Choose the capture experience that’s right for you

Deploy static or video biometric verification using Onfido Studio. Navigate regulation while minimizing friction or maximizing security – it’s all about your needs.


A customer takes a selfie as part of their verification – we guide them through the process with real-time feedback. We run passive liveness analysis to assess if the selfie is legitimate.


A customer takes a short video selfie. We ask them to turn their head and say a sequence of three numbers to confirm they’re live and present, plus run the same passive analysis.

How it works

Biometric capture

After capturing their photo ID, a customer is directed to take either a static selfie or short video selfie.

Onfido Verification Suite Simple

AI-powered analysis

Atlas™ AI then generates a score based on the similarity of the faces seen in their selfie and ID. Additionally, it runs liveness checks to identify photos of photos and screens, 2D and 3D masks, and image upload manipulation.

Actionable results
