Your Questions, Answered

Identity verification confirms a person’s identity. There are two main types: knowledge-based authentication and biometric authentication. Certn’s OneID check uses biometric facial recognition technology to verify the identity of an individual instantly by matching a government-issued ID with a real-time selfie instantly.

Biometric screening is a type of identity verification that establishes identity by matching unique biometric features such as retina scans, fingerprinting, and facial recognition. The biometric facial recognition technology in OneID verifies the person’s identity instantly by matching their government-issued ID with a real-time selfie. OneID also relies on practices such as liveness detection for anti-spoofing (and we have a team dedicated to ensuring the technology’s accuracy), so you can have even more confidence that a person is who they claim to be.

OneID is available in all regions.

After the candidate successfully completes a OneID check, you receive the ID verification results instantly. If your candidate cannot successfully complete the OneID 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.

Certn’s OneID 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 a OneID verification is a person’s name and email address.

All Certn clients including hiring managers, property managers, and companies managing gig platforms can enable the OneID feature as part of their background screening process. If you’re a Certn client, you can use OneID.
