How it works

Can fake ID scanners catch all fake IDs?

Fake IDs are becoming more and more sophisticated each year as fraudsters use AI to create more realistic copies of drivers licenses, IDs, and even passports. As jurisdictions release new IDs with better security features, fake ID manufacturers are right behind them, updating their templates to match!

Expensive, foreign-made fake IDs are often touted as “scannable,” which means that they believe the fake can pass a barcode scan. However, we’ve found that nearly 50% of fake IDs scanned with VeriScan fail even a basic barcode scan.

When you use ID authentication, you are doing an even deeper leve of verification, which allows for detection of up to 95% of fake IDs.

How does a fake ID scanner app work?

The app reads and examines the ID’s 2D barcode. If ID scanning hardware is used it also performs additional checks on the ID’s authenticity.

Does the app check against third party sources?

While you can layer on third party checks, the app is verifying the ID itself, so there are no per-scan costs to catch fake IDs.

How long does it take to tell whether an ID is fake?

Barcode security checks return a result in <1 second. ID authentication performs a full series of checks in <10 seconds.

Enjoy the strongest protection against fake IDs

In order to catch 95% of fake IDs you need more than a fake ID scanner app for your phone, you’ll need ID authentication.

ultraviolet light id authentication / fake id detection

Ultraviolet light ID scanning

ID authentication examines each ID in ultraviolet light to look for the presence of UV security features on both sides of the ID.

Infrared check on an ID during ID authentication

Front / back crossmatch

VeriScan ID authentication checks the data stored in the barcode of the ID against the data printed. on the front, looking for any mismatches which indicate the ID is fake and needs further scrutiny.

infrared light fake ID detection / authentication

Infrared light ID scanning

ID authentication also uses infrared light checks to look for the presence of marks which only appear under infrared light conditions.

Handheld fake ID scanner app

Can you catch fake IDs using just a mobile device?

Yes. VeriScan catches roughly 50% of fakes using sophisticated AI that performs more than 100 checks on the barcode of each ID. 2D barcode security checks can flag IDs with anomalous data in the PDF417 barcode on the back of the ID.

Using a handheld ID scanner is far more accurate, effective, and security than the naked eye. And the scanner can also ingest data from the ID to create visitor profiles and log visit history.

Do I need a dedicated ID scanner or can I use my phone?

Our fake ID scanner app works well using the existing camera on your mobile phone, but you will likely enjoy the faster, more efficient scanning you get with a dedicated laser ID scanner.

Is the app available for iOS and Android?

Yes. VeriScan is available for both iOS and Android. In fact, you can have both versions in use, syncing to the central cloud portal. We have many customers using both versions successfully.

Which handheld ID scanner will work best for my business?

We offer a great selection of dedicated handheld ID scanners which can save your business the trouble of installing the app on employee devices.
