Online ID card check

Simply verify your client’s ID on the go


Online ID card verification is an important tool in verifying the identity of a customer, but when misused can result in criminals exploiting gaps in processes and lapses in security.

 
 
 

Improve security, reduce ID fraud

Securing identity cards is a common concern for all countries in the world. Arguments to justify reinforcing it revolve mostly around security concerns: to counter terrorism, ID document fraud or identity theft, for instance. Since their inception, ID cards have undergone considerable transformation. However, fraudsters too have changed and are becoming increasingly skilled at producing false identity cards. Verifying the ID cards’ authenticity is now of more importance than ever.

Scalable precision in verification

Despite having all security features in place, some fraudsters still manage to reproduce very good looking false identity cards. It is not always possible to detect ID card fraud with the naked eye. That is why an automated ID checking service is essential. Especially for companies that onboard their customers remotely and in large quantities. And the speed and precision of an automated tool cannot be compared with performing the same actions manually, saving your company time and costs.

Finally, it develops a relationship of trust and improves your client onboarding and enrollment processes. An ID check plays a key role in the KYC process, while still providing a hassle-free online experience for your customers.

Not one standard for verification

Sadly, not all countries issue ID cards that comply with international standards. The European Union passed a regulation aimed at strengthening the security of identity cards. EU member states must comply within a two-year time frame and will need to issue new cards that contain two fingerprints, the card holders’ photo, and a secure contactless chip. Unfortunately, as there are so many different models of ID cards around the world, there is not one standard for checking ID cards.

Security features in national ID’s

Depending on the country and model, there are different features to verify the authenticity of a national ID card, such as:

  • Machine-Readable Zones
  • Special inks and fonts
  • Bar codes
  • Microprinting
  • Embedded chips
  • Elements thats respond to lighting

Many identity cards are based on these security standards. The sole purpose of all these features is to discourage document fraud. An ID card verification tool can automatically recognise that all security items are in order and have not been tampered with.
