Introducing a new program to help members of the Indiana Independent Venue Alliance and the Arts Council of Indianapolis reopen safely.
Bindle is a digital health pass that helps venues reopen safely and cost-efficiently.
It requires no special hardware and is designed to support speedy ingress.
Bindle stores COVID-19 testing and vaccination records on a decentralized platform with no “data lake” that can be hacked or tracked. Bindle’s rules engine then transforms these health credentials into entry passes that conform with a venue’s customized health policies for ingress.
How much does it cost?
Bindle is a free app for your patrons, employees and artists. And we intentionally priced our software very low for venues as part of our mission as a public benefit corporation.
Bindle is simple and affordable for businesses of every size.

Is onboarding expensive?
Onboarding is free and typically takes three business days.
Does Bindle share Personal Health Information?
No, Bindle does not share Personal Health Information with venues. Bindle’s software architecture is built so that users are the sole custodians of their own sensitive health data.
Does Bindle provide “verified credentials”?
For states and health authorities that offer QR-code based verified credentials, Bindle can ingest those verified credentials. For states like Indiana that do not offer access to verified credentials, users “self-attest” to the authenticity of their health credentials, digitally signing a legal attestation as to the authenticity of their claim. Here’s the language used for that attestation. For these self-attested health credentials, we explored a number of verification methods including AI, OCR, and manual review and ultimately decided all had flaws.
How can I protect my venue against fraud?
In addition to requiring users to legally affirm their vaccination and testing status under penalty of law, we’re regularly working on measures to make the self-attestation process as secure and safe as possible. You will see these features released regularly over the coming weeks and months, and we’ll communicate them as they’re released. The first feature, to be released in the beginning of October, includes a warning about the importance of providing authentic health information.
Are there best practices to mitigate fraud and maximize safety and efficiency in health verification?
Yes, please refer to our Best Practices guide.
