Onfido ID document and selfie biometrics checks adopted for employment background checks


Onfido ID document and selfie biometrics checks

Onfido will provide its biometric facial recognition to perform frictionless identity verification for global pre-employment screening from Neeyamo Inc., according to a company announcement.

Neeyamo provides background checks for employees in 190 countries, and the partnership allows it to seamlessly authenticate candidate identity information across multiple countries. Candidates take a picture of their ID document and a selfie, and Onfido’s AI-enhanced technology analyzes the document in real-time for genuineness and compares it to the selfie with face biometrics to verify the document belongs to the candidate. This process minimizes turnaround time and enhances the overall candidate experience, the companies say.

“We are pleased to leverage Onfido’s best-in-class technology that will further cement our ability to provide identity verification as a solution to our global customers,” comments Neeyamo Senior Vice President of Strategy Samuel Isaac. “This partnership and our integrated solution coupled with our deep domain expertise will equip us to help our customers quickly establish their candidates’ legitimate online identity.”

“As businesses adapt to support their employees and customers remotely, there shouldn’t have to be a choice between either user convenience or strong fraud protection. They should be able to maximize both,” says Husayn Kassai, CEO and co-founder of Onfido. “We bring trust to digital interactions worldwide, and we’re pleased to partner with Neeyamo to deliver a user-friendly automated onboarding process that’s as rapid as it is robust and intelligent in detecting and preventing fraudulent attempts.”

Onfido’s biometric technology was also recently chosen by Scrive to secure identity checks for its global eID service.
