Curve partners Onfido for biometric onboarding

Curve has partnered with digital identity verification firm Onfido to enable biometric onboarding.

The deal will see the card consolidation platform use Onfido’s identity document and facial biometric technology to speed up and unify the digital identity and Know Your Customer (KYC) processes.

By integrating the artificial intelligence-powered ID verification service, Curve customers are able to sign up by taking a photo of a government-issued identity document (ID) and a selfie. Onfido first checks that the ID seems genuine and is not fraudulent, before matching it to the user’s face. This ensures the person presenting the identity is its legitimate owner and is physically present.

The app-based platform means users are able to start their digital journey from any location through a user-friendly online experience that meets regulatory requirements, with the process lasting less than a minute.

Matt Collinge, Curve’s chief product and technology officer, said: “Onfido’s interface and system is easy to navigate, drawing from a vast database that verifies identity in double quick time, and their portal quickly reports decision outcomes for ID doc and selfie and other KYC processes which have improved the sign up experience for our customers in line with our core compliance objectives.”
