Onfido builds trust in an online world by helping businesses digitally verify users’ identities. The company uses AI to verify any photo ID and then compares it with the person’s facial biometrics. This use of AI means that businesses no longer need to compromise on customer experience, conversion, privacy or security. Founded by three entrepreneurs from Oxford University, Onfido has raised $200m in funding from investors including TPG Growth, Salesforce Ventures, and M12 – Microsoft’s venture fund. The company powers identity verification with established brands worldwide, including CLEAR, Revolut and Expensify.
