ID Verification API

Identity verification is the critical foundation for trust and security in the digital economy. However, with rising identity fraud and sophisticated cyberattacks, basic checks are no longer sufficient. Organizations need intelligent solutions that go far beyond superficial data matching.

Cover Image of blog's AI-powered ID Verification API represents the next generation of identity proofing technology with unparalleled accuracy and industry-leading fraud prevention capabilities:

Advanced Forensic Analysis Detects Elaborate ID Forgeries

  • Proprietary machine learning algorithms perform over 50 forensic tests on government-issued IDs, analyzing security overlays, microprinting, holograms, document integrity, data consistency, and subtle signs of tampering.
  • Forensic analysis outsmarts fraudsters by detecting manipulated or entirely fabricated credentials that can bypass standard verification checks. This provides a vital layer of protection against synthetic identity fraud.
  • Continuous model training on an expanding database of hundreds of millions of document images ensures the API keeps pace with emerging fraud techniques and evolving security features.

Comprehensive Template Library and Computer Vision for Cross-Referencing

  • Computer vision technology extracts key identity data points from IDs for cross-referencing against's vast proprietary template library.
  • Granular optical character recognition analyzes fonts, spacing, layouts, signatures to catch inconsistencies or alterations.
  • Global coverage includes over 6,500 document versions across 200+ countries, ensuring geographic reach to verify customers worldwide.
  • Regular template library updates account for jurisdictions introducing new document versions, preventing document expiration or lack of updated templates from enabling fraud.

Configurable Workflows Align Identity Proofing to Your Risk Tolerance

  • Customizable verification rules allow different identity proofing steps based on the risk level of transactions. More checks for high-risk activities, streamlined process for low-risk access.
  • Step-up authentication options (e.g. multifactor authentication) provide additional verification when needed to further corroborate identities and mitigate risk.
  • Role-based access controls restrict API usage to authorized staff and systems, ensuring compliance with data regulations.

Seamless Integration and Developer-Friendly API

  • Integration with popular programming languages like Python, Java, Ruby, PHP, and frameworks like React Native.
  • Detailed documentation with code samples accelerate implementation. Modular design simplifies customization.
  • Webhook notifications on verification status enable automated workflows based on real-time API responses.

Ongoing Innovation and Responsible Data Practices

  • Regular platform upgrades introduce new authentication techniques like passive liveness detection, ensuring continued effectiveness against evolving fraud.
  • Stringent physical and digital security safeguards customer data. Compliance with regulations like GDPR underscores commitment to privacy.

With's multilayered identity verification approach, businesses can confidently expand digital services knowing customer identities are authenticated to the highest standard.
