No need to verify identity?


An extract from Revolut’s FAQs:

“Some UK users won’t need to verify their identity, as we’ll do it electronically behind the scenes”.

How does that work then?


On line credit referencing, driving licence and passport checking.


But in these instances, Revolut are not actually seeing the user’s passport, so how do they check it?

If these UK user’s accounts are supposedly verified purely on the personal information that the user inputs into the app, how can Revolut establish that no identity fraud is taking place?


I did an in app scan of my driving licence and in app selfie which were automatically compared and verified.
