Guides   |   Liveness


The liveness check will allow verification of an individual to ensure the person is real (i.e. not just a photo)


What does liveness do?

Currently the liveness service is only available on mobile devices. The result is stored in the verification history for the document-verification-id provided in the input header. The result will also be used in the combined scoring process.

How does liveness work?

The action based liveness process works by asking the user to perform certain actions in front of their camera.  "Smile", "Frown", "Look Left" etc. are asked and the liveness engine detects the movements to determine whether the individual is real and present whilst following the instructions.
