ID Verification

pbVerify’s ID Verification tool is used by corporations to authenticate the identity information of South African citizens, as well as to determine whether or not they are credit active. The validation of identity data is a course of action taken by many organisations as part of their basic credit risk management processes and policies, to the end of promoting good corporate governance.

ID Verification


The intuitive ZoOm interface makes Certified Liveness Detection and 3D Face Matching fast, easy, and incredibly secure
for everyone, regardless of their device. During onboarding, FaceTec’s two-second video-selfie verifies Liveness, matches
the user’s 3D FaceMap to their Photo ID, and sets up their new account. Every time they return, FaceTec’s ongoing
authentication again proves Liveness and compares their new 3D FaceMap to the one enrolled. If they match they get
instant access, no password required!

New & Cutting Edge

FaceTec Age Check bolsters verification

Years of investigation into anti-spoofing agents, such as age estimation, has resulted in watertight facial recognition software.

Years of delving into one of the fastest-growing ID authentication biometric technologies since fingerprint scanning – facial recognition technology – has resulted in a liveness detection service with so many facets, that it is now spoof-resistant.

FaceTec 3D Liveness software enables frictionless, secure transacting

Meet the face authentication market leader that provides more security, portability, and convenience than any other biometric.

Given the sudden explosion in online activity, spurred by a global pandemic that caught the business world off-guard and forced in-person transactions to go fully online almost overnight, corporates and their customers could be sitting ducks for cyber criminals. That is, without the right kind of software “brick wall” to block them.

pbVerify bolsters product stack with PhoneID & Score

Our new mobile phone-based API allows businesses to effectively evaluate their fraud risks and enhance the user experience.

pbVerify has added to its risk management suite of API products, giving businesses even more shield against fraud, and the reputational and revenue blow it causes – this time via mobile phone identification and score.
