How it works

SP issues a request for the KYC Match service via the Mobile Connect API to the user’s operator including the information that they would like the operator to compare against their own records.

The operator processes the request, obtaining consent from the user (via their mobile device) for performing the comparison where required.

If consented to, the operator compares the received user information against their own records and returns a true/false result to the SP for each attribute that is compared.

Example use cases

Easy enrolment to new services by re-using the validated user identity previously captured by the operator

ID check for compliance with regulations

User identification to call centre or corporate

Remote ID & verification use cases in banking for new users & KYC refresh

Anti-money laundering (AML) check for online gambling

Basic compliance check for small value money transfers

Card enrolment/ID verification in mobile wallet
