Biometric Authentication for the UK Home Office

The award recognized iProov’s Genuine Presence Assurance work for the UK Home Office and the EU Settlement Status application process (described here recently in Has the UK Just Quietly Seen One of the Most Successful Government IT Projects Ever?)

Recent data on the project shows that:

  • More than 3.1 million applications have been successfully concluded
  • A high percentage of applicants completed their application in under 10 minutes, with a high level of identity assurance
  • Over 2,300 different makes and models of Android and iOS devices have been used to complete the identity verification process
  • Peaks of 25,000-30,000 applications per day have been successfully managed
  • 79% of applicants indicated that proving their identity through the app was either “very easy” or “fairly easy”
