Fraud detection

Digital identity verification that’s as advanced as the fraudsters


We're building a digital-first, customer-first banking service, going above and beyond the benchmark set by branches. A key part of that is making a sign-up experience that is compliant and frictionless. Onfido helps us to do just that.

Identity fraud is constantly evolving. Don’t let your business fall behind

Identity fraud is a major threat to any business. It’s a risk to revenue and to customer trust alike.

Since the digital revolution, identity fraud has evolved. It’s now the fastest-growing crime, as fraudsters can mount attacks and share techniques more quickly than ever.

But the right online identity verification can defend against this risk. Smart identity checks at the start of the customer journey, or at high-risk touch points, can keep fraudsters away from your platform, and keep your revenue safe too.

Fighting identity fraud begins with document verification

Document verification can catch bad actors before they enter your platform and harm your business. But document fraud is complex, and ever-evolving.

Run by world-class document experts—who work alongside INTERPOL to train governments on document fraud detection—Onfido’s Document Verification catches up to 98.7% of all identity fraud attempts, and protects against the key pillars of document fraud, from forgeries to counterfeits, physical to digital.

It’s also truly international identity verification, covering over 2,500 document types from 195 countries.

facial biometrics

Facial biometrics protect against stolen IDs and impersonation

But what happens when you come across more sophisticated identity fraud? After you’ve verified a document, you may need the extra assurance of verifying the person presenting it.

That’s when you need to layer your approach, adding facial biometrics to your online identity verification.

Onfido’s Biometric Verification lets you confidently verify that a document really belongs to the person uploading it, and that they’re there—in person—during the identity check.
