SmileID, the only fully trustworthy authentication service

Introducing SmileID, our digital authentication service based on facial biometrics.

What is an authentication service?

An authentication service aims to ensure that the person can access a platform and make use of services or manage issues online in a secure way.

Our authentication service is based on facial biometrics, the process of verifying a person’s identity through their face, which has become a secure, effective and fast authentication alternative.

SmileID: Different and unrivaled

SmileID checks identity remotely in a few seconds, backed by VideoID processes that fully comply with the security standards of AML5 directive and eIDAS regulation.

We can explain in three points the competitive advantages of SmileID:

  • It is the only one, worldwide, whose registration gives total confidence of the person’s identity, as it is done at the moment we know the customer when acquiring it, with our VideoID patented technology.
  • It is the only one that can be applied in an omnichannel strategy. Typically, biometrics resides in the device in which it is created, being susceptible to loss and not being used to authenticate in other channels, such as the face-to-face (commercial offices or ATMs) or any other device.
  • The whole process is done in a matter of seconds, in which a life test is registered and a video is recorded while artificial intelligence verifies the person’s biometric pattern.

SmileID: Where is it used?

The use of SmileID as a facial biometrics system takes place in many daily processes.

The most prominent use cases are the following:

  • Payments: Make payments and purchases online or in person at any time and from any device with a camera. Show your face, smile, and the operation is carried out immediately.

  • 2nd authentication factor in operations: When conventional passwords are not enough, SmileID is complemented by passwords to guarantee the highest level of security in sensitive processes.
  • Biometric Chek-in in transportation: Flights, train trips or hotels; forget about tickets, pdfs or cumbersome registrations in apps thanks to SmileID.
  • Access control to buildings or events: Ensuring speed and avoiding queues, with wide reliability using this authentication service for offices or tickets to events from concerts to shareholders meetings. 
  • Queue optimization in offices and stores: Streamline procedures in banks or other offices and optimize times thanks to SmileID.
