    Step 1

Select the data verification method you need

Sumsub cross-checks data through government databases, credit bureaus, postal services, and more. Here are the two recognized methods we use:

2x2 Verification

Verifies two datasets until they’re cross-matched by two data sources

Fits right into your required flow

User pre-screening

Verify user data before KYC to detect fraud at early stages and reduce operational costs

User post-screening

Ensure the authenticity of user data at later KYC stages to minimize fraud

Standalone solution

Verify user data without requiring IDs for the onboarding stage, preventing fake accounts and reducing financial risks

  • What is global ID verification through databases?

    Global ID verification ensures that the ID information provided by users, such as names, dates of birth, ID numbers, addresses, and other relevant data, is legit using a wide range of databases.

    Sumsub’s Global Database Verification enables Identity Verification, Address Verification, and Age Verification, features that eliminate document-based processes while maintaining highest onboarding security standards. To do this, Sumsub leverages over 250 recognized data sources on a global level.

  • Which use cases are applicable to Global Database Verification?

    Global Database Verification can be used as a standalone personal data verification solution or in combination with other verification products. Some use cases include user pre-verification, where data is pre-screened before the full onboarding process, and user post-verification, which double-checks information submitted during the onboarding process.

  • What verification methods does Global Database Verification apply?

    Global Database Verification leverages two main data verification methods: 1x1 Verification and 2x2 Verification. 1x1 Verification involves cross-matching a single dataset with a single source of data within the user's country. 2x2 Verification goes a step further by cross-matching two datasets with two separate sources of data, offering enhanced security and validation. These methods allow businesses to tailor their verification approach based on industry, use case, and their desired security level.
