Age verification software

How does VeriScan verify age of a scanned ID?

VeriScan can be automatically configured to check the date of birth on the ID against today’s date to alert security if an individual is under 18 or 21. Additionally, it will present a pop-up if a guest presents an expired ID.

However, most minors looking to fool a bouncer or purchase alcohol or cannabis are not going to use an ID that says they’re underage. They are going to use a fake ID. VeriScan offers two levels of fake ID detection. All tiers provide 2D barcode security checks that look for anomalies in the ID’s barcode that can indicate it is fake – this catches roughly 50% of fake IDs.

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, as most of these IDs cannot be detected using the naked eye.

Which types of IDs can be scanned using VeriScan

VeriScan works with all government-issued IDs which contain a barcode and/or MRZ. With a VeriScan ID Authentication and specialty hardware add-on it can also authenticate global documents such as non-US drivers licenses.

Visitor management software

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

What information is saved in each visitor 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, including banned lists (with time settings) and VIP lists.

Your lists can be configured to send immediate alerts to your management or security team when Banned or VIP individuals try to enter the premises. VeriScan also offers a Gold 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 configure custom data retention settings inside your VeriScan instance. You can flush PII immediately, or retain for set lengths of time. With VeriScan Enterprise and higher you can also create retention settings by field, and create and deploy PII settings Profiles across multiple devices, managed from the central portal.

Data is uploaded to a secure cloud portal, so even if the device is stolen, your customers’ information is secure.
