Why Veriff

IDV is not just secure, fast, and friction-free, marketplace users are also spared the fuss and frustration of being locked out of their accounts when they forget the answers to security questions such as their favorite food, pet name, or mother’s maiden name.

Veriff’s IDV solution goes even further, seeking explicit permission to record customers using their device’s camera during the verification process. This makes it even more difficult for criminals to provide fraudulent document data or fake live verification.

Marketplaces have evolved almost beyond recognition in the past three decades, with the sales channel continuing to grow and innovate at speed. However, the need to fight fraud and maintain trust is more important than ever. In this environment IDV technology is proving to be truly transformative.
