Digital innovation for a safer and better life

Making our lives and our work easier and safer. That premise should always be our main motivation for innovations. Inverid aims to reduce identity fraud, and create a safe digital environment to meet demands for online identity-sensitive services. 

ReadID is a product of Inverid. Founded in 2013 and headquartered in the Netherlands, Inverid is a privately-owned company. Inverid started as a research-based advisory company in digital innovation for governments, the financial industry, and service providers. In 2014 we were the first worldwide to launch NFC-based identity verification. ReadID is firmly rooted in the result of Inverid's research activities and is now Inverid's core activity.
