MWS: NIMC Mobile ID for Android

Developer's Description

Product Description

Welcome to NIMC MobileID the new Mobile Identity ecosystem, published by the NIMC as a part of its Mobile Web Services suite of Personal Identity Services.

Kindly uninstall any version you may have had prior to (older than) version 1.70.

If you have been issued a National Identification Number (NIN) by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), you are welcome to download this application to use as a complement to, or in place of the National Identity Card.

NIMC is focusing on ensuring that all citizens and legal residents are issued a digital identity.

To this end, there must also be a secure, trusted means of verifying that identity.

All you need do is download this app, enter your 11-digit NIN, your mobile number (you may only use a number associated to ONE NIN), set a PIN and you are done.

This app may also be used to verify the identity of others, or someone else may verify your identity.

That person MUST be known to the NIMC and must have purchased a subscription either directly from the NIMC or from one of its approved and licensed agents.

If you submit the QR Code in the app for verification, you will be able to see who verified you and when.

NIMC will very soon, in collaboration with FRSC, FIRS, NIS and NHIS be issuing Mobile Driver's Licenses, Digital Tax Clearance Certificates, Departure Cards and maybe even electronic health cards, conformant to and compliant with International Standards (ISO).

We use state-of-the-art end-to-end encryption to protect your identity.

A portal is available at https://dashboard.nimc.gov.ng where you may log in to check or print all the verifications you may have made, or to self-print your NIN Slip.

You will need your UserID and a PIN from the app (located in "I Need a PIN").

If anyone wishes to verify your identity using Proximity, YOU decide what information to share. Gone are the days when you need to submit your Passport, Driver's License or Voter's Card which contains much more information than the agent requires.

If the verifier DOES NOT need your date of birth, then don't show it! If the verifier needs extra information, you may enable the same on your profile. But we will NEVER share personal information such as Next of Kin, home address and so on.

NIMC has other platforms for that.


Your UserID is meant to protect your NIN. The ID Number is unique to your Smartphone and will auto-renew after 5 years.

*** Your UserID and NIN DO NOT EXPIRE ***

*** National Identity Card ***

Please direct any questions regarding the Polycarbonate card should be directed to cardservices@nimc.gov.ng.

We apologize but we are not allowed to respond to such requests via the email address supplied below.

mobileid@nimc.gov.ng is ONLY available to respond to questions about the MobileID App.

Innovation and Trends

Nigeria is not the first country in the world to issue a digital identity support application. The United States even has a Mobile Passport to enable US and Canadian Citizens enter the country without the need to present their passport.

Stay Tuned.
