Identity verification via any mobile device

With Certn Lime’s OneID technology, candidates no longer have to queue up at the post office or police station to verify their identity. We’ve made it easier for your candidates to instantly verify their identity via a mobile phone selfie and a government-issued ID card. 

Background checks at your candidate’s fingertips 

Certn Lime has made the screening process easy. A secure link is emailed directly to your candidate, enabling them to complete the entire process on the device of their choice. 

Required information: Depending on the checks you’ve selected, your candidates will need to fill in basic contact information such as full name, date of birth, address and other relevant information. Our checks contain clear prompts that help candidates through the entire process.

Our dedicated support team is also available via live chat and email to ensure you and your candidate get the best experience and successfully complete the checks. 

Make decisions quickly based on fast and accurate results
