There are 2 methods of facial recognition offered by BASIS ID. The method that we suggest is biometric facial recognition with video, where customer is asked to record a video with their face. BASIS ID engine extracts up to 21 frames from the video and matches each of them to the passport picture. To ensure that the person on the video is real, BASIS ID also detects any facial expressions.
Alternative method is matching a selfie with the passport picture. This is a simplified model of biometric check.
