Department of Vehicles New York State has launched New York Mobile ID, a highly secure digital version of a state-issued driver's license, or ID, on a smartphone.

New York Mobile ID is a secure digital form driver's license, student permit, or state-issued ID. It may be used during security screening at select airports across the country.

Mobile ID is designed for the convenience and security of New Yorkers and is available for iOS and Android users. Anyone with a valid state-issued driver's license, learner's permit or ID can download the secure Mobile app ID via Google Play or App Store.

“We are thrilled to provide New Yorkers with access to this cutting-edge technology, which brings convenience and added security to Mobile ID users,” said Governor Kathy Hochul. “Not only will New Yorkers be able to quickly show their ID, but they will also have control over the personal information they share.”


Through a partnership with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), New York Mobile ID (MiD) will be accepted at TSA checkpoints at nearly 30 participating airports nationwide, including all terminals at LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy airports.

This will allow New Yorkers to easily and securely verify their identity during airport security checks.

How to get MiD

New York residents can obtain the New York MiD by following a few simple steps:

  1. Download the New York MiD app from Google Play or App Store..
  2. Register the phone number of the device on which Mobile ID will be installed. A person's MiD can only be on one device at a time to protect their identity.
  3. Take a photo of the front and back of your physical ID (driver's license, ID card, or learner's permit) using your phone camera.
  4. Take a selfie. The app checks your photo and ID against information stored by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to ensure you are who you say you are.

Once your information has been verified, your MiD will be active and ready to be used wherever it is accepted.

How to use MiD

New York Mobile ID is currently accepted at select TSA terminals at participating airports nationwide. It can be used in any other location or organization that chooses to accept it, including other states and countries.

To use New York MiD at a TSA checkpoint, travelers simply scan their smartphone with an ID reader. The smartphone will then display what information is requested by the TSA. Only after the request has been authorized will the information be released to the Transportation Security Administration. Once TSA receives the information from New York MiD, an agency official will verify the passenger's identity and flight status. Participating TSA terminals are clearly marked with signage indicating that they accept digital identification documents such as the New York MiD.

The DMV works with a variety of businesses, organizations, associations and state government partners. Any organization that needs to verify a person's identity or age can begin accepting New York Mobile ID at any time. This gives businesses and organizations across the state the peace of mind that the ID provided to them can be authenticated in real time, resulting in a higher level of security for their business and customers.

MiD – confidential and secure

New York Mobile ID offers a convenient, contactless method of verifying your identity while protecting your personal information and privacy.

Personal information found on MiD is encrypted and is only accessible if the owner of the Mobile ID consents to its transfer. It is transmitted to the verifier via a secure digital connection. The user will never have to transfer his phone into the wrong hands.

The individual controls what data is shared. For example, when using Mobile ID to make age-restricted purchases such as tobacco or alcohol, the Mobile ID owner can prove their age without providing any other unnecessary information such as name, height or address.

The MiD app can only be unlocked using Face ID, TouchID or a six-digit PIN. Usage information, including where, when and what personal data the user has provided, is encrypted and stored only on the user's personal device. New York Mobile ID does not store or share information about when or where it is used.
