How to create Agrello .ID?

Agrello ID is a next generation Digital Identity solution which takes advantage of the advanced capabilities of mobile devices and modern technology to offer a high level of convenience and security to the users.

There are two tiers of Agrello ID – Non Qualified and Qualified. The Non Qualified tier is a secure wallet for your digital keys which can be used to authenticate into the Agrello Platform as well as partner systems and manage your Agrello Account. The Qualified tier requires completing the identity verification process and links your identity information to your digital keys. It then allows you to authorise material transactions and digitally sign legally binding agreements with confidence.

Agrello ID is created, stored and accessed using your mobile device, meaning you can always have it with you. Your private keys never leave your device and are never exposed elsewhere, giving you the full ownership and control over your Agrello Digital Identity.

The creation of an Agrello ID is comprised of the following steps:

  1. Create and confirm your account
  2. Backup your account
  3. Secure your Agrello ID Keys
  4. Verify your identity

Prerequisites

Please install the Agrello ID app from the App Store or Google Play.

1. Create and backup your account

This step can be completed fully just using the Agrello ID mobile app. Alternatively, you can start the process from the web (https://contracts.agrello.io).

Create an account using the mobile app

  1. Open the Agrello ID app. You will be greeted with a prompt to create a new Agrello Account*. Press Create new account.
  2. Enter your email address and details.
  3. Enter your email address; it will be used to confirm your account as well as for notifications on significant actions related to your account going forward.
  4. Consider if you would like to receive Agrello tips and news – tick the box if so.
  5. Please review and agree to the Agrello Terms and Conditions.
  6. Press Create Account.
  7. Enter the Confirmation Code.
  8. The app will then prompt you for a Confirmation Code. The Confirmation Code will arrive in your designated mailbox shortly**. Please note that the emailed Confirmation Code expires in 15 minutes.
  9. Enter the Confirmation Code in the app and click Continue.
  10. Upon successful creation of the account, you will be greeted with a prompt to Backup your account – see the corresponding section further down.

2. Backup your account

  1. After the successful creation of a new Agrello Account, the Agrello ID app will present you with a 12-word phrase.
  2. Write down those 12 words (the order is important) and store them in a safe place. This is known as a “seed phrase” or a “recovery phrase” and can be used to restore/re-create your account, particularly if you ever lose your digital keys.

Please note that Agrello doesn’t hold any keys that can possibly allow accessing or restoring your account. This recovery phrase is the only means of restoring your account. You should ideally remember this phrase or store it in a safe place, as it will allow yourself or anybody who knows it to re-create your account and get a full access to it.

Notes

(*) At this point, the app is geared to hold a single Agrello Account and a single linked set of keys.

(**) Please contact support@agrello.io if the confirmation code didn’t arrive in your mailbox in 15 minutes.

3. Secure your Agrello ID keys

Upon proceeding, you will be prompted to enter PIN (Personal Identification Number) codes for your Identification Key and your Signing Key. Identification Key is secured by a 4 digit PIN code as an industry standard for authentication and authorisation purposes. Signing Key is secured by a 6 digit PIN code for an increased protection of your Digital Identity information and the use of the key for material transactions.

  1. Enter a PIN code for the Identification Key.
  2. Enter the same PIN code for the Identification Key to confirm.
  3. Enter a PIN code for the Signing Key.
  4. Enter the same PIN code for the Signing Key to confirm.
  5. Once completed, your keys get encrypted with your corresponding PIN codes, and stored securely.

Congratulations! At this point you have obtained a Non Qualified Agrello ID, which can be used to authenticate into the Agrello platform as well as partner systems and manage your Agrello Account.

You can now proceed to the next step (press Submit verification) or quit the app and continue the process from this point on later.

4. Verify your identity

  1. Enter the basic identity information.
  2. Enter your Name, as it appears in your official identity documents.
  3. Enter your Surname, as it appears in your official identity documents.
  4. Choose the Country that issued the official identity document you will use to verify your identity.
  5. Choose the type of the official identity document you will use.
  6. Follow through the identity verification process.
  7. Please acknowledge sharing your identity data with our trusted Identity Verification partner Veriff. You can read more about Veriff at veriff.me
  8. Present both your face and the front side/picture page of your chosen identity document in the frame.
  9. Present your face in the frame.
  10. Present the pages/sides of your identity document in the frame as requested.
  11. Upon finishing these steps, you will return to the Agrello ID app’s main screen and will see the message “Verification in progress”.
  12. The verification takes from few minutes to 24 hours, with most cases processed promptly and automatically. You will receive a verification confirmation email once the verification process has completed. The verification status in the app is updated automatically. If you haven’t received a verification result after 48 hours from the submission, please contact our support team at support@agrello.io

Congratulations! Upon successful completion of the verification checks, your Agrello Digital Identity gets the Qualified status. With the Qualified Agrello ID, you can now authorise material transactions and digitally sign legally binding agreements with confidence.
