Creating rich user profiles

With Privy, you can build rich user profiles without having to custody data. Sensitive user information like real names and addresses do not belong on-chain.

Privy secures this data off-chain and makes it available to your frontend.

Building personalized experiences

With Privy, you can delight your users with personalized experiences without taking on the burden of custodying their data.

Communicating with users

Want to send users notifications? Or do you want to set up a waitlist and email signed up users updates? User emails, phone numbers, telegram handles, and other contact methods are sensitive and shouldn’t be stored on-chain.

You can use Privy to securely collect this information from your frontend.

Linking user wallets together

Privy works cross-chain using wallet integrations to enable your users to connect data across different ecosystems. This enables you to build delightful, consistent experiences across chains.

Privy also makes it easy to link together wallets that belong to a single user without doxxing them or revealing the linkage.

Verifiable Credential store

Encode identifying user data according to the W3C Verifiable Credentials (VC) spec.

Unlike NFTs, VCs can be signed by the user themselves and associated (off-chain) to their wallet. Privy serves as a VC registry, where users store encrypted verifiable credentials, which are permissioned to be read only by appropriate parties.
