We’re very pleased to announce that iProov is bringing Genuine Presence Assurance to the web browser, with the launch of iProov Web.
Since 2018, over 3 million people have used iProov’s patented Flashmark technology in mobile apps to confirm their genuine presence. The world’s most security-conscious organizations, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the UK Home Office, Standard Bank in South Africa, and ING in the Netherlands, are using iProov technology in large-scale applications.
iProov Web now extends effortless genuine presence assurance to web browsers, allowing users to securely “iProov” themselves on their laptop and desktop computers, tablets, kiosks, and other devices. Watch the 12 minute webcast.
iProov works in partnership with a number of technology companies around the world. WorldReach Software, based in Canada, is a world leader in government travel and citizen services. We asked Jon Payne, Executive Director, Global Partnerships at WorldReach, to tell us about their work and why they chose iProov for genuine presence assurance.
WorldReach is expert in government travel and citizen services. How has your business evolved since it was originally set up?
WorldReach was founded in 1998 after a five-year software development partnership with Canada's foreign ministry. As our international government client list grew, we quickly gained a reputation as a highly trusted government partner and advisor specialising in consular assistance including crises, and passport issuance solutions. This was our primary focus, until about five years ago.
In recent years, we chose to apply our expertise to create a new process for remote Identity and Document Verification (IDV), recognising the combination of the growth of smartphones as a mobile platform and the steadily increasing proportion of ePassports. In effect, turning the smartphone into an ePassport reader and allowing the owner to verify their identity in much the same way as an e-Gate or e-Kiosk in an airport does it, using facial biometrics.
iProov is attending FIDO Authenticate 2020.
Authenticate, hosted by the FIDO Alliance is the place for CISOs, security strategists, enterprise architects, and product and business leaders wanting to get all of the education, tools and best practices to roll out modern authentication across web, enterprise and government applications.

On 31st March, the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) issued a letter to the CEOs of UK regulated financial institutions providing guidance on how to navigate the challenges of coronavirus.
This has been interpreted by some national newspapers to mean that identity checks can be done with selfies (“Send your bank a selfie to check your identity, watchdog says”, The Daily Telegraph).
This is not true. Identity checks completed via selfie are an open invitation to money-launderers and other criminals.
