Anyline launches unrivaled ID Scanning with NFC Chip Reader

Blog by Alexander Loidolt, Anyline Enterprise Business Partner

Today, we are launching the most secure and reliable mobile ID scanning solution on the market. Anyline will now read NFC Chips as a complementary security measure to our industry-leading ID scanning technology.

Anyline NFC Scanning is available now on all Android phones – and for iPhone users, we already have the technology in place to offer NFC Chip scanning as soon as iOS 13 is launched in the coming months.

What is an NFC Chip?

NFC Chips are found in biometric passports and IDs. They contain additional encrypted information about the owner, and are especially useful in situations where security is the number 1 priority, and extra level of protection is required. This includes border control and ID verification by police.

With Anyline, scanning an NFC Chip with a mobile device is fast and easy. Users simply hold their phone over the passport or chipped ID card, and the data will be immediately retrieved. This can then be checked immediately against the information gathered by scanning either the visual inspection zone of the ID or its MRZ (machine readable zone).

How does Anyline ID scanning stand above the crowd?

Anyline ID scanning is already synonymous with lightning-fast scanning and ironclad security. It’s what puts our technology into the pockets of every police officer in Austria, and many more around the world. 

Until now, we have achieved this by providing the best MRZ scanning on the market for IDs and passports. 

But while other solutions provide ID scanning and NFC Chip reading individually, Anyline now combines both technologies. The resulting 2-step verification process gives Anyline users an unrivaled ID verification package, which will be significantly more difficult to overcome than one option alone.
