we also continue to explore the applications for GOV.UK Verify for secure citizen identity verification in both the wider public and private sectors. We are in discussions with our identity provider partners over plans to expand GOV.UK Verify into non-government services.
