Online Identification via Bank Accounts

Fast, safe and usable anywhere in the world

WebID Account Ident is a method of online identification via your customers’ bank account, which is compliant with the German Money Laundering Act (Geldwäschegesetz). Using our product, your customers can identify themselves any time (24/7) simply by logging into their online banking – it’s quick, safe and it involves no waiting time. WebID Account Ident is compliant with the Geldwäschegesetz due to a unique combination of automated and AI-based realness- and identification checks with innovative verification mechanisms, as well as the link to the bank account.

Furthermore, WebID Account Ident can be combined with Qualified Electronic Signatures (QES) in order to sign contracts online. The product can therefore be easily incorporated into the existing sales processes of your goods and/or services. This way, you can identify your customers in compliance with money laundering laws and data protection regulations entirely online – and hence enable the quick completion of your transactions.

How does WebID Account Ident work?

The identification with WebID Account ldent is completed in three simple steps:

After entering their personal data, the customer simply takes a photo of the front and back of their ID card as well as a portrait photo of themselves. A fully automated process compares the transferred data and checks whether the ID document is valid. In addition, further extensive security-relevant checking processes and evaluations are carried out automatically.

In the next step, the user logs in to their online banking account using their standard log in details. The process is completed by entering a TAN sent to the user’s mobile phone into the field provided.

This process can be carried out with any Internet-capable device with a camera.
