What is Personal data verification?

Personal data verification is a user data verification service within a Mobile Identity solution.

Personal data verification is technically similar to Silent Mobile Verification, the significant difference being that more user information is transferred in the API calls.

What does Personal data verification do?

With Personal data verification, you can verify user information such as first name, last name, address, and birthdate when subscribing to your service, creating an account, or making a mobile purchase.

Personal data verification cross-checks the data entered by the user with the most current subscriber information held by the appropriate Mobile Network Operator. It returns the accuracy score for each submitter customer.

Personal data verification verifies if the user’s mobile number is prepaid or post-paid, active, only recently activated, or if there have been any changes in the IMSI status – anything suspicious is flagged for further verification. This process can be used throughout the user’s journey as an additional security check for each end-user activity.

What is the difference between data validation and data verification?

Personal data validation occurs when a record is initially created or updated, while Personal data verification checks the current data to ensure accuracy, consistency, and purpose.
