A European alternative for social accounts such as Facebook or Google developed by parties in the internet industry.

ID4me is based on the systems for domain names and email addresses. Several large domain name registries and registrars, including Nominet (UK), DENIC (DE) and GoDaddy support this initiative.

Users can obtain an ID4me Identity with internet providers offering this service, such as InternetX and 1&1 IONOS. The identity remains portable. That means you can select and change your provider.
