What is KYC?

Know Your Customer (KYC) is an identity verification process that authenticates the real identity of customers during onboarding.

What is Enhanced Due Diligence?

EDD goes beyond CDD and looks to establish a higher level of identity assurance with additional verification steps such as verifying the customer’s address.

How do you perform KYC?

Three key steps are involved in our identity process; first, we read the document and extract identity data; next, we check the person on camera is real and matches the document; finally, we verify document authenticity via government databases or using the digital signatures on the document.

What are the requirements for KYC?

KYC document requirements vary according to a region’s jurisdiction but generally include

  • A government-issued ID card
  • Passport
  • Driving License
  • Voter’s ID
  • Birth certificates

Why is KYC required?

KYC helps financial institutions verify the identity of customers and prevents companies from being used in illegal financial activities. KYC also helps firms understand their customer’s financial behaviour, aiding in a better user experience.

What is eKYC?

eKYC or Digital KYC refers to a remote, paperless KYC process, that can be completed digitally. The steps involved in eKYC are:

  • AI document scanning
  • Biometric face recognition
  • Digital document verification

How long does KYC verification take?

uqudo’s identity verification can be completed in less than 10 seconds.
