Identity document authentication solutions provider ICAR has brought a liveness requirement to its desktop and mobile platforms. They now require users to perform specific movements, such as blinking, when submitting their selfies for authentication.
The company has also instituted a feature that should improve the user experience: When a user is taking a photo of a document for validation, the system will automatically adjust focus and framing to ensure that the document is captured accurately.
Primarily servicing the financial, retail, telecommunications, and travel sectors, ICAR says it processes over two million identity validations per year. Among its clients are CaixaBank, Mobile World Congress 2016, and NEON.
