Can’t decide between Smile ID and Onfido?
We can verify ID documents in all 54 African countries
Unlike platforms like Onfido, Smile ID has true coverage of all of Africa. We cover three or more ID documents in most African markets. Our local teams stay updated on new documents being issued across the continent and ensure the latest documents are on file.
We have access to 20+ government ID databases
Verify users confidently using reliable government data.
We have Africa's largest government ID information network, with connections to company registers and individual ID databases in five markets. All of it is reachable with a single API integration.
Our solutions are built for African end-users
Addressing challenges such as spotty internet connectivity and the prevalence of budget smartphones in the region, our approach ensures inclusivity by supporting lower camera quality and older operating systems on various devices used by African consumers.
“Smile ID's Biometric KYC product allows us to verify the true identity of our users quickly and with extreme confidence without having to choose between high growth and fraud mitigation. Our partnership with Smile ID has given us the compliance tools and flexibility we need to move fast and onboard users swiftly”
