Secure Citizen for Business

Customer verification

How we help with customer verification

How can you tell if your customer is who they claim to be? With biometric authentication, you can.

According to our fraud prevention partner, SAFPS, identity theft increased by 356% in South Africa in 2022. It’s not just a frightening statistic for consumers, but businesses alike.

To date, customer verification has been costly, tedious and inefficient, leading to bad customer experiences and an inability to track the identity of known fraudsters. Secure Citizen identity management services offers businesses the ability to work with the correct customer or individual, by having the most up to date contact data at all times.
