London-based OneID, the UK-based provider of bank-verified digital identification services, has secured £1 million in new funding from ACF Investors, which has backed BlackCurve and Wayland Additive

The fresh funds will be used to further develop its product and bolster its mission to make the world a safer place by helping people prove who they are online easily and securely.

Paula Sussex, CEO at OneID, said: “The investment from ACF Investors is a coming together of similar interests and visions. As the world increasingly becomes digital-first, we aim to minimise fraud, enhance online experiences, and make the world a safer place. ACF is our second institutional investment, and it is a vote of confidence in our efforts to make digital identification accessible and available to more UK citizens.” 

Tim Mills, Managing Partner at ACF Investors added: “We’re constantly monitoring businesses that have the potential to enhance the lives of the British people and redefine the future of the UK. OneID, with its simple, trustworthy, and effective solution to a pressing problem, could touch some 50 million UK citizens and make bank-verified digital identification the norm in the UK.”

Unique digital identification services 

OneID was founded in 2020 by Steve Kirsch, to enable more UK citizens to have a safe and smooth digital experience by enabling banks to provide an ID service for customers. With digital interactions and transactions becoming a daily staple, OneID’s solution eliminates the need for physical identification documents, enabling businesses and individuals to digitally prove their identity instantly and anywhere. 

Its digital real-time identity service creates absolute certainty between a business and a customer in the fastest, cheapest, and safest way. It also uses the most advanced counter-fraud measures to help protect banks, businesses, and consumers from online identity fraud. 

The company enables individuals to verify their identity in the fastest, safest way using bank-verified data. It requires no registration process, does not store any personal data, and removes the need for scanning passports or taking selfies to authenticate your identity online.

To use OneID, users choose the service as their identity verification method when signing up for an online product or service and consent to OneID contacting and verifying their details with their bank (online or mobile banking). Once verified, OneID securely confirms their identity to the online product or service provider in just a few seconds.
