The typical outcomes of a MetaMap verification include “verified,” “unverified,” or “requires review.” These results are determined based on the consistency and authenticity of the data checked during the verification process. 

Additionally, MetaMap provides a feature called Automation Rules, which allows you to define specific criteria to automatically approve, reject, or flag customers for further review within your chosen workflows. This feature streamlines your decision-making process, significantly reducing the need for manual intervention by tailoring automation processes to fit your unique business needs, thereby ensuring optimal control over your operations.

MetaMap itself does not reject users; it provides verification results based on which businesses can make informed decisions.

Your business can create multiple workflows tailored to your verification needs, each with customized steps and checks.

MetaMap supports various documents for verification, including passports, driver’s licenses, and other government-issued IDs. Please click here to read a list of supported documents by country. Click the links to learn more about the Document Verification Tool and the Government Verification Tool.

MetaMap utilizes diverse data sources to perform comprehensive verifications, ensuring robust support for KYC and AML compliance and reducing the risk of fraud. Our solution cross-references the information provided by customers against an extensive database that includes data from government institutions worldwide. These sources encompass electoral institutes, population registries, tax agencies, immigration institutes, and criminal records. By integrating such varied and authoritative data sources, MetaMap enhances the accuracy of its verifications and provides businesses with a reliable foundation for making informed decisions.

Product Exploration

Enhance security, balancing robust protection and a seamless user experience.

MetaMap operates by aggregating data from 80+ global sources across 20+ countries to conduct thorough identity verifications, which include biometrics, official documents, and background checks. This data is organized into discrete information units called ‘merits,’ allowing exact verification flows.

Businesses can integrate only the necessary data points, ensuring efficient and tailored verification processes. Businesses can construct these verification flows using a drag-and-drop workflow builder or utilize pre-designed templates for ease of implementation.

MetaMap also offers straightforward integration options for websites and apps through direct links, SDKs, or APIs, enabling seamless and uncomplicated coding integration. This structured yet flexible approach provides businesses with a deeper understanding of their users, facilitating informed business decisions.

The platform offers tools for integral verification workflows that are divided into three main categories.

  • Compliance. These tools help meet local and international compliance requirements. These include merits like proving citizenship, residency address, non-criminal history, tax history, consent, and much more.
  • Government. Tools that aid in performing a comprehensive check on the customer against trustable and reliable government databases.
  • Financial. Tools designed to assist in analyzing the customer’s financial risk. They include merits such as bank balance, income stability, earning potential, consumption patterns, loan repayment history, asset ownership, and more.

This level of customization ensures that the verification system aligns perfectly with your operational goals and compliance needs.

MetaMap performs checks to verify authenticity, such as document validity, tampering or falsification signs, and data consistency against official data sources. Please read more about Document Verification here.

You can test different scenarios, track results, and make educated decisions on onboarding or verifying every customer type and situation. The verification statuses typically include:

  • Postponed. If there is something in the verification process that caused a delay.
  • Running. When the verification is in process.
  • Verified. The verification passed every check you configured on your dashboard (document requirements, biometrics requirements, additional checks, etc…).
  • Rejected. When the information provided by the user does not match the official records, if there are inconsistencies in the documents provided or other mismatches.
  • Review Needed. This occurs when MetaMap flags something unusual with a verification. This may happen for various reasons, such as fake ID, watchlist flag, and failing face match. Since our customers’ business rules and use cases differ, we allow your business to take the final decision of accepting/rejecting the user.

You can establish rules to address common errors and run your verification workflows seamlessly according to your business needs.

Information such as name, date of birth, address, document number, nationality, and expiration date is extracted during the verification process. Please learn more about Document Verification here
