  • What is biometric identity verification?

    Biometric identity verification is the process of confirming an individual's identity by analyzing and verifying their unique facial features. Companies use facial biometric verification solutions to ensure their users are genuine during verification, password changes, money withdrawals, and more. Biometric verification is a reliable way of protecting against identity fraud. There are two main types of biometric verification: active and passive. Passive biometric verification happens in the background without user participation, while active verification requires user involvement.

  • What is the difference between verification and identification in biometrics?

    Verification in biometrics confirms if a person is who they claim to be by comparing their biometric data to a stored template. Identification in biometrics involves searching a database to find a potential match for a person's biometric data to determine their identity. However, these terms are often used interchangeably.

  • What is the selfie ID verification method?

    The selfie ID verification uses a selfie as a means of verifying a person's identity. Selfie identity verification typically involves capturing a selfie and comparing it to a reference photo or document, such as a government-issued ID, to ensure that the person in the selfie matches the identity they claim to have. Nowadays, the selfie method is gradually being replaced by biometric liveness checks for higher security and a more friendly user experience.

  • How does a biometric verification system work?

    Biometric identity verification system uses unique facial features to authenticate an individual's identity. It involves comparing biometric data provided by the individual with stored data to determine a match. If the biometric data matches within an acceptable threshold, the system verifies the person's identity. This process is sometimes named as biometric KYC and provides a secure and efficient way to confirm someone's identity without relying on traditional identification methods.
