What is video identification?

Account opening, car sharing or new mobile phone numbers - you need to identify yourself to use many services. In the past, you had to present your ID in person, even if you only wanted to use online services. Today, everything is done conveniently through video identification, round the clock and worldwide.

Personal identification may be a routine aspect of everyday business, however the checks must be compliant and reliable. Otherwise anyone could make a purchase using a false identity or make banking transactions under a fake name. The patented video identification method from WebID therefore provides legally compliant yet fast verification.
