Fraud prevention involves a mix of technology and tactics used to detect and stop fraud attacks. 

Biometric verification, document verification, and fraud detection can help you prevent fraud and keep your customers, assets, and reputation safe. The Onfido Real Identity Platform includes a library of fraud detection solutions alongside document and biometric verifications and trusted data sources brought together on a single platform. Onfido Studio within the Real Identity Platform allows you to orchestrate the right mix of verifications and signals for each region and level of risk, making fraud prevention simple.

Our document and biometric checks are overseen by world-class experts, who have worked alongside INTERPOL to train government agencies on document fraud detection. It’s also truly international identity verification, covering over 2,500 document types from 195 countries.  For specific fraud prevention tactics, read the 5 must-know anti-fraud strategies.

Levels of identity fraud risk differ from business to business. Therefore, it’s important that your online identity verification lets you set a balance between identity fraud prevention and frictionless user experience that matches your risk appetite and customer base. We offer tailored configurations, so your identity verification works for both your business and your customers.

You can choose the right solution to get the results you want, from light-touch document verification to multi-layered checks including facial biometrics. No matter the configuration you choose, our unique mobile SDK lets you build the ideal flow to get your customers from A to B. Real-time feedback and glare detection mean that they’re not left frustrated with identity verification checks and they can get started sooner.

Fraud prevention is important because it helps protect both your business and customers. Fraud hurts a businesses’ bottom line – in the form of revenue lost to fraud and chargebacks. It can also seriously impact your brand's reputation. Customers want to know they can rely on and trust your business. The more susceptible you are to fraud the less likely they will return.
