Why do you need my selfie?

During the set up process we will ask for a live recording of your face so that we can compare it to the photos of your ID and confirm that it is you activating your Mobile Secure Key. This prevents a fraudster from gaining access to your accounts using a fake copy of your ID. This is a digital version of an ‘in-person’ identity check that happens at a high street branch of a bank.

Your ID photo and selfie recording will be held and protected by Triodos Bank and Fourthline, our digital identity verification partner. Please see our Terms & Conditions for more information and our Privacy Policy for how we hold and protect your data.
