Why choose Smile ID?
Our solutions are built for African end-users
Addressing challenges such as spotty internet connectivity and the prevalence of budget smartphones in the region, our approach ensures inclusivity by supporting lower camera quality and older operating systems on various devices used by African consumers.
We can verify ID documents in all 54 African countries
We cover three or more ID documents in most African markets. Our local teams stay updated on new documents being issued across the continent and ensure the latest documents are on file.
Our customers love our service
Our customer success team, based across Africa, is well-versed in common ID errors, fraud methods, and failure reasons in each market we serve. As our core focus is empowering businesses scaling in Africa, you will always remain our top priority.
We access the most reliable data sources
Our data is all sourced directly from government registries or fully licensed legal providers. This guarantees that we get the most up-to-date and accurate records, observe less downtime and that user personal information is secured on reliable servers.
Top-tier security and compliance
We take security and compliance seriously. We are the only African IDV providers with SOC2 and ISO27001 compliance certifications, adhering to the highest data protection and security standards.
“I'd say Smile ID is connected to our ethos of simplicity. They have made our onboarding process a whole lot more efficient and simple. It has taken down around 90% of the fictitious sign-ups that we observe, and it's been very effective in that light.”
