Our Story

iProov was founded in 2011 on a ‘Big Idea’. That Big Idea focused on solving a complex challenge: how to prove someone is who they say they are on a digital platform.

Having experienced the devastating consequences of online criminal activity, our founder and CEO, Andrew Bud, vowed to find a safe and secure way for organizations to verify the genuine presence of an individual. To enable this to happen it was necessary to ensure that the person setting up an online account was an actual person, and then authenticate that person whenever they return to use a digital service or verify their identity at secure locations.

The Big Idea was to use facial biometrics and controlled illumination to assure the genuine presence of a human being. Why facial biometrics? Because most government-issued identity documents contain a picture of a face and an identity can be verified against a trusted source. Why controlled illumination? Because it’s completely effortless for the user – with no instructions to follow or complex actions required. Just a brief, simple selfie capture that takes just seconds to complete. This gives the most secure assurance that an individual is not an imposter, a photo, a mask, a deepfake video, or a multitude of other sophisticated cyber attack tactics being used by criminal gangs worldwide.

The future will see the addition of a multi-modal biometric approach to increase identity assurance further.

Today, iProov is trusted by global public sector and governments, financial services, safeguarding providers, digital identity programs, and travel and health organizations to verify online individuals with security, usability, and privacy assured.
