We’ll also be able to expand the reach of our technology so that people without a credit history can finally access the online services they badly need.”

Our goal is to apply cutting-edge research to build powerful, simple products that drive trust, inclusion and safety online.”

 

 

  Onfido added that the investment will accelerate its goal of using AI to standardize the way businesses verify identities in a scalable and secure way. It will also help Onfido consolidate its core market in the U.S., accelerate its expansion into high-growth regions including Europe and South-East Asia, as well as advancing product development.
