A Closer Look- The Vyyer Whitepaper
A light technical breakdown into how Vyyer ID verification works, how it stacks up to the competition, and the impact our tech has on the industry and economy at large.
Stop fakes dead in their tracks using our best-in-class ID verification solution! We’re even able to catch the highest effort fake IDs on the market.
Our technology allows us to deliver verification results in under 0.1 seconds from the moment the ID is scanned, drastically reducing customer abandonment.
Our one of a kind verification process doesn’t rely on any sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII) nor does it use a national database of any kind.
By modernizing barcode verification, we’re able to deliver next-gen performance at a price point that’s radically less than that of our competitors.
How it works
We’re able to catch the highest effort fakes using a blend of three techniques, primarily using barcodes. And when we say “accuracy” we mean catch-rate.
The Vyyer Solution
You'll often see our big name competitors touting crazy numbers, such as "98.7% Accuracy."
If you want to catch fake IDs, these types of numbers are 100% meaningless.
To most people, the word "accuracy" means the catch rate of fake IDs. However, accuracy in the ID verification industry actually refers to the rate of successfully detecting an ID from an image, not the catch rate of fakes. So when our competitors say they have a "98.7% Accuracy" rate that is not the percentage of fakes they successfully identify.
Whenever Vyyer refers to "accuracy," we mean the actual catch-rate of fake IDs. No doublespeak.
How we deliver accuracy
Barcode data analysis
We split a barcode into a its sub-components and reverse engineer previously inaccessible information. We compare this information to computed values in order to self-authenticate the data.
To counter spoofed real barcode data, we also reverse engineer barcodes' physical properties, including their relative positions and dimensions. These are extremely difficult to beat without expensive machinery.
We compare data on the front with data on the back. This includes multiple barcodes, and soon both the positions of different text elements printed on the document using edge detection and the print quality.
What is Barcode Data Analysis?
Our main IPs in barcode verification can be summarized into three groups (swipe on mobile):
First Field Algorithm
Speed Comparison (Minutes)
Modernizing barcode technology not only unlocks enormous speed benefits, but allows near instant verification and the reliable use of the estimated $9.9 billion dollars worth of resources invested in REAL ID.
And Vyyer is so fast, we barely show up on the graph
SAAS delivery model
We verify our barcodes through our API, and all it takes is approximately 0.1 seconds for a result to be determined and the result sent back to the phone.
Frictionless = impact
Vyyer's ability to offer instant speeds in an industry where waiting 5-30 minutes for a less than reliable AI-produced result is the norm will have a major impact across many sectors of the economy.
Cost Comparison (USD)
Barcode are cost-effective
Again, modernizing barcodes has its benefits. They're extremely low cost, and we can pass those savings onto our customers.
For our mobile products, we're able to charge a flat monthly rate for unlimited scans. On the web we can go as low as $0.25 per scan. That's a major development in an industry where prices are as high as $2 per scan.
New use cases
Lowering market prices enable developing entirely new markets. Coupled with instant speeds, we can now reduce fraud, at cost-effective prices, and without added friction or lost customers due to abandonment.
100% Anonymous ID Verification
Solving a paradox
ID verification may seem inextricably tied to exposing your personal information to a third party. And for a long time, that indeed has been true. Until now. Vyyer's breakthrough innovation relies on no Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to produce results.
PII scrubbed at the source
At the point of scan, Vyyer scrubs all PII before it's sent to us for processing. We don't need PII, it has no value to us, and we don't want it. PII removal happens locally, on the mobile device that scanned the ID or in the user's web browser.

Track & Trace. Anonymously.
Before PII is scrubbed we send our clients metadata extracted from consumers the ID, like demographics information.
We also create unique identifiers that facilitate track & trace
features. All the anonymized customer data and all of your business workflow data is sent straight to a database they control.
Vyyer just does the anonymous verification. It's a win-win for analytics and consumer privacy.
