Database Verification overview

About Database Verification

Validate self-reported personal information

A Database Verification checks that information an end user provides about themselves—such as name, date of birth, address, social security number or other national ID—matches a record in a known database. Their information must match a record in order to pass the verification.

Query a range of databases

Persona can query a variety of authoritative databases; in the United States, Canada, and internationally. See our coverage map for details.

Use alongside other Verification types

Database Verification is one of the many Verification types that Persona offers. You can use a Database Verification in conjunction with other Verification types within a single Inquiry. Doing this lets you combine the benefits of each type.
