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