New UtahID is coming for Public

The new UtahID for external public users will go live in March. This will not be tied to applications, but will be visible to individuals if they go to mylogin.utah.gov. Most people will see the new look and feel if they are updating their UtahID profile information or creating a new profile. Users will continue to see the old login screen when logging into applications. If you have any questions or need help, please contact us at dts.utah.gov

We are off the mainframe!
