About this app

The ReadID demo app (previously known as NFC Passport Reader) reads and verifies the NFC chip embedded in electronic passports, national identity cards and other ICAO compliant identity documents (ePassport, or, in ICAO 9309 terminology, Machine Readable Travel Documents: MRTD). The app optically scans (OCR) the Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) to gain access to the embedded chip. It then reads the embedded chip using NFC and displays the biographical and biometric information of the document holder, as well as document information, after which security checks, such as Active Authentication, Chip Authentication and Passive Authentication , are performed and detailed results are shown.

The app also supports electronic driving licenses (eDL, ISO 18013, currently limited to Dutch driving licenses from after November 2014).

Please see our website for more information on how to use the ReadID demo app including FAQs (https://www.readid.com/demo).

We provide the ReadID demo app free of charge to demonstrate and improve the underlying ReadID software. If you see opportunities to use ReadID, for example as part of the traditional border control inspection system use case or as part of innovative online use cases such as customer onboarding, then please contact us at readid@innovalor.nl.

Great app. I was recently told at a UK airport that my UK passport chip is broken, but have since tried this app numerous times and everything seems to read and validate completely as expected (the only thing not supported is active authentication which I assume my passport doesn't have). Presumably this is enough assurance that my passport chip is not in fact broken?

Thanks for the review. Active Authentication is indeed often not present on passports, a country can choose to not implement it, and this does not make the passport broken. It the passport now works with ReadID, it indeed is not broken. But there may be incompatibilities with the equipment used at a specific airport.^MW

This application is simply amazing and it allows you to test the electronic smartcard embedded in your passport.

Used the wide lense, I was unable to change the camera, so it couldn't read the document
