A brief history of Veriff

It all started with the realization companies don’t have a handle on online ID checks. Now we help businesses of all sizes
verify the person behind the account.

Our verification capacity

2017

We could verify 1/9th of Wembley Stadium in a month

10,000 people, or a socially-distanced full capacity.
2019

We could verify all of Wembley just over 14 times every month

Or around 1.3 million people a month.
2020

We could verify all of Wembley 14 times every day

That is a lot of millions every single year.
