Identity verification, sometimes referred to as identity proofing, is the process of verifying the identity of an end user to ensure their digital identity is tied to their real-life identity. This gives you greater assurance that your users truly are who they claim to be right from the start.
How Does Identity Verification Benefit My Business?
Balance Convenience and Security
Reduce frustration by making it simple for users to verify their identity without compromising security, in contrast to alternative and legacy approaches.
Prevent Fraudulent Activity
Strengthen security as you reduce the risk of account creation and takeover, as well as reducing risk for parties in downstream transactions.
Meet Regulatory Requirements
Maintain compliance with Know Your Customer (KYC) and other regulations while simultaneously supporting digital transformation initiatives.

How Identity Verification Works
Users are prompted to provide a selfie that is passively checked for liveness using ISO-certified technology.
Users scan the front and back of their government ID using their mobile device’s camera and the ID’s authenticity is checked using over 150 weighted analyses and machine learning.
The live selfie is compared to the photo of the user on the government ID and the results are linked to the user’s identity record.
Data-Centric vs. Document-Centric Identity Verification
Data-centric identity verification relies on asking users for information that can be compared to credible sources. Unfortunately, bad actors and software bots can easily obtain this data—including building synthetic identities that pass many legacy or alternative checks.
Document-centric identity verification gives you greater confidence with machine learning and selfie-matching with ISO-certified liveness technology to authenticate government IDs and verify your users’ identity.
Know Your Customers Right from the Start
Engage with your customers online with confidence by lowering the risk of fraud and account takeovers. Identity verification gives your business the right level of assurance that the customer you are interacting with is the real person they say they are during registration or opening an account.
