Frequently Asked Questions


Once verified, each user is assigned a highly secure next-gen QR code and a unique 16 digit token that corresponds ONLY with their specific biometric data. The patented technology uses advanced cryptography, with one of the benefits being that we only need to share essential data - and always with consent. App users retain their privacy; organisations can be certain that their customers are real and who they say they are.

Our world-class facial recognition technology has been validated by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), who has declared it the most accurate software in situations that reflect real life scenarios, with the fastest matching capability most resistant to variants in angle and age. The software has also been tested on individuals of different ethnicities with varying skin tones, with no variance to accuracy levels identified.
