What is iProov

What is iProov?

iProov is a company making the internet a safer place. We do this with online identity verification. Our technology uses colored lights to tell if an online user is the right person and a real person. It’s very easy to use, it’s very secure, it respects user privacy, and it keeps everyone safe online. It is used by banks, governments, travel companies, healthcare providers and more.

How does it work?

  • Imagine you’re applying for a bank account or a loan.
  • You want to do this online as it’s more convenient than going into a bank branch or calling a call center.
  • You pick up your mobile phone or tablet or open your laptop and start your application with the bank.
  • During the process, you’re asked to verify your identity.
  • You scan your passport or other government ID using your device.
  • You then hold the device in front of you and scan your face for a few seconds (we call this ‘iProoving’ yourself).
  • This process detects that you match the photo in your document (you’re the right person), it confirms that you are real (and not an imposter photo or mask), and that you’re completing the application right now.
  • Once you’ve signed up, you can use iProov to log back in securely.

Why is iProov important?

  • It protects against fraud – for example, banks can check that the account is being opened by you and not an imposter using your identity.
  • It is completely effortless for the user – you do not have to move or say anything.
  • It brings trust to the internet – we can now check that people are real and who they say they are.
  • Online crime is becoming more sophisticated and more dangerous. iProov has been designed to protect against criminal attacks.
