The WebID group
Security and innovation for online identification and online contract conclusion
WebID Solutions GmbH, head of the WebID Group, is the inventor and pioneer of video identification in compliance with the Money Laundering Act (GwG), a driver of innovation and one of the largest companies in Europe for online identification services. In addition to video identification, this also includes digital identities (True Identity), automated age verification, legally valid online signature processes and many other solutions. Founded in 2012, the company has verified more than 150 million ID card data fields for authenticity and identified the corresponding users.
The headquarters of WebID are located in Berlin. The most important German locations are Hamburg, Kiel and Solingen. There are subsidiaries located in several countries. WebID is currently expanding into the USA and India. The staff totals almost 800 employees, of which almost 700 verify around 15,000 consumers daily in WebID’s nationwide unique high-security video identification center – on 365 days a year.
Thanks to the quality and high acceptance of WebID video identification, the model of secure storage and reuse of a “true identity” in the interests of the user has been implemented since the founding of WebID and has proven itself. At the request of the user, WebID serves as a depository for verified, real identities to enable a better and highly secure user experience during day-to-day identifications or legally compliant contract closings online.
