Best ID processor on the market!

Way better than going to the bank to get yourself id paperwork processed!

Absolute waste of time

You’re better off going in person or finding an alternative. Apparently they are listed unofficially for a german company. I called the company, and they said they aren’t working with “IDnow”.

Now all that’s fine might be a mistake by the person I spoke with or something.... HOWEVER I only found that out after 40 minutes of waiting for someone to pick up my call. If you’re whole business model is based off of online video calls, you Should probably get that ONE thing down.
Again, don’t waste your time.

Not working

They give you a choice between smartphone and computer identification to tell you later that the camera on the laptop is not good enough for identification (recent MacBook Pro). When trying to identify via smartphone the process was interrupted several times because the temperature of the smartphone was getting too high and shut off. I finally gave up and went to the post office after wasting a few hours, downloading Google Chrome (they wouldn’t accept Safari) and installing (another) useless App on my smartphone. Thanks, IDnow!
