How ID Parsing Works
Developers for thousands of global organizations leverage the IDScan.net ID parsing SDK to quickly and accurately scan IDs, passports, and identification cards and turn the data contained in their barcodes into readable, editable text strings.
Scan the Identification Document
Using a scanner that is equipped to read 2D barcodes, simply scan the front and back of the document. You can also use our ID Scanning SDK for mobile cameras, which will allow for ID scanning and ID parsing on an iOS device.
Translate ID Barcode to Raw Data
Once the barcode is ingested, the SDK will allow you to pull information stored inside the 2D barcode.
Barcode Data is Ready To Use
The fields available inside the barcode are converted to a file that can be easily added to your database, CRM, or used to populate form fields inside your iOS application.

Frequently Asked Questions
The ID parsing SDK for iOS is used to validate and parse an ID’s barcode inside a native iOS application. For web-based applications or websites, we recommend using our ID parsing API web library, which can be set up and integrated much more quickly. You can contact us at (504) 434-0222 and we can help you determine whether the API or SDK will be a better fit for your needs.
No. This SDK reads the barcode on the back of the ID and ingests the data stored in the 2D barcode. It is much more accurate than optical character recognition.
This SDK works for all US drivers’ licenses and state-issued IDs, as well as all government IDs. It also works on most Canadian IDs, military IDs, and some Canadian healthcare cards.
If you are looking to scan and verify images of IDs, we recommend our mobile ID validation (DVS) product, which includes photo analysis of IDs, and facial recognition match using selfies. This SDK can use images of barcodes, however it will perform at a lower success rate because it will lack the auto-focus feature that comes standard inside our ID parsing SDK.
This SDK can be used to detect anomalies in the ID’s 2D barcode. To detect most fake IDs you would use our ID authentication SDK.
We have no access to scans made using our SDK. Data is stored and flushed based on customer requirements.
Other ID Parsing SDKs
We offer a variety of ID parsing SDKs to enable developers to create identity verification programs for a variety of devices and use cases. Many of our clients use multiple SDKs to provide an omnichannel experience.
