We pushed some global settings down to level settings to embrace even more customization. For instance, this will allow to accept PoI as PoA for specific countries or for certain levels.

Sumsub’s all-in-one Know Your Business (KYB) verification solution is now fully available
KYB verification has never been this easy.
We've been working hard on improving our KYB product by enhancing user navigation, improving KYC for beneficiaries, and revamping the order of steps and levels during the business verification process.
Before, verification links (so-called ‘permalinks’) were generated for each applicant and could be used only once. Unilink is a verification link that can be used for many applicants at the same time. Sumsub also provides a QR code for each Unilink that can be embedded for global use.
Risk Scoring for Questionnaires
We are happy to introduce a risk scoring system for our Questionnaires. This new feature will automatically calculate risk scores based on the applicant’s answers.
Questionnaires are now available on the Mobile SDK
Send any questions to your applicants with a user-friendly widget, now available for Mobile SDK. Users can also use the questionnaires to attach any documents that you may request.

Mobile SDK version 1.18.3 is fully available now
Here’s a reminder of some of the key updates:
We are introducing a new Self-Service option. Anyone can sign up for Sumsub, build the integration, and start verifying users on their own. This option is available on our Pricing page; just click “Sign up” on the top right corner.
New Name Comparison Settings
We’ve introduced two new name comparison options:
Containment – this check is carried out by separating a name (for example: John Smith) into its component parts: “John” and “Smith.” These components are then used to determine whether a name matches,
Fuzzy containment – this check operates by the same principle as Containment, but uses a ‘fuzzier’ algorithm that tolerates a wider range of differences in how names are written. It also tolerates transposition in component parts.
We’re doing our best to help clients keep up with crucial stats. Now you can access the main performance charts right from the homepage. This includes Applicants Reviewed, Median Check Time, Reject Labels, and more.
The new version of the Mobile SDK
We’ve made a couple of important changes to our Mobile SDK. More opportunities to enhance your flow, including streamlined email and mobile number verification.
Say hello to the Sandbox view
We’re replacing the test environment with a Sandbox view, which makes going to Production and moving between views much easier. Now, there’s no more separate URLs and double logins. All you have to do is to click a simple Sandbox/Production switch. Please note that you cannot conduct any real checks in the Sandbox view.
Dashboard URL Change
The Sumsub Dashboard is moving to a new URL: cockpit.sumsub.com. This will give you full control over the verification procedure and access to analytics data. The URL change will occur automatically and will NOT affect your API integration in any way. WebSDK permalinks are moving to a new URL as well: in.sumsub.com.
New Email Design
Emails sent to applicants from the Sumsub dashboard have been optimized for higher click rates and a better user experience. Among other things, the new emails feature an improved design, clear CTA buttons, and more concise texts.
Sumsub Dashboard – now in Spanish 🇪🇸
Do you have operators who are native Spanish speakers? Make their work easier by switching the Sumsub Dashboard to Spanish. All they need to do is to select ‘Spanish’ in the top right-hand corner of the dashboard by clicking on the 🌐 button.
Revamped homepage for the Sumsub dashboard
Now you can see the main performance charts right on the homepage, including Applicants Reviewed, Median Check Time, Reject Labels, and more. This way, you can start your work with a quick check-up on statistics.
Sumsub launches a self-service version of its product
To get started, all you have to do is sign up, set up the integration, build a level, and begin verifying users. This option works best for small and growing businesses that verify less than 1000 users/month with basic KYC. Check out our available pricing plans.
Levels and Customizations release
A new, more secure system is here to replace the old levels and flows. Now, building a smooth verification process is much easier – you just need one level to go live. Later, you will be able to tailor what your users see at every verification step to your liking. You may configure customizations once per SDK type, and attach them to as many levels as you want.
Now, you can see the applicant’s name in its Latin transliteration, regardless of the document’s language. This has been done to streamline your interaction with customers across the globe.
Distinguishing and personalizing webhooks is easier than ever! Add the header names and values that our service will send webhooks with.
Improved NiN verification for applicants from Nigeria
Working with applicants from Nigeria is now even easier. Before, users needed to provide an additional document to supplement their NiN (Nigerian Identification Number Slip). This was bringing down conversion rates as NiN is one of the most popular documents in Nigeria. Now, we have a reliable source that allows Sumsub to validate NiNs alone without requesting any extra docs.
Video Identification – now with email/phone verification and custom questionnaires
Do you want video identification to be even more secure? Check the validity of customer contact info by adding their email and phone number to the verification level. That’s not all. Request any additional information or files by adding a custom questionnaire to your video identification process.
Personal notes to AML matches
Do you need to make your compliance routine more efficient? Create and share notes on matches found during AML screening. You can check them at any time in the dashboard or applicant summary.
Introducing additional features for webhook settings
Mobile SDK Version 1.18. Custom themes for your app
Now you can set up your fonts, colors and styles just once, automatically applying them throughout the whole application. Learn how to build your first theme for Android and iOS. Not using our Mobile SDK yet? Check it out now in the AppStore and Google Play.
A new permission system for your team members
Now you don’t need to set up permissions for each account; simply assign roles to all your team members with explicit names and exact permissions. Our new permission system also lets you tailor Sumsub to your business. For instance, you can create custom roles (like “compliance team” or “technical support”) based on your specific company structure. For your existing accounts, the roles will be assigned automatically—so you don’t have to change a thing. And if you add any new accounts, you can easily select a role or create a new one.
Live chat in the dashboard
Any customer can contact our Technical Support Team right from the dashboard for a live consultation.
The Sumsub mobile app is live
Custom files for questionnaires
Now you can attach custom files to questionnaires, such as tax declarations or special agreements, directly through Sumsub’s SDK.
Improvements to the Sandbox Environment
The sandbox environment now displays a note confirming that no real checks are being performed to eliminate any possible confusion.
Change OCR constructor settings in bulk
Now you can adjust countries, document types, OCR fields, and MRZ modes all in a single click. This can be done by opening the preset window (see screenshot above) and clicking “manage document fields”. The default parameters can be reverted to at any time by clicking “reset to default settings”.
Redesigned moderation buttons
The redesigned buttons make our interface easier to navigate, even for first-time users.
Photo Geolocation is available on the map
The ‘show map’ functionality lets moderators see where pictures were taken and uploaded.
Applicant cross-check comparison settings can now be adjusted
You can set how strictly applicants’ stated names are compared with what’s written on their uploaded documents.

All paid branding features are now located in the ‘Branding’ tab of your profile settings. From there you can set up your own branding on WebSDK and email notifications, such as logos, texts, css and external links to your domain.

An ‘account details’ section has been added where you can keep information about your business which is automatically used in the Data Processing Agreement.
To make things more convenient for operators, the system displays short notes highlighting issues related to photos with low digital trust scores.
