Netverify Wants to Check Your ID

Mobile payments company Jumio has brought their desktop app, Netverify, to mobile today, giving app developers the tools needed to verify user identities by simply photographing a driver’s license or passport.  Pricing is a bit steep at $2 per scan, but that could be money well spent for certain marketplaces to quickly verify users to deliver sensitive or personalized content, or to auto-fill form fields for the purpose of making transactions.  In any case, the benefits for companies and consumers alike are great – reducing online fraud, and speeding the process of making transactions from mobile devices.
