NFC (Near-field communication)-based verification is capable of reading and interacting with NFC chips in compatible IDs and ePassports. If there is a possibility to obtain the data through the NFC chip, the system will inform the applicant and offer this option.
NFC verification provides extra protection; to pass verification, applicants must always have an original document and NFC-enabled device on hand.
- Applicants take a photo of an ID document.
- System detects that the ID document supports NFC and requests a scan.
- Applicants press the document to the mobile phone. If there is no NFC reader on an applicant phone, this step is skipped automatically.
- System extracts data from the chip (first name, last name, ID number, and issue date) and from the ID photo.
- System cross-validates the data and notifies the applicant on the check results.
Applicants can skip NFC verification when getting a request or in case of any errors during scanning. Thus, they will be able to pass verification via the standard documentary approach.
To start using NFC:
- Contact your Customer Success Manager to enable NFC verification.
- Implement the module as described in iOS SDK, Cordova, Flutter, and React Native. The Android platform does not require additional adjustments.
- Set up a verification level with ID verification.
- Conduct identity verification with the additional NFC-based option.
