This wallet is provide by Evernym. This is what their website says:

  • Why can I trust this?
    • We don’t own any of your information
      • Zip, zero, zilch. Connect.Me is built on Sovrin, which means you can use your credentials anywhere, even on a different app altogether.
    • Your info lives with you
      • Your information isn’t stored in the cloud, it lives in your pocket. So you’re the one in control of your data, where it goes and how it’s used.
    • State of the art encryption
      • Connect.Me creates unique, pairwise cryptographic connections to communicate. It's like inventing a new, unique language each time you speak with someone new— and only the two of you understand it.
