Face Verification Features

Face detection online services

Face Detection

  • Detect the user’s image and capture it using a standard camera on the onboarding mobile app.
  • Human face is detected using algorithms and machine learning.
  • The algorithm detects facial features which are analysed in the next step.
Face id analysis services

Face Analysis

  • The captured image is then analysed.
  • A combination of computer vision, machine learning and image processing are used to analyse facial features.
  • The software identifies the nodal points, which are the distances between facial features, to identify key facial landmarks.
Facial recognition & liveness detection services

Liveness Detection

  • The user is then guided to turn their head in randomised directions to evaluate their liveness.
  • Liveness detection is done using special computer vision technology to check if the person is real.
  • Liveness detection helps identify spoofs and maximises accuracy during identity verification.
Facial id evaluation process

Evaluation of facial data

  • After liveness evaluation, the data is sent to the server.
  • In the case of a new user, this data is used for user onboarding.
  • For an already existing customer, the data is digitally authenticated for signing in.
Secure, frictionless, & fully compliant digital onboarding. Integrated seamlessly within your app.

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.

Is facial recognition safe?

Biometric face authentication uses unique facial patterns to identify people, making it highly efficient. Since our platform doesn’t store data, all biometric information is encrypted and secure.
