In our digital age with threats of identity fraud or online counterfeiting, reliable identity verification solutions are increasingly important. Companies in sensitive industries such as banking, insurance or telecommunications are faced with the challenge of verifying their users’ identities securely and effectively.

However, despite the clear advantages of digital identity verification, there is still a much more basic task to tackle, the increase of user acceptance. Many users abandon verification processes due to their complexity and time-consuming nature. In the end, companies often suffer significant losses, because they are only allowed to grant access to their services or products after successful identity verification.

However, identity verification doesn't have to be complicated and time-consuming. Find out now how PXL Vision can increase the user acceptance of your identity verification process.

Methods of identity verification

When it comes to identity verification, companies have various methods at their disposal to verify their users’ identities.

  • Bank-Ident and Post-Ident are procedures that require the user to appear in person at a bank or post office branch to present their identification documents and confirm their identity. Though reliable, these procedures are particularly time-consuming for users, as they have to appear in person on site.
  • Video-Ident makes it possible to verify your identity online. During a video call, the user will be assisted by a company employee who checks identification documents. Although this method is more convenient for the user, it still requires a stable internet connection for the live video transmission, and the service is not always quick to access.
  • Giro-Ident is a procedure offered by some banks that runs through the user's current account. The bank confirms the identity on the basis of already existing customer data. This procedure is especially convenient for bank customers, as no additional appointments are required. However, it presupposes that the user already has a bank account.
  • Auto-Ident is an innovative solution that uses artificial intelligence and automated processes to verify identities. Users submit a selfie and a scan of their ID. The system verifies the identity using biometrics and other security features in a matter of seconds. This procedure is user-friendly and doesn’t require a manual review by employees. As a result, it offers maximum flexibility and convenience for the user.

Why user acceptance is important

User acceptance is extremely important for identity verification. Complicated and time-consuming verification processes often lead to users abandoning the process prematurely. Low user acceptance means that potential customers avoid using the services or completing transactions to avoid the verification process. And more dropouts mean less revenue.

Similarly, low user acceptance can undermine trust in the company, while a high level of user acceptance strengthens the customers’ trust in the company. As customers discover that a company’s verification processes are simple and straightforward, without unnecessary complications, trust is built right from the start. Satisfied customers are loyal customers, which is great for long-term customer relationships again.

An intuitive and fast verification system can increase user acceptance and ultimately lead to success. Other benefits that come with high user acceptance include, but are not limited to, fewer instances of fraud and financial abuse, reduced abandonment rates, increased completion rates, and higher profit margins.
