How Identity Verification Works
Check and correct a name, address (including enrichment of geodata, if possible), email and/or phone number.
Personator will match and confirm the valid data against external official and international data sources. Depending on the scenario, different checks are possible (e.g., 2+2 check).
There are options to use the mobile identity verification and/or a customer screening – for even greater security.
Contact Data Verification
Our international address verification, name parsing, email & phone check can be used individually or parallel. Verify, standardize, & transliterate addresses with our leading address engine. Verify emails to the mailbox-level. Ensure phones are live & callable. Over 6 million last names & 4 million first names are recognized. Names & address are verified before proof of address to get an exact match.
Proof of Address
Connects a person's name to a specific address to confirm proof of address in real time. Proof of address is available in select countries including US, Germany & others. By leveraging 2.1 billion records, we perform a simple check to ensure the person actually lives at the provided address – a light-weight, quick check that goes a long way to providing enhanced fraud prevention.
