Onfido has partnered with India’s largest shared mobility platform, Zoomcar, to verify drivers across seven major cities in India. 

Zoomcar launched 5 years ago and now has 3,000 cars across 30 Indian cities including Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore. With a strong focus on the mobile experience, Zoomcar allows users to rent cars and cycles by the hour, day, week, or month.  

Onfido’s swift and secure identity verification technology enables Zoomcar to safely rent cars to its users. With just a smartphone, Zoomcar users can upload a selfie and a photo of their identity document to complete the verification process, allowing more people to easily join the service and adding an additional layer of security.

Zoomcar chose Onfido for its machine learning and biometrics-based fraud detection, implementing Onfido’s Facial Check for even more confidence that the right person was getting the Zoomcar keys. 

“Onfido is a fantastic partner to work with” said Rajesh Bysani, CPO at Zoomcar. “Their mobile-first document and facial verification is helping us to achieve our core mission of convenient car rental, while improving the safety of our platform. It benefits everyone”.
“We are very happy to be supporting Zoomcar’s vision for simplified car rental in India,” said Nikhil Saigal, Country Manager - India at Onfido.  “We pride ourselves on delivering an identity verification experience that allows our partners to grow while keeping their platforms safe, and we’re excited to be working with Zoomcar to help them achieve that.”
