“Integrated into partner platforms, the system enables end users to confirm their identities just by taking a selfie photo and a picture of their official identity documents, which it automatically matches.”
Mitek has enhanced the desktop version of its selfie-based authentication system, bring its MiSnap solution over from the mobile experience.
The company’s technology is designed to facilitate reliable identity verification by combining facial recognition with document reading. Integrated into partner platforms, the system enables end users to confirm their identities just by taking a selfie photo and a picture of their official identity documents, which it automatically matches.
MiSnap plays an important role in this process, analyzing document images to make sure they’re of optimum quality, and prompting the end user with real-time commands so that the document is positioned properly for capture. While MiSnap has been integral to the mobile experience, it’s new to the web-based desktop version of Mitek’s solution.
“By bringing Mitek’s superior document auto-capture experience to desktops, we’re ensuring users get the same seamless and easy-to-use experience regardless of the device they are using,” explained Mitek VP and Head of Product Sanjay Gupta in a statement announcing the upgrade. Gupta added that the MiSnap technology “improves image acceptance rates for authentication and onboarding,” asserting that it can boost the image acceptance rate by 35 percent.
That enhancement should help to further boost the appeal of Mitek’s solution, especially as end users increasingly expect the same user experience across all digital channels.
