How ID Scanning Works
Developers for thousands of global organizations use the IDScan.net ID scanning SDKs to scan IDs using mobile devices. This can be used to enable a hardware-free ID scanning experience, in which users can use their existing iOS or Android device to scan and parse IDs.
Scan the Identification Document
The ID scanning SDK for iOS cameras will autofocus on the 2D barcode and take a crisp picture when the barcode is found to be in-frame.
Translate ID Barcode to a Raw Data String
Once the iPhone or iPad takes a photo of the 2D barcode, the SDK will turn the barcode into a string of raw characters.
Parse the ID
Once you have a raw text string, converted from the photo of the 2D barcode, you can utilize our ID parsing SDK to import and classify the data into text fields for use in your CRM or application.

Readable Fields From An ID
The following are a list of available fields, which can be parsed from commonly issued drivers’ licenses and state-issued IDs.
Frequently Asked Questions
The ID scanning SDK will essentially turn your mobile device into a scanning device. It is ideal for use cases where specialty scanning hardware cannot be used and users will be using their phone or tablet. ID parsing takes the information captured in the ID scan and turns it into digestible data that can be used in form fields or a database.
The ID scanning SDK is used to scan IDs using a native application. It can be used inside a web-based application, but for web-based applications or websites, we recommend using our ID parsing API, 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. Any ID that uses a 2D barcode can be scanned using this SDK.
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.
No. Many webcams are not of a high enough quality to accurately scan barcodes, therefore we focus on ID scanning SDKs for Android and iOS.
Other ID Scanning SDKs
We offer ID Scanning SDKs for both iOS and Android devices.
