Manchester-based digital identity verification providers Hello Soda is celebrating operating in 177 countries, or 91 per cent of the globe.

The firm’s KYC (Know Your Customer) and AML (Anti-Money Laundering) solutions are being used across a wide range of sectors.

In Bermuda, a country that the firm said companies and organisations haven’t been able to authenticate in, it has now been enabled through the firm’s Profile iD solution.

Developing countries across the globe, such as Lesotho, Malawi, Rwanda, Somalia, Sierra Leone and are also being enabled through the Profile iD technology, it said.

Thin files or limited credit data previously meant that many customers were being wrongly turned away, but now Profile iD can verify and authenticate these customers in seconds.

“We’re extremely proud of our global reach, and the thousands of checks we carry out every day to keep customers and companies going,” said James Blake, CEO of Hello Soda.

“We work with businesses all over the world, and are currently growing our client base in Latin America and the Far East, and are making ID verification more accessible in Africa. That’s thanks to our suite of solutions and Universal API that makes it possible to verify anyone, anywhere in the world. It’s fantastic to see us improving digital security in so many countries throughout the world.”

The firms clients include Blockchain, eToro, Klarna, Paysafe, and Sun Finance.ID tech firm celebrates 177 country coverage
