Accurate and automated AI identity verification

Why Atlas?

What makes Atlas special

Atlas AI is built on 10 years of research by a team of 200 engineers to solve one problem: identity fraud. Our unique, micro-model approach is built to reduce bias and verify 95% of customer biometrics in seconds, delivering fair, fast, and accurate AI identity verification for your business.


Ethically built to reduce bias

Bias isn’t acceptable, especially when it comes to something as important as identity. Atlas is trained ethically, using global datasets that reflect real-world variations in ethnicity, age, and gender. We work with leading privacy bodies such as the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) to train our AI, and have been recognized by Gartner and CogX for leadership in algorithmic bias mitigation.

Fully automated identity verification

AI-powered automation handles surges in volume when manual processes can’t keep up. With Atlas, our verifications are consistently fast, whether you’re onboarding ten or ten thousand people. Atlas processes 95% of biometrics verifications in under 10 seconds. It's how we've helped global businesses like Chipper Cash reduce the time to onboard new customers by 35%.

Atlas AI Fast

Architecture built for accuracy

Quickly identify and stop fraud attacks with AI trained and tested by our in-house Fraud Lab. Our unique micro-model architecture combines over 10,000 machine learning models trained to detect specific fraud markers. Our micro-models analyze pixel-level variations in document color, shape, and texture to accurately assess authenticity. Atlas detects up to 50% more document fraud than approaches using generalized models.

Onfido takes privacy seriously and is continually looking at ways to manage and mitigate data protection and security risks for you and your customers. Where possible we pseudonymize, aggregate, and de-identify information to protect users’ privacy and reduce security risks.

Onfido takes algorithmic bias very seriously — we train our data on balanced datasets accounting for real-world variations in race, gender, and age, and we have developed our approach to training data in partnership with the Information Commissioner’s Office in the UK.

At Onfido, security and compliance are essential to our mission. We are SOC 2 Type II compliant, ISO 27001 Certified, engaged in an ongoing bug bounty program with YesWeHack, and ensure that our micro-models are trained in a secure environment.
