With technology from IDmee the Norwegian bank DNB is hoping to revolutionise how businesses identify people all over the world. The technology is path-breaking and complex, but accessible in a easy to use solution for the user.
In just a couple of few weeks on 11th June, the Norwegian bank DNB will release their identification app called DNB ID, using technology from IDmee.
“We are really looking forward to this first release, and hopefully we are going to revolutionise identification across the world”, says Ørjan Bagn, head of Channels for Large Corporates in DNB.
“The software development kit (SDK) provided by IDmee provides us with complex technology in an easily integrated package. Being IDmee`s first customer, we have worked closely together throughout the whole process, ensuring every aspect of the solution is working as planned, and so it does”, says Ørjan.
In connection with customer on-boarding, KYC/AML, investments, real-estate and other processes in need of proper identification, DNB complete over 80.000 passport based identifications each year. The new solution DNB ID will identify people by using a mobile phone, a passport and their own face. The app helps the user throughout the process, with step by step explanations.

“We have developed a path-breaking technology, allowing safe digital identification. IDmee makes it possible for anyone having a biometrical passport and a NFC Mobile phone to do a digital identification. The technology in IDmee uses NFC technology to read the information stored in your passport, and then we use facial recognition technology to combine the user and the passport”, explains Jannicke Birkevold, manager for IDmee.

IDmee is an entrepreneurial business providing identification technology to any business needing to easily and safely identify people. “DNB is Norway’s largest financial institution, and we are so excited to have them as our first customer”, says Jannicke.
As an end note Jannicke adds “It seems that we have hit a nerve in the market with this technology. There are over 100 countries issuing biometrical passports, and companies from all over the world have made contact with us. We are now in dialogue with several to see how our technology can solve their problems.”
