What is NFC-based Identity Verification?
The NFC ID verification technology is used to read encrypted data in the chip of identity documents for user verification. With the help of a smartphone, NFC technology can be used to access user’s data from identity documents and validate the document authenticity.
There are more than 2 billion NFC-enabled devices in the world

To authenticate a user’s identity, NFC technology is used to read out the information contained within the chip in the identity document.
While documents can be forged and altered, these chips cannot be tampered with. Therefore, fraudsters have no way to force their way through the KYC check.
Identity verification with NFC technology is more secure & robust compared to traditional methods. With NFC, data can be read directly from the chip in an identity document.
As these chips cannot be tampered with, fraudsters have no way to bypass the KYC checks. You can securely onboard legitimate customers and validate all the data within the chips in an instant.
NFC-enabled document is also known as RFID-chipped documents normally issued by Governments. These documents include passports, ID cards, and driver licenses.
For NFC Identity Verification to work, smartphones should have NFC support and the identity documents must contain the RFID chip. If you are not sure about either of these requirements, please contact our support.
The pricing are always based on a fixed license fee per year per app, up to a certain maximum scanning volume. For usage over this volume additional scanning volume package can be purchased.
Get in touch with our product specialists to get a specified quote based on your use case and scanning volume.
Our mobile scanning solutions are always based on native IOS (Swift) and Android (Kotlin). Next to that, we offer Web SDKs and wrapper libraries for most cross platform languages like Flutter, Nativescript, and Xamarin. Other wrappers like Cordova and Ionic can be provided upon request.
Klippa was founded by developers, which is why we understand the value of a well-documented SDK and software in general. For all our solutions we provide documentation, implementation examples and often also supporting video instructions. Check out our SDK documentation for more information.
