HM Passport Office is the administrative department in charge of dispensing passports for British citizens. Headquartered in Liverpool, it is the sole issuer of the British passport.
Formally established in 2006, HM Passport Office consults with the General Register in order to provide the vital documentation. Every year, British citizens both at home and abroad are issued 5 million passports, making the Passport Office one of the busiest and most efficient departments within the network of UK government departments.
In spite of recent backlog setbacks in the face of blanket IT upgrades, HM Passport Office remains generally well-regarded and reputable for its high standards of service.

Her Majestys Passport Office (HMPO) is a sub-department of the UK Home Office, which deals with the provision and renewal of passports to British citizens. Having operated in one form or another for over a century, the modern passport office has its headquarters in Liverpool together with call centres and regional offices in Southport and London.
In early summer 2014, the future viability of the present structure of HMPO was brought into question when massive backlogs were exposed to the outrage and concern of those who had booked travel. An unidentified whistleblower within the organisation gave evidence to the press that boxes of applications have simply been left unattended for months at a time. Lengthy processing times, especially among overseas applications, have been reported as ranging up to an entire year.

But in the years after the social network first enabled two-factor authentication, Facebook began to use the phone numbers users had provided for other purposes - eventually, by September 2018, going so far as to update the language used in the prompt, adding the words and more' to the end of a statement that had previously read, simply: Add your phone number to help secure your account.' Now, users who once added their phone number for security are faced with a privacy setting that asks them who can look them up using that number. The options are 'everyone', 'friends of friends', or 'friends'. There is no choice to ban that use. Similarly, Facebook shares that information with Instagram, encouraging users to update their profiles on its sister service if they have a new phone number on the main Facebook app.
In September, Gizmodo reported that Facebook also uses that security information to target adverts: if a business has a phone number for a potential customer, they can upload that number and target that customer with adverts - even if the number is only in Facebook's systems because of the security policies. This week's wave of criticism was sparked by Jeremy Burge, the editor of emoji reference site Emojipedia. Burge, who is the moderator of Emojipedia's Facebook page, was required to enter his phone number because of the number of followers that page has, and rapidly became frustrated with the lack of privacy he was afforded as a result.'I'm usually one to give benefit of the doubt,' Burge said, 'but it's so clear Facebook sees phone number as the way to unify its data sets (FB: email, Insta: username, WhatsApp: phone #) and this sort of thing only gives them less credibility when it comes to ever providing a number.' Others joined in the criticism. Antonio Garcia Martinez, a former Facebook product manager, said the choice was 'not just bad, it's dumb.
The fraction of users that have two-factor authentication enabled must be small, so the usage gain is minimal, while the PR risk is huge. Dumb trade-off.' In a statement, Facebook addressed some of Burge's criticisms: 'We've been hearing questions about two-factor authentication and phone number settings on Facebook. Two-factor authentication is an important security feature, and last year we added the option to set it up for your account without registering a phone number. Separately, the 'Who can look me up?' settings are not new and are not specific to two-factor authentication. 'In April 2018, we removed the ability to enter another person's phone number or email address into the Facebook search bar to help find someone's profile.
Today, the 'Who can look me up?' settings control how your phone number or email address can be used to look you up in other ways, such as when someone uploads your contact info to Facebook from their mobile phone. We appreciate the feedback we've received about these settings and will take it into account.'
Despite the recent difficulties, the Passport Office continues to process many thousands of applications successfully year by year.
The Passport Office general enquiries helpline number is 0300 222 0000.
