Safeguard Your Business with Superior Biometrics
Application of Biometrics and Digital ID
Biometrics lets you build your user base with confidence. Each user has one face, and the biometric formula derived from that face will be recognized if the user tries to open another account under a different email or username.
Award-winning NEC biometrics algorithms and the NEC platform are more reliable than typical device-based systems, which can be circumvented. If a user loses their phone, re-establishing secure accounts on the new device is faster with NEC biometric verification.
How It Works
NEC's identity services integrate with your app, where the user sets up their Digital Token.
The user can use several fintech apps but has only one profile for each, based on the unique Digital Token.
Authenticating the biometric Digital Token stored on each user's phone with the encryption key on the NEC Digital Platform means they are protected even if your database is breached. Hackers can't make fraudulent transactions.
The Digital Token is stored on their phone, not your centralized server, so it cannot be stolen in a data breach.
Once a Digital Token is established via an app, the same unique Digital Token is used for all apps enabled by NEC identity services.
Use Cases and Benefits
The introduction of Biometric Digital IDs in dating and matchmaking applications can enhance security, improve the authenticity of profiles, and ultimately transform user experience. Here are some more specific ways these solutions can be utilized:
- Profile Authenticity: A key challenge in dating apps is the prevalence of catfishing – where users create fake profiles using someone else's photos or heavily manipulated images. Biometric digital IDs can tackle this problem by verifying that the user's profile picture matches their real-time facial scan.
- Real-time Verification: Besides the initial profile setup, biometric digital IDs can be used for regular real-time verification. Before engaging in a chat or a video call, users can be asked to perform a quick facial scan to confirm their identity, making it more difficult for someone to maintain a fake profile.
- Identity Continuity: Biometric digital IDs can also help maintain identity continuity. If a user wants to change their profile picture, they must verify that the new picture matches the established biometric ID. This can prevent users from misleading others with outdated or overly edited photos.
- Reported Profile Verification: When a profile is reported as potentially fake or misleading, the platform can prompt the user to verify their identity again using their biometric digital ID. This quick response can increase the efficiency of the moderation team and build trust among the user community.
- Age Verification: Age misrepresentation is another significant concern in dating and matchmaking applications. Biometric digital IDs can assist in validating a user's age, ensuring compliance with age restrictions, and protecting underage individuals.
- Preventing Duplicate Profiles: Biometric digital IDs can prevent users from creating multiple profiles on the same platform, a common practice used to deceive others or bypass previous blocks or bans.
- Safety Feature: For an added layer of safety, a dating app could integrate a feature where users can choose to only interact with, or be visible to, other users who have verified their accounts using biometric digital IDs.
In implementing these features, it's crucial that dating and matchmaking applications uphold high standards of user privacy, data security, and ethical use of biometric technology. As such, all biometric data should be stored securely, used responsibly, and only with the users’ explicit consent.
