Selfie identity verification is a way to confirm who you are by taking a live picture of yourself. This process may also be called selfie authentication or face match check.
Face Match is one of the mandatory checks to complete the verification with Blockpass. We have introduced a new feature called Selfie Liveness to enhance the quality of the KYC verification process. This feature makes it easy for you - the user - to prove that you are the true owner of the identity account you are using to submit information to Blockpass.
When you submit your KYC (Know Your Customer) information to Blockpass, you will need to complete the selfie liveness step. This involves looking at a camera and following the system's instructions to perform certain movements.
How to use selfie liveness?
During the KYC process, you will need to provide all the documents the service requires for identification. The service will ask you to take selfies, and you should follow these steps:
1. Click the Selfie section
2. Select CONTINUE
3. You will need to take three selfies from three different angles. The system will take the picture automatically after about three seconds if you turn your head correctly according to the system's instructions. You will know the image is captured each time you hear the camera sound.
- Front selfie
For the front selfie, make sure your head is within the frame and that only one person is visible.
- Left selfie
For the left selfie, position your head within the frame, slowly turn it to the left at about a 30-degree angle and hold for 3 seconds
- Right selfie
For the right selfie, position your head within the frame, slowly turn it to the right at about a 30-degree angle and hold for 3 seconds
To view the tutorial, you can click on the question mark "?" in the bottom right-hand corner.
4. After taking all three selfies, select 'Save' to submit them or 'Retry' to re-take other selfie images.
