Onfido will continue to deliver AI-powered identity verification and will expand to provide user re-authentication solution to bunq users. Applicants simply take a photo of their government-issued identity document (ID) using their smartphone and the AI-enhanced technology assesses if it seems genuine.

Users then take a video selfie and Onfido’s biometric analysis compares it to the ID to verify if it matches the user. The process detects fraudulent documents and spoofing attempts while providing legitimate users a frictionless onboarding experience, according to the official press release.

The challenger bank is expanding its partnership with Onfido for its user re-authentication solution for users looking to reset their passwords and resolve account lockouts. When high risk is detected around a customer account, Onfido lets users easily authenticate by simply taking a selfie.

bunq was founded in 2012 and is currently available in 30 European markets: the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, Ireland, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, the United Kingdom and Norway and Iceland.
