The WebID Group

Security and speed for online identifications and online contract signing

WebID Solutions GmbH is the head of the WebID Solutions Group, Europe’s leading provider of legally-compliant online contract conclusion and accurate personal identification products. Worldwide, WebID is the pioneer in video identification in accordance with the Money Laundering Act (GwG), which has been gradually adopted into the legislation and draft proposals of many companies since this pioneering achievement.

The company was founded in 2012. Its headquarters are in Berlin, with its most important locations in Germany being Hamburg and Solingen. It has subsidiaries in numerous other countries.
To date, more than 90 million data fields from users have been securely checked for authenticity and identified. Its team comprises almost 500 people, with more than 430 of them verifying over 10,000 users daily, 365 days a year.

WebID has invented and is continuously refining the meticulous processes behind personal legitimation. The results of many years of development work have even been integrated into official specifications for the entire industry – with WebID by far exceeding those specifications.

The group of companies is on a path of international expansion. Its own companies are gradually being set up, or major licensing partnerships are being entered into. All in all, more than 1,000 staff from WebID or licensing partners work in accordance with the secure WebID identification system. The “WebID Inside” label is continuing its international expansion. Sites are soon to open in Palo Alto (Silicon Valley) and New York. Why not become a licensing partner too with the WebID identification system and write to us here: here.

The quality and expansion of WebID video identification mean that the third model of the secure safekeeping and reuse of a “true identity”, which has been implemented since the company was founded, has proven a benefit to users. At the user’s request, WebID can act as a storage location for verified, true identities in order to allow an even better and maximum security user experience for everyday proofs of identification and when signing contracts in compliance with the law.
