Certn's OneID identity verification check uses biometric facial recognition technology to verify the identity of an individual instantly. It works by matching your candidate's government-issued identification (ID) with a real-time selfie. Our OneID check offers an improved experience for both you and your candidate and eliminates common pain points in the identity verification process:
- Avoid time-consuming processes that frustrate you and your candidates. OneID provides a seamless identity verification process that's easy for you to order and your candidate to complete.
- Don't miss out on great candidates. OneID accepts hundreds of ID types issued globally, so you can verify a candidate's identity regardless of their background.
- Reduce delays and uncertainty in your application process. OneID provides a fast and convenient way to verify that your candidates are who they say they are, right from the start.
How does it work?
During the application process, your candidate takes photos of a piece of government-issued photo ID. They also take a selfie and confirm some personal details including their full name. Using facial recognition technology, OneID then matches the name your candidate provides to the name on their ID, and the facial features in their selfie to those in the photo on their ID. You receive results instantly once the match is complete.
Depending on your needs, you can order a OneID check by itself or as part of an order with other background checks. For more information about ordering OneID checks, refer to Order a OneID check.

OneID checks are available to both Human Resources (HR) and Property Manager (PM) users. Companies can verify the identities of their candidates for employment or tenancy purposes.
Turnaround time for this check
