Physical Tamper Detection

A photo of a printed/displayed digitally tampered image does not contain any traces of digital tampering because it’s a genuine digital image. Therefore, detecting recaptured images is key to fraud prevention.

If a picture of a document has been used for customer checks, our technology can determine the original print quality of the document. We can verify if the image captured is of a real document or a home-printed, fraudulent version.

Comprehensive tools for complete assurance

Access to a global library of more than 4,000 document types means a 100% decision rate for your customers being onboarded. We identify feature and noise levels of regions that correspond to printed characters and detect whether the image is an authentic physical ID document or a recapture on paper or a screen. And in the case of digital tampering being detected, you’ll get notified with clear visuals in your Investigation Studio for use in your compliance audit trail.
