Document Verification

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.

Scale fast, with global coverage

Onfido is here to help you expand internationally. We cover documents across 195 countries, operate in 7 offices across the world and support key global scripts in addition to Latin.

And if you want to scale in volume, rather than in global reach? We help with that too. With Onfido’s machine learning, you won’t need to worry about overwhelming your internal team when volumes spike.

And we offer granular result breakdowns, so you can build automated workflows and improve customer experience. So you’ll cut the need for manual escalation in the first place.

How is Onfido’s Document Verification different?

Our machine-learning driven fraud techniques catch more sophisticated fraud attacks, and learn quickly to spot new fraud vectors.


The SDKs prevent failed submissions. Onfido detects blur and glare, and gives users live guidance—so users only submit once.

Document Experts

Our team of internal document experts are among the best in the world. They’ve partnered with Interpol to advise governments, border security and document printing companies—and now, you. Unlike other providers, Onfido does not charge extra when fraud experts handle a case.
