It’s a simple step in your user experience. After your user submits the ID, Onfido guides the user to help them take the clearest selfie possible.
Onfido performs liveness checks to verify that the selfie is a live photo, and compares it to the photo in the ID. Seconds later, we calculate a score based on how similar the two faces are.
Not alike enough? We alert you to the possibility of impersonation fraud. But too alike? That could indicate a spoof attempt to pass off a photo of the ID as a selfie. We catch both in one step.
Use a selfie captured at sign-up later in your customer journey, too. Rather than two-factor authentication or a call center interaction, ask for a face with our Selfie Recheck service.
