About this app

The ReadID Me 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 Me app including FAQs (https://www.inverid.com/readid-me-app).

We provide the ReadID Me app free of charge to allow people to see what information is in the chip of your own passport.

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@inverid.com.

Tried multiple passports - once it gets to the NFC scanning stage an error appears "Connection lost, automatically restarting" but then it goes back to the previous page. App hasnt worked as funtioned once, whereas other, simpler open source apps work first time.

Unfortunate that you could not read any passport. There are many potential causes, but if you are getting "connection lost" continuously it is possible that the device's NFC antenna is stuck in a bad state. This is something we have no control over, but can be resolved by killing and restarting the app or by rebooting the device.

A security agent at an airport told me my passport wouldn't "scan" and I was concerned about upcoming international travel for work. This app allowed me to verify that my passport is still valid, which saved an unnecessary trip to the passport agency for emergency replacement. Great little tool.

I am using this app and works perfect. But my friend residence card revoked last month but the app does not show any detail about visa revoked. Why?

Thank you for the review! ReadID Me shows only the data on the chip of your document. A revocation of a VISA is not "saved" on the chip data, but it is saved in a database of the concerning government. ^ID

What's new

Small improvement to NFC reading.
