Our KYC Process

PXL Ident addresses multiple use cases in one application. Our platform is simple, easy and quick to use for end customers and can be flexibly integrated into existing KYC processes.

To simplify the KYC procedure, we have divided the platform into four stages - user registration, identity verification, additional optional checks and handover. Each stage can be configured and adapted to meet individual needs.


1. User registration


  • You are directly transferred from the already existing process steps of a company to PXL Ident, without having to download an app.
  • Enter the transaction code.
  • From here, detailed instructions and animations will guide you through the entire process.

User authentication (text message/e-mail verification)

  • Accept the Terms of Use and verify your phone number or e-mail address (two-factor authentication process).

Self-declaration and address verification

  • Complete the self-declaration form with your personal data:

    • First Name, Surname, Address
    • Gender, Birthdate, Nationality
    • E-mail-Address, Mobile Phone Number
  • In case this data has already been collected in previous processes from the initiating company, the form can be prefilled or skipped.
  • Note: it is possible to integrate third-party address validation (Post API) as well.

2. Identity verification

Document verification

  • Select one of the pre-defined document types and scan the document.
  • Alternately, the ID scan can automatically detect the matching template for you as you capture the document.
  • PXL Ident will extract the document’s data while simultaneously performing real-time image quality analysis, template matching and fraud prevention checks.
  • Take a video of the ID document to record security features. (optional)

Face verification

  • A short selfie-video is recorded and compared to the photo on the ID document.
  • PXL’s biometric facial recognition checks the similarities between the two and matches the ID document to the user.

Liveness detection

  • Our passive liveness detection checks that a real person is behind the camera.
  • It works without friction or the need to follow any specific instructions.
  • The goal is to avoid print, replay and mask attacks.
