How Jumio Helps


Age Verification

Jumio’s ID Verification extracts personal information such as date of birth from a wide variety of government-issued photo IDs, which is then used to calculate the current age of the person creating the account.

Fraud Prevention

Jumio’s Identity Verification solution requires a valid government-issued ID and a selfie. This provides a powerful fraud-prevention tool, as many minors generally prefer not to use their own likeness if they’re trying to use a parent’s ID to make an online purchase.

Liveness Detection

Given the rise of spoofing (the act of using a photo, video or a different substitute for an authorized person’s face), Jumio employs state-of-the-art liveness detection as a means of biometric screening to ensure that the person creating the account or making an online purchase is physically present.

Ongoing Authentication

After legitimate customers have verified themselves online through the legal age check process, Jumio Authentication ensures all future logins and checkouts are being made by the original account owner. It can also be deployed in-store.

Meet Compliance Mandates

Keep up to date with the latest FDA age verification requirements, state laws and merchant account policies. Our verification rules are customizable and can be adapted to your verification workflow or regulatory requirements in your industry.

Protect Brand Reputation

Age restricted providers that perform efficient KYC are less likely to face heavy fines for negligence, and performing these validation checks may help maintain your brand reputation as well. Show the world that you take the safety of minors seriously.

Online and In-store Verification

Intuitive digital and kiosk-driven experiences help you verify the age of all customers in real-time, whether they’re online or in store. It’s a simple user experience that does not interrupt consumers from making transactions if they are indeed the appropriate age.

Simplify Deliveries

Help drivers with in-person alcohol, marijuana, vaping and tobacco deliveries with a quick and easy means of age verification.

Simple, Secure Age Verification

"We are absolutely convinced that Jumio’s tried, tested and recognized identity and age verification services will greatly support a seamless onboarding process for new customers."
