    Data Collection Timeout: Time period (in minutes) in which data can be collected after initiating verification from the UI. By default, the data collection timeout is set to 15 minutes. The maximum data collection timeout is 30 minutes.

    Data Collection Only: Data collection collects documents from a user but does not process them for verification.

    Government ID

    Verification based on government-issued documents. For example, a driver license or a passport.

    • ID Verification: Select Required, Optional, or Disabled.

      • Automatic: AI-based analytics examine the ID document to determine if it is original and unaltered.
      • Manual: A human agent trained in document authentication examines the photo of the ID to determine its authenticity.
      • Step-Up to Manual: Automated inspection is tried first. If the document cannot be verified, the service switches to manual inspection.

    • Retain Original Recordings: Click the toggle to enable storing the original voice sample after a successful transaction.
    • Update On Reenrollment: If disabled, the voice reference is replaced instead of enhanced with additional data.
    • Update On Verification: Click the toggle to enable improving the existing voice reference by adding a new template.
