ReadID Me NFC app

Try our free ReadID Me app

The ReadID Me app (previously known as NFC Passport Reader) reads and verifies the RFID chip embedded in your electronic passport and other ICAO-compliant identity documents (ePassports, or in ICAO Doc 9303 terminology, electronic Machine Readable Travel Documents, eMRTD).

The app optically scans the data page including the Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) to gain access to the embedded chip. It then reads the embedded chip and displays the biographical and biometric information of the document holder, as well as document information, after which security checks, such as Active Authentication, Document Signature Validation, and Country Signature Validation, are performed and detailed results are shown.

Download the ReadID Me app from Google Play or the App Store to read and verify your identity documents.

FAQ ReadID Me apps

Why do you provide this app?

We do this to help you understand the underlying ReadID software to read/verify the contactless chip in passports and similar identity documents. We license this underlying software to our customers, who can then build their own apps with this. Since this licensing pays our bills, we can provide the ReadID Me app for free and without advertisements.

How can I scan a QR code to verify my identity?

To do this you need to download a different app. Search in the App or Play Store for ‘ReadID Ready’. This app has the option to verify your identity for a third party by securely sharing the information read from your identity document only with them. For this, you need to start a personal session by scanning a QR code or clicking a link that the third party provides to you. This cannot be done through this ReadID demo app as all the read data read will remain on your device.

Can I really use this app for, e.g., my work?

This version of the app is provided as-is and without warranty. We make no claims about its suitability for any particular purpose. We also want to emphasise that the country signature validation is limited to a static list of country (CSCA) certificates embedded in the app and that this list may not be correct and complete.

The scan step (MRZ) fails, what can I do?

First, make sure the camera can clearly see the Machine Readable Zone (MRZ, the bottom 2 or 3 lines of the passport/identity card), taking care that there are no fingers in the way and that there is no glare of a lamp over the MRZ. Simply put, if you cannot see the MRZ, neither can our software. Tilting the passport a little often helps, or shielding the passport from the glare of a light source. If this fails, you can always input the required information from the MRZ by hand, by tapping the button with a keyboard on it. In rare cases, the app may get the MRZ wrong, you can then use the same manual input mode to correct the information.
