How does Validentity work to verify identity?
Accurate data extraction
Validentity accepts thousands of official ID documents from over 200 countries and territories. The ID data is accurately extracted from these documents using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology.
Document authenticity check
The hybrid approach uses automatic and manual processes to check the security features of each unique ID document to ensure it's genuine.
An anti-spoofing liveness test is used to verify that the image captured shows a natural person, not a spoof generated by an automated bot, mask or photo.
We compare the image of the liveness test to the identification document provided to ensure a match. There will always be a human involved in this face-matching process.
Information collection for onboarding
The tool can be tailored to gather additional information required when onboarding pension members and customers.
Email and telephone number verification
Email addresses and mobile telephone numbers collected during the process are verified and supplied.
