Connecting millions to government services safely and securely

How to make millions of people use multi-factor authentication for the first time.


Background

login.gov is an identity provider for government agencies looking to provide their users with a safe and secure way to log in to their applications. With one login.gov account, users can sign in to multiple government agencies. login.gov also offers identity proofing (making sure you are who you say you are) and a myriad of multi-factor authentication options.

During my time on login I’ve worked mostly on identity proofing challenges, standing up a design system to support our applications, and multi-factor authentication support.
