It took us a while but we finally did it. Account firewall has just been rolled out and is now available for everyone! This great feature lets you secure your account from unauthorized access originating from countries you never travel to. It is no longer sufficient to just know your password, intruders must also be present in your country of residence. If you are planning a travel abroad – just login into your account prior to departure, adjust firewall configuration and you’re all set!
Firewall can be configured on Account dashboard. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and expand it.
We’ve taken precautions to avoid locking you out of your account accidentally. By default, when you enable firewall, your current country from which you’re accessing My ID HUB service is selected in your configuration and can’t be removed. You can only remove a country if you’re not physically present in it.
While we were at it, we also improved your Account Audit. You no longer need to scroll through a table full of data. It is now neatly organized in expandable rows.
Notice this green portion of the table – this is your current session. This way you know which actions were taken since you logged in last time and differentiate them from actions performed in the past.
Enjoy improved security and as always, feel free to drop us a line of feedback once you test-drive it.
We have just published a new version of Windows Store app that includes features you’ve been asking for:
- Identities can now be created, changed and deleted from the app
- Changed identity card popup and optimized interface for touch
- Account activity history is now available from the app without a need to use web interface
Download today from Microsoft Store.
Let us know what you think on the feedback page.
Hi developer community!
We’ve put together some treats for you:
- Public My ID HUB API client has finally arrived. A lot of thinking and designing went into this piece of software. You can get it via NuGet package and start using today.
- On top of that we want to publish our private library used to read MaxMind GeoIP databases. It is available via NuGet package as well. If you haven’t heard of MaxMind – please check them out. They got a few treats of their own for you as well.
We would love to hear from you. Please drop us a line with feedback if you like or don’t like the packages.
Today is a great day to be My ID HUB customer! We are pleased to announce release of two applications at the same time – Windows Store and Windows Phone!
These are preview releases thus their functionality is limited. They provide convenient read-only access to your data stored inside My ID HUB service from your tablet or phone running Microsoft software. They do not support modification of data yet but rest assured this is a temporary inconvenience.
Here are some of the screenshots from Windows Store app:

Windows Store application can be downloaded here.
Windows Phone application is available here.
In the spirit of constant improvement we strive to make My ID HUB interface look appealing. We’ve revamped entire set of icons and are putting final touches to make sure everything fits together naturally. Here are some of our favorite icons:
Hope you are as excited about this refresh as we are!
In the last few weeks we’ve been working to gain insights into technical aspects of My ID HUB services operation. We have instrumented the web site to measure responsiveness and reliability. This is huge step towards continuous improvement based on real user telemetry. No internal lab testing can provide as much information as our customers who use this service every day. Thank you for using this service and in return we promise to keep pushing the quality up.
Last week we’ve been busy streamlining user registration experience with My ID HUB service. We identified an opportunity to reduce number of steps by combining user agreement page with sign up page. Now it takes one button click to start using the service.
Among other things, we’ve clean-up our API in preparation for public documentation. So all you developers out there – get ready! In coming days we will open and document our REST web services for you to consume and build great and secure apps. Sneak-peek is available here:
UPDATE as of 7/5/2015
Services listed below have been removed:
New service end-point was brought up instead:
New end-point talks RESTful protocol is much simpler than legacy SOAP end-point. It comes with a client available via NuGet for folks building applications for My ID HUB service.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
After long development and thorough testing My ID HUB service was unveiled to the public a few days ago on October 27 2014. This is a solid product ready for prime time. It is packed with features and the best part they are all FREE. There will be more information shared in coming days and weeks as the service continues to evolve and grow.
It is great to be here! Let’s get to know each other.
