ID authentication

Our age verification software, when paired with authentication-capable hardware, can be configured to catch up to 95% of fake IDs.

How common are fake IDs?

In a recent review of anonymized data across our customer base we determined that between 0.7% and 4% of IDs presented for the purchase of age restricted products show signs of being fraudulent. Age verification software is the ideal way to combat the use of fake IDs.

What is ID authentication?

ID authentication is forensic document analysis to confirm whether the ID is legitimate. In addition to AI-powered software, it requires specialty hardware that is capable of performing the following:

  • White light/UV light/Infrared light image analysis
  • 6-image comparison
  • Front/back simultaneous matching (using OCR to compare text on the front of the ID to the data in the 2D barcode)
  • Hologram library checks
  • Watermark library checks

Can fake IDs be caught using an app or handheld ID scanner?

ID scanners use the 2D barcode to capture, parse, and read the PII stored on the ID. This includes fields such as first name, last name, address, and date of birth. Many fake IDs contain “tells” that indicate they are fraudulent within the 2D barcode. These can be incorrectly formatted fields, fields which don’t use known values (example: using “Brown” instead of “BRN” for eye color), or fields which don’t conform to the state template.

Handheld scanners lack ultraviolet and infrared camera, as well as the ability to perform front/back matching, and so are only capable of catching fake IDs with 2D barcode anomalies, which is roughly 50% of fake IDs.

Using a handheld ID scanner

VeriScan software is cloud-based and allows for easy scanning of IDs and passports. Age verification software can be used on a handheld ID scanning device which uses an auto-focus laser to instantly hone in on the barcode or MRZ of the document.
