The Complete KYC/B (Know Your Customer or Business) Guide


Identity verification is vital when authenticating a user. Our identity validation helps to reduce risk and fraud. Without the ability to digitally validate an end-user’s identity in real-time, consumers may upload false credentials.


MeVerify Identity product helps you verify users' identities by accessing the information on file with their financial institution and retrieve a full KYC profile for an individual or corporate entity across all banks in Nigeria. Using Identity, you can access a user's phone number, email address, mailing address, many more. This can be used for prefilling account information, as well as for verifying with a trusted source that information they provided about themselves is correct. Fraud reduction and complementing of Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance are common applications for Identity.
