Passbase biometric identity verification chosen by Las Vegas Pride to increase community safety
Passbase’s biometric identity verification technology has been chosen by Nevada-based non-profit organization Las Vegas Pride to help advance its digital transformation and enhance community members’ safety, the company announced.
The no code technology developed by Passbase will secure the privacy of participants in age restricted events through face biometrics-based age verification and ID proofing.
“We decided to go with Passbase for two reasons – because it’s easy to integrate and it allows us to avoid storing personal information,” said Steven Othar, adult programming coordinator at Las Vegas PRIDE, in a prepared statement. “We don’t need to store it; we just need to make sure that someone is over 18. We might have been able to use another company, but we never would have gotten that technology up and running because doing that involves employing specialized help. After discovering Passbase our tech guru (Julia at JIV Studio) asked us to use it noting that it would be the easiest solution to get up and running with.”
“We’re building the infrastructure of trust and are thrilled to be helping PRIDE,” said in the announcement Mathias Klenk, CEO and co-founder of Passbase. “Our mission is to build the trust layer of the internet which transcends to the physical world as well. We want to contribute to making societies more inclusive and diverse and we’re humbled to know that with Passbase, PRIDE will be able to maintain and grow their community while undergoing digital transformation.”
In June, Passbase launched a codeless biometric identity verification solution to enable fast adoption of face recognition for online checks without taking up developer resources. It recently appointed industry veteran Dan Lee as Vice President of Sales to drive business development and sales operations globally with a focus on fintech and medtech.
