Open Banking ID

Real-time authentication and identity verification leveraging Open Banking standards.

Product Overview

Improve verification rates and reduce fraud risk by leveraging the Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) standards needed to log into a UK bank account with Open Banking ID and prove the customer data is accurate. We can help you perform a secure, real-time customer anti-impersonation assessment, ID verification and proof of address which can speed-up your customer acquisition. 

Partners with our other identity products to help provide additional authentication, conforming to Know Your Customer (KYC) regulation as well as ensuring a compliant customer journey.
How It Works

  • Customer provides consent to share their bank information.
  • Customer logs into their online bank account to verify their data.
  • You can then perform additional data or document checks in line with KYC regulation and AML screening as required.
