Get Verifiable Credentials
Published Mar 15 2024 01:00 PM 1,422 Views

A new Account Verification will be required to access Partner Center programs. All participants in the Windows Hardware Program on Partner Center will be required to complete Verifiable Credentials or they will be blocked from accessing the Hardware Program. Verifiable Credentials (VCs) is an open standard for digital credentials.

The Primary Contact for your account will be the initial individual required to obtain Verifiable Credentials. We ask that you take action now to confirm the Primary Contact information on your account in Partner Center is accurate and current.

Please note the information you provide to obtain Verifiable Credential will be verified by Au10tix Ltd, an industry leader engaged to support this effort. You will not need to disclose the information with Microsoft.

To complete your Verifiable Credential, you will need to install the Microsoft Authenticator app on your mobile device and follow the instructions. Microsoft Authenticator will store your Verifiable Credential. You will need a current and valid government ID in the physical form. The name on the government ID must match the Partner Center Primary Contact. For security purposes there are fixed time limits in the steps to obtain Verifiable Credentials. You may need thirty (30) minutes to complete the steps.

When you receive the Verifiable Credentials request from Partner Center, we urge you to complete the steps as soon as possible to avoid losing access to the Hardware Program. If you have any questions or issues, please reach out to our support team. For details on how to contact support, see Get support for Partner Center dashboard issues - Windows drivers | Microsoft Learn.

Thank you for your cooperation.
