21 January 2024


pasby™ Phase 1 rollout commences on the 4th day of March 2024. With the upcoming release of this update, we are announcing the planned permanent deactivation of all issued pasby™ passes distributed during the demo run. This changelog update provides detailed information on the reasons behind this decision, what will happen to your pasby™, and the steps users need to take moving forward. Kindly remember we changed our name from BankID Nigeria to pasby™. So, when we refer to issued pasby™ here, we also mean your past BankID.

Reasons for Deactivation

  • Demo Run Completion: The demo run of pasby™ has successfully concluded, and as planned, all issued pasby™ will be deactivated permanently.

  • Non-existent national identity linking: Each demo pasby™ was created without any direct link to your identity in the state registry. All issued pasby™ will now be linked to your national identity as we advance. Don't forget this is the true reason we exist: To ensure you no longer have to duplicate your data across the entire digital economy landscape.

  • Security Enhancements: To ensure our users' highest level of security, we have decided to deactivate such demo pasby™ to prevent any potential misuse or unauthorised access.

When Will This Happen?

Our demo cycle began on the 13th day of March 2023. These changes will affect everyone whose pasby™ got issued at this time frame. It means you can no longer access our services with your current pasby™. The deactivation of each demo pasby™ commences on the 24th day of January 2024.

What Will Happen Now

  • Deactivation: All issued pasby™ from the demo run will be permanently deactivated.

  • Inaccessible pasby™: After the deactivation, such pasby™ will no longer be accessible or usable by their holders.

  • Data Protection: To protect user data, the pasby™ information will be securely stored and subsequently deleted in accordance with privacy regulations.

Next Steps for Users

  • Uninstallation: Users are advised to uninstall the pasby™ application from their devices as the passes will no longer be functional.

  • Data Cleanup: We recommend deleting any stored pasby™ pass data from your devices to ensure the complete removal of any sensitive information.

  • Getting a new pasby™: You can quickly regain access to our services by creating a new pasby™ with your real national identity right from the pasby™ mobile app in our upcoming Phase 1 mass rollout. The Phase 1 rollout commences on the 4th day of March 2023. Stay updated about this by visiting our webpage and following our socials.

  • Future Updates: Stay tuned for further updates and announcements regarding the next phase of pasby™ passes, which will bring exciting new features and improvements.

We appreciate your participation in the pasby™ demo phase. The planned permanent deactivation of the demo passes is necessary to prioritise user security and ensure a smooth transition to the next phase. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Announcing the Change of Name from BankID to pasby™

We were still regarded as representing the infancy of mankind. Our highly sophisticated culture was said to be simple and paralysed by inertia, and we had to be burdened with tutelage. - Kwame Nkrumah

Africa has come a long way since the scramble for independence and recognition of self-worth. Everything we need to work for ourselves is nothing more than a stone's throw away. In this ever-growing digital age of experimentation, we must look inwards for our digital solutions. Digital sovereignty is now a thing - so is Surveillance Capitalism.

Africa needs specific tools to protect industries and personnel at home. This is why we exist. - Finsel DGI Founder, C. Jackmay


We are excited to announce a significant change in our product's identity. As of today, our product name will transition from BankID to pasby™. This change was driven by our vision of creating a barrier-free digital Pan-Africa where innovation takes centre stage.

With the new name, pasby™, we will continue to provide the same secure and reliable single sign-on experience with seamless digital identification services we were founded to achieve. All existing users of the alpha product can rest assured that the transition will not impact their user experience or access to our services.
