What geographic areas are covered by IDScan.net checks?
We cover the United States only.
Do you have to scan an ID to perform a third party check?
Third party checks are an ideal companion to our ID scanning products because they eliminate the need to manually type the data you want to query against. However, they are not required, and third party checks can be performed on manual entries inside VeriScan.
Are there restrictions on how IDScan.net third party checks can be used?
Our criminal background checks are not FCRA, so they cannot be used for final decision making for the purpose of employment, housing, lending, etc.
How long does a third party check take to provide a response?
This varies by the type of check and sometimes by the jurisdiction we are checking against, but we generally provide results in less than 5 seconds.
What are the required fields to initiate a third party check?
All third party checks will require different fields, but at minimum they will utilize a first name, last name, and date of birth. DMV checks require the state of issuance and the ID number as well.
How often are the databases updated?
We query against live databases, so they are updated frequently and can be considered to be up-to-date in realtime, or near realtime.
