OnFido’s technology enables companies to carry out remote reliable background checks. For developers, its innovation lies in being able to quickly integrate these services with apps or websites, allowing developers to easily add background checking. Onfido now works with over 1,500 companies globally across industries such as banking and financial services, e-commerce and the sharing economy, with customers including Revolut, Square, Nutmeg, Deliveroo and Babylon. Headquartered in London, Onfido now has offices in San ​Francisco, New York, Lisbon, Delhi and Singapore.

In September 2017, Onfido raised a $30M Series C round and will use the funding in two ways: first to hire more senior leaders to help us with geographic expansion, both in the US, which is now our largest market, and moving into new international territories, including India and Latin America. Second is technology development.  Onfido says it will be hiring more talented engineers, machine learning specialists and data scientists to continue with research and development.
