What is KYC software?

Howard Schulman

Banks must verify the identity of their clients “when opening an account and periodically over time. KYC checks are done through an independent and reliable source of documents, data, or other information. Each client is required to provide credentials to prove identity and address. In order to comply with KYC regulations, KYC Software helps make this process more streamlined.  Lightico’s KYC Software simplifies this for both banks and their customers through digitization. Customers simply send a government-issued ID to their bank, along with a live selfie with their mobile phone camera. Lightico uses forensic-level forgery and spoofing auto-detection to determine whether there is a match.
