Document verification

Our document check creates confidence in a customer’s identity by verifying a photo ID. Powered by Atlas™ AI, we deliver results in seconds via API or in the Onfido dashboard.

Fraud Detection

Stop fraud before it impacts your business

Our document analysis is powered by Atlas AI. Built from the ground up over 10 years by a team of 200+ engineers and researchers, it’s based on our learnings processing tens of millions of global documents.

Atlas is composed of 10,000+ micro-models trained to detect specific fraud attack vectors with precision – and is constantly being retrained to keep your business safe.

Fraud is always evolving, and our world-leading document specialist team is constantly monitoring emerging fraud techniques and new document security features. They partner with Interpol to train border officials around the world, and train our AI with the same expertise.

Discover Atlas AI

Exceed expectations with a 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 short video and automatically selects the best available image of a customer and their document. This reduces image rejection due to blur, glare, and camera positioning by up to 70%.

If NFC is supported by the document, we guide customers to tap it against their phone to further improve conversion and security.

Our web, Android and iOS SDKs are simple to integrate thanks to our clear developer documentation and single API.

Maximize customer acquisition with global document coverage

Our document verification helps businesses meet customer identity regulation around the world. We support over 2,500 of the world’s documents and are always adding more – so customers aren’t turned away because their documents are unsupported. Atlas AI means we can scale to meet surges in demand at a moment's notice.

How it works

Document capture

A customer is directed to capture a document by taking a photo of it using their smartphone or webcam. If using an NFC-enabled smartphone and document, we direct them to tap their document on their phone so we can authenticate the document using additional security features.
