Identify genuine IDs and reduce online fraud, with AI-powered document verification

Document Verification

Onfido Document Verification lets your users scan IDs using their phone or computer

Create trusted user identities with Document Verification.

Traditionally, you have to rely on signals to trust a new user - on a device IP, a phone number, or credit database look-up. But these signals can also be abused by fraudsters.

This creates constant uncertainty, so you can’t focus on the user's experience, and instead start treating them with suspicion.

Onfido Document Verification lets your users scan a photo ID from any device, before checking it’s genuine.

Combined with Biometric Verification, it’s a seamless way to anchor an account to the real identity of a customer.
