Can I verify documents for any country?
We can perform automatic verification checks (including facial comparison with ID card) from any country so long as your ID photo is clear and undamaged.
What causes a profile to be termed 'high risk'?
While we do not disclose our exact alogrithm, typical red flags which push a customer to high risk include having a name match against a recognised sanction list, being a non-resident in the country that you are applying for services in, or being a national of a country subject to UN sanctions.
Is liveness detection available as a feature?
Yes! Our onboarding journey has a ‘Video' section in which instructions are given to the user to follow, which determines that the video is being recorded live.
Do you check Sanctions?
Yes – we check against a wide range of sanction lists.
How long does the verification process last?
Typically around 2-3 minutes for the user to do their liveness detection and input their details.
What if I want to change the verification decision?
A workflow exists within the system which allows you to review the result and overturn it if necessary.
How is the risk scoring done?
While we do not disclose our exact algorithm, we check a number of attributes about the customer including their nationality, country of residence, work type and other features.
