Vouched is providing a selfie-based onboarding system for the platform; as FreedomID explains, an end user is asked to upload a live selfie and an image of their photo ID, along with information including phone number and email address. That launches an automated verification process, with a manual review triggered if the account set-up process does not meet FreedomID’s risk criteria.
Stuart Watkins, Zenoo CEO, expressed that FreedomID was initially developed to protect Ukrainian refugees and is now striving to become the global standard for safeguarding vulnerable individuals affected by crises. The collaboration with Vouched and access to its industry-leading identity verification solution enable FreedomID to extend its assistance to more people, helping them avoid exploitative situations while transitioning to new locations.
The FreedomID platform offers easy integration with other technologies and data sources, empowering governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and other entities in their fight against human trafficking. It is also designed to help provide safe passage for displaced individuals and their families by offering ID verification services for refugee hosts, drivers, volunteers, and refugees themselves, ensuring a secure environment for all parties involved.
