CIAM Account Recovery

The C in CIAM stands for Chips

NFC chip scans of identity documents can protect all stages of the Identity and Access management lifecycle- sign up, sign in, authorisation, and recovery. Over a billion people can already use their most secure proof of identity: their chipped identity document.

What makes chipped documents so secure? Deepfakes, bots, and scammers simply cannot imitate valid identity documents with digitally verifiable chips.

Easy to use

A familiar user experience, just like paying by phone in stores. It works with all modern smartphones.

How does it work?

In three simple steps, your customers can verify their identity securely anywhere at any time. ReadID is easy to use, scales limitlessly, and our analytics prove high conversion rates.

You can add ReadID to your own apps with our SDK or add your branding to our ready-to-use ReadID Ready app. Complement NFC with biometric verification and fall back to optical technology for people who don't have chipped documents.

Your passport recovers Passkeys

Passkeys are bound to your device, which is great for eliminating phishable passwords.

But what happens to your passkeys when you break or lose your device?

Customer Identity and Access Management professionals must build recovery processes that underpin cryptographic authentication, not undermine it. Document chip cryptography matches the security levels needed for FIDO Passkey recovery, allowing seamless account recovery.
