Innovalor and WorldReach Software revealed as partners for biometric Brexit immigration app
In addition to biometrics provided by iProov, the UK Home Office’s post-Brexit EU immigration app will leverage ID document reading and verification technology from InnoValor, according to an announcement from the latter company.
The “EU Exit: ID Document Check” is part of the EU Settlement Scheme, which opened on March 30. The app reads the chip in ePassports and identity cards with InnoValor’s flagship ReadID software, after Apple agreed to make the NFC chip available to the app developers. Facial recognition with liveness detection is provided by iProov, through a partnership with Canada-based border management software company WorldReach Software.
“We are proud and privileged to be part of this new service for the UK Home Office”, says InnoValor CEO Maarten Wegdam. “Large European banks such as ING, Rabobank, Volksbank, and the Norwegian bank DNB already use ReadID for mobile onboarding, combining user convenience with trusted identity document verification capabilities.”
“This new service brings together the latest identity verification technologies and innovative processes with the mobile user experience citizens demand,” states WorldReach President Gordon Wilson. “InnoValor and WorldReach have a long history working together in the Canadian Safety and Security Program and we are thrilled to expand our collaboration to this new important immigration program.”
iProov recently passed Level B spoof attack detection testing in a review by the National Physical Laboratory.
