FAQs

Certn’s digital identity verification check uses biometric facial recognition technology to verify someone’s identity instantly. It works by matching a person’s government-issued ID document with a real-time selfie. All you need to request an identity verification check is a person’s name and email address.

Certn uses facial recognition to match a selfie in real-time with identification documents. The report will confirm the name, date of birth, address, document type, issuing country and expiry date of their identification documents.

All you need to request a digital ID verification is a person’s name and email address.

Candidates just need to access a mobile phone or desktop computer’s camera and have one piece of identification, such as a passport or driver’s licence ready.

Our simple and secure 3-step identity verification process is completed in a few clicks through mobile or desktop.

  1. A secure, encrypted link is emailed to your candidate.
  2. The candidate consents and uploads photos of their ID and a selfie with a few clicks.
  3. That’s it! Automated prompts guide the candidate and pre-filled data means it takes minutes. The results are sent back to you as part of the report.

After the candidate successfully submits their background check, you receive the ID verification results instantly. If your candidate cannot complete the ID verification check, we reach out to them to complete an alternative process as a backup. With your candidate’s help, this backup option is typically completed within 24 hours.

Fantastic service from our account manager and his team. They are responsive and easy to get hold of, clear in their communication, helpful and friendly, keep on top of the screening process and do a great job. I’m so happy that I moved to Certn Credence.
HR Administrator SEB London
I’d definitely recommend Certn. I’ve used 3-4 alternative background screening companies before, and they do not compare at all to the service level provided by Certn.
