Our parent company Ahead Solutions UK has earmarked a stock of anti-bacterial hand sanitizer for You ID Me customers.
As people have raced buy these products, the shelves for hand sanitizer sprays and gels in many shops and stores across the UK have been left empty. Many who would really benefit from these products have had wasted journeys as they've traveled from store to store.
This product contains a substantially higher percentage of alcohol than cheaper, standard hand sanitizing gels found in supermarkets and pharmacies throughout the UK, which typically contain 60 - 70% alcohol.
You'll need to enter your You ID Me number to be able to buy this product so please have this handy.

After more than a few people signed up to our Platinum with Alerts plan without first having purchased an ID product from us we've had a rethink and have decided, why not?
So we're making a few alterations to the You ID Me website which will enable existing and new customers to benefit from a free one off emergency ID product when they sign up to our Platinum with Alerts paid for by a a yearly direct debit payment and, they'll also get 33% off their subscription fee.
Subscribers that pay monthly will also benefit from a free emergency ID product every year - so technically they;ll never need to pay for an emergency ID product ever again!
Here are the pages to look at if you are interested in learning more about the offers.

Here's our exciting new range of medical alert bracelets that are made right here in the UK.
Every bracelet makes it completely clear that the wearer's medical information is inside the bracelet.
When a first responder peels back the adjustable hook and loop fastener they instantly see the waterproof ID card on which the wearer can write their concise medical information and emergency contact numbers.
Flip it over and they'll get immediate access to the wearer's more detailed and updateable You ID Me profile where the wearer can store: -
Every product ships with our You ID Me Gold Plan free for life. Users may upgrade to Platinum plan by means of a low monthly direct debit payment to unlock premium features such as the emergency alert service which alerts their emergency contact's phone to let them know they have a problem.
The Medical ID Inside range is available in 3 sizes and 5 colours catering for anyone with any or multiple medical conditions.

You ID Me's Helmet ID Tag is the most advanced on the market . Why?
There are literally scores of helmet ID tags on the market. Some you have to call an 0800 number in the event of a crash or emergency (can you imagine that in the early hours of the morning!). Some that you have to tear open. Some that have print so small you might struggle to see it. Most are defunct the moment your contact changes their mobile number!
Rider Identity Fast
The You ID Me Helmet ID Tag Sticker is easy to see and very intuitive. It features a unique ID and a QR code.
Once activated, in the event of an accident or emergency a medic simply enters your ID at You ID Me or even faster, just scans the QR code with their smartphone and your registered information will appear on their device.
There's no app to download and mess about with and that goes for tag owners and paramedics alike.
Emergency Contacts Alerts
You ID Me is the UK's leading emergency ID and alert system; it quickly provides your emergency ID (and lots of other vital information) to the right people and it can alert your emergency contacts - straight to their phone in an emergency.
To ensure your tag alerts your emergency contacts automatically you'll need to be on the Platinum Plan. You can pay for this for the year or by a low monthly Direct Debit - there's no contracts and no minimum term. Bob's your uncle, as they say.
Ours is the ONLY helmet ID tag where you can update any aspect of your profile at anytime. If your emergency contact changes their contact number no problem. If the GP puts you on a new medication no problem. If you change your name through marriage or by choice to avoid the law no problem - well that actually might be..!
Just log in to the You ID Me system . Change whatever you want and submit. There. Done.
No need to order a new tag, at cost and inconvenience.

We hear the phrase "two edged sword" all the time don't we?
Well I was thinking about the double protection of our Platinum Plan thinking... actually it's triple protection, but since there is no such thing that I know of as a triple edged sword (I'm not into gaming!) we'll stick with the two.
I was creating this simple infographic over the weekend to articulate the benefits of the You ID Me Platinum Plan and double edged sword came to mind and then the double protection idea which I think works better.
To show two different mobile phones next to one another with the ownership labels above I thought worked quite well. But as always I put it to some You ID Me members to see what they thought.
One said "That's the most concise I have ever seen it". Another said "Looks great." Whilst another said "Very easy to understand." So three out of three then on this occasion - they don't always agree!
So I'd be really interested to learn what anyone else thinks. Let me know your thoughts by using the comments below or getting in touch through email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We're a small team working extremely hard to ensure that carrying ID is secure, easy and affordable for our customers.
