ID.me’s Identity Verification Capabilities

Mobile Network

Operator SIM Verification

ID.me verifies that the SIM in the mobile device used for the verification is associated with the identity that the applicant is claiming. It also examines the tenure of the account, the location of the device, and fraud history.



ID.me scans, verifies, and parses document images using machine vision to extract content, applying a proprietary database of rules and AI to verify authenticity.

Facial Recognition & Biometric Matching

ID.me uses liveness detection and advanced machine learning technologies to determine match between applicant’s image on their government identity document and the applicant’s image on their selfie.
