How do I share my digital certificate with a third party?

When you upload your work to Protect My Work, you'll receive a confirmation email like the one below:

Confirmation Email

Give the work reference number and work password, along with the link to our "Search Protected Work" page to any one that you want to verify your digital certificate to. They'll be able to see your digital certificate and certified work live on our website and be able to confirm it's legitimate and current.

The rest of your work remains private and secure, they'll only have access to that certificate and its data.

Most importantly, never give anyone your main account login details as this could compromise your work.

Additionally, certificates are also saved as downloadable PDF files in the My Protected Works page of your restricted access members area (see screenshot below).
