Car-Sharing App to Use Jumio for User Authentication

Jumio has announced that its Netverify authentication system will be used by Free2Move, a Europe-based mobile app designed to aggregate car-sharing services like Zipcar and Car2Go onto one platform so that users can see all available options in an area.Car-Sharing App to Use Jumio for User Authentication

Jumio’s Trusted Identity as a Service system will be used to verify the identities and driving credentials of Free2Move users. Using Jumio’s document reading capability, Free2Move users will scan their driver licenses and upload the images to the app. The system will then use facial recognition technology to match the faces on those documents to the users’ selfie pictures, with an added liveness detection capability – “able to pick up on even the slightest facial movement,” according to a statement from Jumio – helping to ensure that the users are who they say they are.

It’s a similar process to the one planned for Saltrex, an online B2B auctioning platform also slated to use Jumio’s technology for user authentication. That integration was also announced this week, suggesting growing momentum for Jumio as it continues to promote its TIaS system.
