About this app

Recognize document type, perform OCR, read MRZ, RFID chip and barcode data and verify all kinds of identity documents automatically on your device. Take images using the device camera or select images from the gallery. Rapid, reliable, secure. Offline processing. No data leaves your device.

Whether it is an ICAO 9303 travel document with the MRZ, like a passport, ID card, visa, or a non-ICAO non-machine readable document, like a driver's license, vehicle registration certificate or work permit - you can read and verify its data in an instant.
Position a document in front of the camera and make sure it fully fits in the frame. Lighting conditions do matter - try to get more light but avoid glare and shadow.
The document will be detected, cropped and recognized. Graphic and text fields will be extracted, parsed and verified automatically.

I use this app daily in the course of law enforcement duties. It has helped me detect altered documents, particularly when the visual zone does not match the information or photo stored on a passport chip. Depending on the passport's country of origin, additional information such as home address, names of parents, etc are also available.

Amazing app. Or maybe just the 'demo' of the SDK\API\TECH\KNOW-HOW of the company and it's capabilities to deliver tailored-solution for clients and their needs. But even this demo -- helped me a lot -- ... it's still helping me a lot -- to be precise. Now presenting some foreign and\rare PhotoIDs -- Driving Licence -- ID Card -- Passport --- by some dudes who think they are clever --- can lead very quickly to certain unexpected consequences that this people failed to foreseen.
