Welcome to the Portabl product and API docs. Our goal is to help you understand Portabl and how you can integrate it into your environments and experiences to secure and simplify user verification and build your own ID networks.

Our goal is to make your rollout of Portabl as seamless as possible whether you’re using us for full verifications, step ups, building your own “remember me”, or using other combinations of our verification and credentials functions with your existing auth, ID, risk, and orchestration tools.

Everything we’ve built is modular. Depending on your use case, you can have Portabl integrated in as little as a week.

What will you find in this documentation?

This documentation is designed to help you understand how to integrate with Portabl in a way that best suits your needs and provides background context for how we approach simplifying KYC, how we're building "reusable id" based on new and emerging technology, and where we see the role of ID in open banking and embedded finance.

Whether you're a developer, an enterprise architect, or a product owner, you'll find detailed guides, resources, and references to help you link your system to Portabl and make the most of its capabilities.

About Portabl

Hi! We’re Portabl. We’re an identity reusability & verification startup based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with a fully-remote team.

Our mission is to make even the most complex user verification process feel like single sign-on anywhere in the financial services landscape. To do this, we’re building on emerging global standards in cryptography and reusable identity enable users to safely “BYO” identity.

Specifically, Portabl applies advancements in Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) and Verifiable Credentials (VCs) to the rigors of consumer-permissioned data and open finance.

Historically, consumer financial identity information is siloed across every financial app and service. It is not real-time, user-controlled, or reusable on-demand. As a result, identity information is fragmented and vulnerable.

We have wallets for payments and have grown to love how payment methods “follow us around” the internet. Why not finally do it with identity and make verifications safer, easier, and higher trust.

Fintechs, infrastructure providers, and payment ecosystems use Portabl to simplify user onboarding, downstream verifications, and build secure data sharing ecosystems with partners and affiliates.

We’re backed by some of the best in the industry, including Harlem Capital, 6th Man Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, Dorm Room Fund, and Pear VC. We’re supported and advised by senior executives and early members of the Plaid, Paypal, and Venmo teams.
