Your passport chip provides the same information that is presented on the photo page of your passport. That includes your name and date of birth, as well as a higher quality version of your photo. When we store your passport details in your Yoti account, we also tag them with how they were obtained (read from the chip, or just from a photo taken by your phone’s camera). This is because the chip also contains a digital signature which proves the information is genuine and hasn’t been tampered with. For this reason, many organisations prefer to receive passport information that has been scanned from a chip, as they consider it more trustworthy.
