This eliminates the need to remember multiple usernames and passwords. This not only makes it more convenient for taxpayers, but also saves the government money by reducing duplicate logins and identity services.

"The idea for GOV.UK One Login was born out of the lessons
learned during the pandemic!"

With the majority of services moving online, it became evident that there were too many ways for people to set up accounts and sign in. This not only caused frustration for users, but also created unnecessary costs for the government. By streamlining the process into one platform, GOV.UK One Login is making public services more efficient and cost-effective.

Since its launch in June 2023, over 1.5 million users have successfully used GOV.UK One Login to access government services. This number is expected to grow as more public services join the platform. Currently, over 100 services are using GOV.UK One Login, including signing mortgage deeds, requesting DBS checks, and accessing tax information. This means that taxpayers can now easily and securely access a wide range of services with just one login.

"One of the key benefits of GOV.UK One Login is the
significant cost savings it brings!"

By eliminating duplicate login and identity services, the government estimates that it will save over £700 million in the next three years. This is a significant amount that can be used towards other important initiatives and services. Additionally, the streamlined process also saves taxpayers' time and effort, making it a win-win situation for everyone.

The security of personal information is a top priority for GOV.UK One Login. The system uses advanced encryption and authentication methods to ensure that users' data is protected. This means that taxpayers can have peace of mind knowing that their personal information is safe and secure.

"GOV.UK One Login is not only beneficial for taxpayers, but also
for government departments!"

With a single platform for login and identity services, departments can save time and resources by not having to maintain their own systems. This also allows for better collaboration and sharing of data between departments, making the government more efficient as a whole.

The success of GOV.UK One Login is a testament to the UK government's commitment to digital transformation.

I think it's a bit of a gamechanger.

Until next time ...
