Offering remote identity verification for GOV.UK Verify, Digidentity enables the British public to access a wide range of governmental services online.

Among other security features, facial recognition, and biometric liveness detection by BioID are used for verifying the ID ownership and deterring fraud by presentation attacks.

Digidentity’s solutions streamline the process in real-time making human intervention unnecessary in most cases.
