Establishing and authenticating a customer’s true identity through digital biometric authentication services presents opportunities to streamline customer interactions, provide better customer experiences, improve onboarding security, and reduce risk.
Proper customer identity authentication is becoming increasingly important in combatting identity fraud. The simple 2 step process requires a customer’s identity to be biometrically verified with Home affairs using a selfie image and creating a trusted profile linked to their account. Whenever authentication is required in-store, a fresh selfie of the customer will be used for comparison against the trusted profile.
Authenticating a customer while on the move can be challenging. Using a mobile device with a fingerprint reader or capturing a selfie image that is compared with biometric identity details on record at Home Affairs will confirm the identity of a client in a matter of seconds. No more friendly fraud or manual identification required.
Accurately authenticating online customers is becoming increasingly important to discourage fraud, account theft, underage accessing of services, and to simplify account access.
Bitventure’s trusted profile service allows customers to quickly and reliably verify their identity without having to use additional delayed verification channels such as SMS, OTP’s and email.
First-time users are authenticated against the Home Affairs database to create their trusted profile. The trusted profile is then used for subsequent facial authentications.
