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.

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.
