BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- IDmission announced today that it will be partnering with Baaz - the first culturally relevant and tailored social media platform for Arabs - to provide biometric verification for secure user onboarding.

Baaz aims to build a social media platform designed specifically for Arabs, to meet their needs and bring them closer to each other in a culturally relevant environment that is vivid, simple, and safe. Using advanced data analysis technology and natural language processing technology, Baaz aims to be the first social media platform to offer an instant verification process.

A global leader in biometric technology, IDmission helps verify and authenticate identity through standards compliant security, passive liveness biometrics, AI, and industry expertise - creating a frictionless end-to-end encrypted identity verification process.

"Establishing user identity while enrolling into a social media site has far-reaching consequences, both for more meaningful social discourse and for enabling monetary transactions in the future," says IDmission CEO Ashim Banerjee. "Baaz is a trailblazer in implementing KYC into a convenient, frictionless enrollment process."
