Authenteq is an online identity verification and KYC solution that allows your customers to verify their identity without giving up their privacy.

Main benefits:
- Fast, reliable and low-cost KYC verification that respects your customersí right to privacy.
- Frictionless sign-up process that takes under 60 seconds to complete.
- Customers who have previously signed up can verify their identity in under 3 seconds.
- Replaces expensive and time-consuming manual identity checks.
- Helps prevent identity theft and fraud.
- Fully GDPR and CCPA compliant.

The sign-up and verification processes are quick, accurate and friction free:
- The initial signup process takes under 60 seconds and is 100% automated on the business side.
- Customers who are already signed up for an Authenteq ID can verify their identity in under 3 seconds.

How sign-up works:
- New customers download the app and complete the sign-up process by taking a selfie and scanning their government-issued photo ID.
- We do our proprietary black magic to determine if the customer is a live person taking the selfie in real time and whether the ID document is authentic.
- We use government grade facial recognition to verify the customer's identity by comparing the face in the selfie with the face in the picture on the ID document.
- If everything checks out to our satisfaction, we install a digital certificate on the customer's phone and then we hash and store the customer's information in a cryptographic ledger.

Your business benefits by having verified customers who can rest assured that their personally identifiable information is safe. This assurance reduces dropouts during the KYC process. Neither Authenteq nor any third party ñ even government-backed ñ can decipher an individuals private details from our cryptographic ledger. With Authenteqs solution, there is simply no honey pot of personal data for hackers to steal, abuse and sell.

Not completely functional but has scope

Lets see how it develops over the course of time Not as frictionless as it appears, as of now.

1. Live detection test fails several times
2. Doesn’t give a clear idea whether your country’s national id is accepted or not.
3. What happens to the initial scanned doc? Where does it get stored?
Cloud storage? Blockchain?
4. Does biometric only include face scan and not a fingerprint?
5. Pin is still required instead of a fingerprint. Isnt that as good as a traditional password?

Developer Response ,

Hi kabir_j! Thanks for your feedback. We love hearing constructive feedback, whether compliments or criticism. We’re working hard to improve and make the best possible experience while keeping the privacy and security of users top of mind. To answer your questions: The document picture is stored only on your phone. Additionally we store the extracted information from the document (hashed using a code stored only on your phone) on the blockchain. Security improvements, like fingerprint access are in the pipeline. Watch this space!
