Biometric verification

Verify trusted clients fast with advanced biometrics

Biometric verification technology has never been faster. Onboard with AI-powered facial recognition technology that instantly matches the user’s face with their ID.

ID Verification Selfie

Pick the biometric check you need most

Sumsub offers two options to go with your regulatory requirements. Both checks take mere seconds to complete.

Liveness & Face Match

Confirm the true document holder in a compliant, fraud-proof, and user-friendly way. It takes our passive biometrics less than a second to build a precise 3D face map which is then compared to the picture in the provided ID document to eliminate any chance of fraud.

Video Fragment

Comply with jurisdictions that require a short video for verification. Our biometric identity verification system tasks the user with saying a random phrase to determine if they are who they say they are.

No jumping through hoops to get verified. All your user needs to do is glance into the camera, roll their head, or say a random phrase.

  • What is biometric identity verification?

    Facial biometric verification is the process of analyzing facial data with the help of a 3D map captured via the photo verification process. Biometric verification systems work by identifying a person's unique features and analyzing certain biological traits.

  • What is a biometric verification system?

    A biometric verification system analyzes a user's identity using their unique biological traits (i.e., fingerprints, voices, retinas, and facial features) to secure access to different online systems or authorize transactions. The goal is to prevent unauthorized access and reduce the risk of fraudulent activities.

  • What are the advantages of facial biometrics?

    Biometrics are preferable to passwords, PINs, or security tokens because they're easier to use and provide greater privacy and security. The key advantages are that biometric traits cannot be easily transferred or shared, user convenience, improved user experience (UX), lower risks of human error, and the overall future-proof nature of the process since biometric traits remain relatively stable throughout a person's life (as opposed to other continually updated authentication methods).

  • What is selfie ID verification?

    Selfie ID verification is a type of biometric verification that requires the user to take a selfie on their handheld device or web camera for the subsequent verification process.
