Introduction to ID CARDS &
Some IDs, such as driver’s licences, are nationally regarded as credible, high quality identification documents. Anyone who has undergone the process of applying for a driver’s licence knows that there is a strict application process that requires a range of supporting documentation proving that you are who you say you are. Fake IDs have been linked to identity theft, bank fraud, social security fraud, illegal purchase of goods and a range of other criminal activities.
The effects of fake IDs continue to trouble governments today. On March 22nd of 2018, a man in the United States used a fake ID to steal a Porsche from a car dealership.
VeriDoc Global has developed a verification system that leverages blockchain technology and smart contracts. Our solution allows you to verify that the ID you are looking at is the true and correct ID.

Security has never been so important, and in this day and age as we shift from physical to digital ID’s we need a technology in place that can make this happen conveniently and securely.
You're able to test it out and scan the QR codes yourself on your smartphone to see the technology working for yourself.

Fake IDs are usually copies of genuine IDs or illegally modified genuine IDs made by unauthorised persons.
There is currently no way of quickly verifying if the ID you are looking at is a true and correct document. We’ve seen many times in cinematic movies that it’s easy to create a fake ID and if you run a search on Google you’d be surprised how many businesses actually promote this type of service.
VeriDoc Global has developed a solution that involves embedding a QR code on an ID with a unique digital hash inside the QR code. The hash holds a string of information that is then placed on the blockchain network for security, verification and most important end user validation.
Using any QR code reading app, scan the QR code on the ID card and the app will show you the true document produced by the issuer. This allows you to compare and see if the ID card is an original or a fake.
