Identity Hub

An introduction to the Litentry Identity Hub

What is the Identity Hub (ID-Hub)?

The Identity Hub is the front-end product of the Litentry Protocol. It is a decentralized Web3 personal data management tool designed for users to aggregate and manage their personal data among blockchains and decentralised storage systems and provide data access to 3rd party dApps to maximise personal identity value without compromising privacy & anonymity.

The problem Identity Hub (ID-Hub) solves

ID-Hub is a solution to the issue of Web2 services violating user data rights and breaching privacy. It allows users to control who can access their data without revealing their personal identifiable information or root accounts. It enables service providers to offer targeted services based on the personal data that is actually authorized by users. When a dApp uses ID-Hub to access user data, it is following the correct process for protecting user data rights. On the other hand, if users create identities on ID-Hub, they can be assured of their personal data rights. The ID-Hub protects personal data rights and restores an anonymous yet richly identifiable web browsing experience.
