COVID-19 Impact on ID Technologies Market

Numerous businesses have increased their identification verification efforts due to the pandemic of COVID-19. Since COVID-19 went into effect, 72% of online marketplaces have increased their adoption of ID verification technology. In addition, more than half of the financial services organizations have promoted the adoption. Consumers have been forced to use digital services for the first time due to lockdown restrictions, and the rapid adoption of identity verification shows how important it is to protect them.

Competitive Insights:

  • Digital identity verification is becoming increasingly important, as companies and governments take advantage of online services. In order to control financial crime, regulatory authorities are increasing their demands on businesses to comply with KYC and AML requirements. FATF (Financial Action Task Force) expanded the scope of reporting entities and recommended that member countries obligate legal professionals.
  • As part of the AML5 Directive (AML5), the European Union reduced the threshold for identity verification for prepaid cards from EUR 250 to EUR 150. The directive was implemented by all member states in January 2020. AML5 regulations aim at transforming KYC processes to comply with AML and eIDAS standards and procedures and establish guidelines for verifying customers at a high-security level.
  • LoginID Inc. and Ipsidy Inc. created a partnership that provides new tools to fight fraud in online activities in September 2020. As a result of the integration between Ipsidy's biometric identity verification platform and LoginID's FIDO as a Service platform, the companies will provide enhanced security and level of identity trust for users requiring FIDO2 authentication and login.
  • In order to differentiate itself from its competitors, Metal Pay, a peer-to-peer payments company that allows users to buy, sell, trade, and send crypto using crypto trading pairs or fiat money, wanted to offer an account opening process that is both quick and seamless. Identity verification during account opening became a critical element of minimizing risk and eliminating fraud at the company since it had to meet strict AML and KYC practices.
  • Jumio released its video verification solution with face biometrics in October 2020 for businesses in regulated industries to onboard new customers. Jumio Video Verification was designed specifically for businesses within the financial sector, such as banking, fintech firms, cryptocurrency exchanges, and digital wallets.
