Steps to verify documents
Allow your customers to verify their identity using simple document verification steps. Onfido Document Verification uses Atlas AI to assess the legitimacy of each document in seconds.
The user takes a photo of their ID using a smartphone or webcam. If using an NFC-enabled smartphone and document, they simply tap them together to unlock additional security features.
Automated ID verification
Atlas AI automates the document verification process by verifying the visual, data, and metadata elements of each document in seconds.
You get results in seconds showing a recommendation of ‘clear’ or ‘consider’. You can also configure custom logic to automate appropriate actions.
Stop fraud before it impacts your business
Our document verification is powered by Atlas AI. Built on data from tens of millions of global document verifications, Atlas is composed of 10,000+ micro-models that detect specific fraud attack vectors with precision.
Best-in-class capture experience
Our Smart Capture SDK is built with conversion in mind. All a customer needs to do is take a photo of their ID. Our image enhancement technology captures a burst of photos and automatically selects the best one. This reduces image rejection due to blur, glare, and camera positioning by up to 70%.
