Vouched, an AI-Powered Digital Identity Platform, to Provide ID Verification Services to Support Refugees

Vouched, an AI-driven identity verification platform, announced it will provide identity verification services in support of the launch of FreedomID, a platform designed “to support refugees in their safe passage and settlement anywhere in the world, formed by UK tech company Zenoo.”

Vouched expects to assist in “the verification of hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian refugees by the end of this year.”

John Baird, Co-Founder and CEO, Vouched, said:

“Our work with FreedomID perfectly aligns with Vouched’s mission to expertly identify anyone, anywhere to unlock access to life’s most critical services. We are proud to lend our leading identity verification technology to support FreedomID’s efforts. These efforts have the potential to deliver massive human impact on a global scale, while very specifically helping new immigrant individuals and families acclimate and establish themselves in their new communities.”

Vouched has made its identity verification service “available to refugees via the FreedomID platform, integrating seamlessly to provide fast and accurate verification to unlock access to critical services, including banking, travel, retail, healthcare and wellness.”

Vouched also serves “to identify and prevent potential fraudulent or criminal activity.”

Stuart Watkins, Zenoo CEO, said:

“Freedom ID was initially developed to help protect Ukrainian refugees, and now has the goal of becoming the global standard in safeguarding vulnerable people displaced as a result of any crisis. The support of the Vouched team and access to their industry leading identity verification solution allows us to significantly help more people and ensure they can avoid exploitative enterprises, while traveling and transitioning to new locations.”

The FreedomID platform can easily “integrate other technologies and data sources, and provides a powerful easy-to-use solution for governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other organizations in their fight against human trafficking.”

The platform is free “for use by social networks, accommodation hosts, and volunteers helping to protect Ukrainians from these threats.”

Traditionally many of the websites that accommodation agencies set up in response to the war in Ukraine are grassroots initiatives, making it challenging “for these unregulated entities and their websites to identify exploitative hosts without ID verification.”

FreedomID solves that issue, “providing a safe passage for displaced people and their families by providing ID verification services for refugee hosts, drivers, volunteers and refugees.”
