The Facial Similarity Check will compare a selfie or live video provided by the applicant to the photo in the most recent identity document provided.
Onfido offers two Facial Check variants, Facial with Photo or Video. Please find more details below:
Facial Check - Photo
Images and data are extracted from identity documents using machine learning and then compared to a selfie taken by the user. Available via the SDK or IDV form, this check is for low-risk users or transactions.
Facial Check - Video
In addition to extracting images and data from identity documents, Onfido’s facial check with video provides added security. The user films themselves repeating numbers and performing randomised movements. Available via the SDK, this check is for high-risk users or transactions.
