How it works

Invitation with link to start page

You receive a personal invitation from an organization with a request to verify your identity using CheckedID. From this invitation you can click through to a start page. Here a QR code and a button with a direct link to the CheckedID app are displayed.

Info on the verification process

A short description of the verification process and what happens with the requested data is displayed. Data will only be used for this specific verification. After sending, all data will be erased from the device. Click on ‘Start’.

Photo of ID document

Choose the document with which you will identify yourself: ID card (or residence permit), passport or driving licence. Then, take a photo of the ID document. The app provides instructions, and when the conditions are satisfied the photo is automatically taken.

Photos of additional documents

If needed, you can take photos of other documents. Like a diploma, a utility bill, a bank statement and/or payslip. A maximum of 5 documents can be added.

Selfie of holder

You’re now asked to take a selfie. Hold the device right in front of your face and follow the instructions on the screen. Look straight at the screen and clearly blink your eyes to demonstrate you are a living person. The photo will be taken automatically.

Read the chip

With an Android phone you read the chip from the ID document using the embedded NFC function. First scan the Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) on the document to unlock the chip. Then, read data from the chip by holding the ID document against the back of the phone.

Send data

You are now shown an overview of collected data. To approve this, click ‘Send’. After sending, the verification is executed remotely and all collected data will be deleted from the device. The outcome will be sent in a secured report to the organization that invited you. The verification is completed!


Take control with CheckedID

Businesses and organizations regularly ask for an ID document to know who they are dealing with. The way in which that happens, however, often leaves much to be desired. This creates risks for both the person to be identified and the requesting party. Personal information can leak away. Consider, for example, a photo of an ID document on a mobile phone or computer, which is then sent to the cloud or an email address. Or a printed copy of an ID document in the trash bin or in the memory of the copier. In other words, there is no control over where this data ends up. And then the question still remains whether the correct ID document has been received.
CheckedID distinguishes itself by offering a complete service to verify identities of persons. Making data leaks impossible. Reading the chip in the ID document makes CheckedID maximally reliable, and unique. Finally, the secure verification report serves as proof that the identification has been thoroughly done.
