What is eKYC?

eKYC is electronic Know Your Customer. Since eKYC is integrated with AI and many advanced technologies, it can simplify the customer identification process.

Nowadays, eKYC has been accepted and used by governments in many countries around the world, including Vietnam. In the banking industry, the method of the customer identification process is gradually shifting from offline in transaction offices to online with eKYC.

Why is eKYC essential to banks?

The KYC process includes basic steps such as ID card, face verification, etc. to open a bank account, or verifying documents such as Passport, Household Registration, Utility bill, Labor Contract, etc. as evidence for credit loans. These procedures are necessary to assess and monitor risks, prevent fraud, avoid money laundering activities, terrorist financing, corruption, and illegal income, etc.

Therefore, banks must ensure that the owners open accounts themselves and the person who conducts transactions is the registered one. If customers fail to perform required KYC steps, banks will refuse to open their accounts.

However, a huge limitation of the traditional customer identification method is that customers have to go directly to transaction offices to carry out, collate identification documents. It is cumbersome and time-consuming to move and wait, and quite annoying. The birth of eKYC has solved all these shortcomings of the traditional identification method.
