First AML will perform biometric checks during the electronic identity verification process. These checks involve the use of video to capture liveliness, requesting the client to supply evidence via voice and physical movement. 

Our EIV form will ask users to repeat a series of numbers while filming their faces and then to rotate their heads. In the event that a biometric video cannot be collected (e.g. client's device does not support the video feature) we will collect a photo of the individual which will be checked using facial recognition and checked for liveness.

First AML will surface the results of the below checks via the verification report:

  1. Facial recognition

    Compares the photo or video provided by the applicant to the face on the document provided. It aims to prove identity document ownership so that only the owner of the identity document can use it to verify their identity and access services.

  2. Anti-tampering

    The Document report employs a variety of techniques designed to identify fraudulent documents. The internal and external consistency of the identity document provided by the applicant are checked to identify potential discrepancies.

  3. Optical Character Recognition

    The information is extracted from the ID document and checked against the information that has been entered by the customer.
