How to use ReadID

In online applications, ReadID can be used as part of an online self-service identity verification process, for example for mobile consumer onboarding for banks. This can be done from home, so there is no need to travel to an office or have someone come to the door. Integrate ReadID into your app through our SDK. Read more on ReadID SaaS or our ready-to-use identity verification app ReadID Ready.

In face-to-face applications, ReadID is used by employees to read and verify the identity document of someone in front of them, for example, a police officer checking someone's identity on the street. Read more on ReadID Client Only.

This can be done anywhere, using standard smartphones without expensive and clumsy dedicated hardware. No training required and flawless input of personal information.

To gain access to the chip in your passport, you need to scan the Machine Readable Zone of the passport (or identity card) using the camera of the smartphone. To read the chip in your passport through Near Field Communication (NFC), you simply hold the passport to the back of the smartphone. 

Integrate ReadID into your own application through our SDK and APIs  


With ReadID you can create successful digital onboarding using remote identity verification.
