Recently a new verification method has been put into circulation, to be able to verify your identity on the internet. This verification method goes through your bank, where the bank provides data to the merchant. This method is a replacement for the well-known 1 cent iDeal transaction to verify someone.
In advance, the customer sees exactly which data will be shared with the merchant and will have to give explicit permission. The explicit consent must fit into the ideas of bunq that data will not be sold or granted without the customer's consent.
Personally, I am of the opinion that verifying an identity is not really the job of a bank or any other financial institution.
But I work as a developer for an undisclosed digital document signing service. Now the person / company that starts the signature transaction has the possibility to use different verification methods to ensure that the document is signed by the right person. One of these methods is iDIN.
Currently, bunq iDIN has not implemented and a customer who has a bunq account should still use the iDEAL verification method. However, customers have not yet been confronted with this. But also for me personally it is somewhat awkward because I can not test myself in combination with bunq .
Now I am wondering if there are plans to support bunq at bunq .
