Age Verification Software

Learn more about our industry leading solution for checking age and authenticating IDs with VeriScan ID scanner.

What is VeriScan?

VeriScan is a visitor management tool with built in age verification and fake ID detection software. It can be used to scan IDs, verify age (18, 21, etc.) for age restricted venues, create visitor profiles, and check against existing lists such as banned or VIP.

How big of a problem are fake IDs?

More than 60% of college students admit to owning or using a fake ID. If you are a retailer or seller of age restricted products (bar, nightclub, dispensary) you are likely encountering fake IDs on a daily basis. And if you aren’t scanning IDs you are likely serving minors.

What is 2D barcode security?

VeriScan Premium and Enterprise have 2D barcode security checks that catch fake IDs which have suspicious “tells” in their 2D barcode. We perform more than 75 algorithmic checks on each ID’s barcode, looking at size, fields, field order, and field formatting.

When compared against other popular industry apps, VeriScan catches a much higher percentage of fake IDs, and parses data more accurately.

Which types of IDs can be scanned using VeriScan?

VeriScan ID scanner works with all government-issued IDs which contain a barcode and/or MRZ. It can reliably authenticate IDs from all 50 states and Canadian provinces, as well as US passports, depending on which hardware is used. With a Global authentication add-on it can also authenticate global documents.

Fake ID Detection

You’re probably here because you want to catch fake IDs and truly keep minors out of your business.

How does VeriScan ID Authentication catch fake IDs?

VeriScan Premium and Enterprise catch some fake IDs by detecting anomalies in the 2D barcode based on algorithms we’ve built during our 15 years in business. Not all 2D barcode scans are created equal.

VeriScan ID Authentication does simultaneous front-back matching and checks the ID with three types of light to catch nearly 95% of fake IDs. It also performs checks against hologram and watermark libraries for additional layers of scrutiny.

What checks are done on IDs to determine authenticity?

  • Ultraviolet light scanning
  • White light scanning
  • Infrared light scanning
  • Hologram library checks (AI-powered)
  • Watermark library checks (AI-powered)
  • Six image capture and comparison

Can you use ID authentication with a handheld ID scanner?

No. A handheld scanner is not capable of performing these robust checks to truly put an image through its paces. If you need to reliably confirm identity using a handheld scanner we recommend adding third party checks which will query databases such as the DMV, Sex Offender Registry, and IdentiFraud.

Visitor Management Software

VeriScan immediately creates and updates visitor profiles each time an ID is scanned. VeriScan syncs across all your entrances and locations.

What information is saved in each customer profile?

VeriScan captures any information stored in the 2D barcode. You can also add custom fields (VeriScan Enterprise only) to enhance each customer profile. You can also capture the picture from the ID or the in-person visit (VeriScan Enterprise only) to attach a visual to each profile.

Can VeriScan create groups or lists?

Yes. VeriScan allows you to create unlimited groups, included banned lists (with time settings) and VIP lists. Your lists can be configured to send immediate alerts to yur management or security team when Banned or VIP individuals try to enter the premises.We also have a Golden Zip Code feature which allows you to identify potential VIPs based on high income zip codes.

How long is data retained inside VeriScan?

You can set custom data retention settings inside your VeriScan instance. You can flush PII immediately, or retain for set lengths of time. Data is uploaded to a secure cloud portal – even if the device is stolen, your customers’ information is secure.

What operating system does VeriScan use?

VeriScan is compatible with Windows, Android, and iOS. If you require Authentication (Fake ID detection) you will need to run the software on a Windows device as the required hardware is only compatible with Windows software.

Verify visitor identity before they arrive on-site

The IDScan.net digital identity verification API allows for easy, remote identity proofing. Users take a photo of their ID, and optionally confirm their identity via selfie. This data can be synced directly into your visitor management system, making check-in and identification when they arrive on-site a breeze.

Perfect for auto dealerships, secure facilities, and anyone who wants to confirm customer identity before allowing them on-premises.

ID scanning is legal in 49/50 states. New Hampshire is the only state in which ID scanning is currently illegal. ID scanning is required in many states for age restricted purchases such as cannabis, alcohol, and tobacco. Visit our IDLaws portal for a complete overview of ID scanning laws by state.

What is ID scanning for affirmative defense?

11 states have laws that specifically release businesses from liability for underage sales if ID scanning is performed. So adding in ID scanning can provide additional legal security for your business. Learn more about affirmative defense for ID scanning here.

What data can be retained from an ID?

VeriScan allows for custom settings for PII retention which can conform to all state and industry regulations. Some states require PII be immediately flushed, while others require audit logs which can be exported and examined by state auditors.
