Services and products

Idwall provides a number of identity and data verification services, including data extraction in document with OCR, face match, background track, mobile SDK, and documentoscopy.

Data extraction

Idwall's data extraction solution receives a photo of a CNH, RG, or CRLV and identifies the type of document. The tool then extracts information and processes it in the following ways:

  • Classification with automatic identification and classification of the type of document
  • Analysis of image quality
  • Automatic rejection of photos that are not documents
  • Categorizing of documents into structured information
  • Integration via API, SDK or Dashboards
Face match

The face recognition technology reduces the risk of impersonation fraud by comparing a selfie and the photo used in documents. The solution has active and passive proof-of-life (Liveness). The tool reduces fraud of biometric verification by asking users to smile and then using artificial intelligence to detect if the user is genuine.

Background check

Background Check consults data that is automatically searching for essential information in more than 200 data sources for individuals and companies. This enables streamlining of customers' and partners' onboarding processes, without neglecting the business security.

Mobile SDK

Idwall's mobile SDK allows multiple integrations for verification, with the following features:

  • Simplified Integration
  • Tools that reduce user error in document capture and selfie
  • Active and passive life tests
  • Document classification
  • Customization for brand color schemes

Documentoscopy determines the veracity and authenticity of an identification document, through analysis that confirms whether a document was, in fact, produced (or at least issued) by the person, agency, company or entity to which it is assigned; whether it has undergone any changes after its completion; or even if it was assembled.
