Onfido's AI-based technology assesses whether a user’s government-issued ID is genuine or fraudulent, and then compares it against their facial biometrics. That’s how they give companies like Revolut, Zipcar and Bitstamp the assurance they need to onboard customers remotely and securely. Their mission is to create a more open world, where identity is the key to access.

Onfido lets your users scan identity documents (IDs) using their phone or computer, giving you assurance that the ID they’re using is genuine.

To protect against stolen IDs and impersonation attacks, add biometric verification to your flow. And it’s a simple task for your users. All they need to do is take a selfie or a short video. Onfido then compares their facial biometrics to the photo on the ID, and generates a score based on the similarity of the faces.
