Community is defined as the condition of sharing or having certain attitudes and interests in common. At Onfido, our interest is to help everyone in the world easily and securely access the services they need digitally. At a time where physical access is particularly challenging given the need to isolate, there has never been a time where the world has needed digital access more than now. Whether it’s verifying volunteers, delivering financial relief, or even enabling online healthcare, we’re here to play our part in helping people easily and securely gain access to crucial services.
Launch of Onfido Coronavirus Relief Effort
We have launched an initiative to provide identity verification to organizations that are supporting the relief effort. We’re offering our fully-automated document and selfie service for no cost for the next six months for non-profits or charity organizations working directly on providing relief from the COVID-19 outbreak.
Examples of projects that we’ve started supporting include:
Onboarding of volunteers - the first partner to launch is Florence, who supply registered nurses, care workers and volunteers to care homes
Workers and volunteers helping with the relief effort - weekly volumes increased by 6x
We’ve also seen a significant increase in the usage of existing client industries, particularly:
Online healthcare and pharmacies - weekly volumes increased by 4x, as additional methods are deployed to switch to online consultations and on-demand delivery of medication
Remittance and payments - weekly volumes increased by 1.3x in usage of online remittance platforms as a way to combat inability to travel, and also avoidance of physical currency due to tangible nature and tendency to harbour germs
How can we support you
If you are not-for-profit or charity in healthcare, home service, education or others working directly on an effort to provide relief from the COVID-19 outbreak you can apply here.
Our mission is to create an open world where identity is the key to access. We have been huge beneficiaries of the tech community and are eager to return the favour and play our role in the relief effort.
