Hey bunqers! 🌈
As a bank we’re required to verify your identity before opening your fully-fledged bank account at bunq. Since we’d love to have you onboard, we partnered up with IDnow for a smooth and worry-free identity verification for our users in Spain 🙌
How does IDnow work?
IDnow agents will verify your identity via video chat, from 08:00 CET to 24:00 CET everyday. Here’s the quick process:
- Start the verification process
- Enter your personal information
- Enter the verification code we’ve sent you through SMS
- Select the reasoning of opening an account with us
- A checklist for your verification will appear - check it out and keep everything listed in hand for fast verification
- When checked, await for the app connection check
- Wait for an IDnow agent to show up
- Follow their instructions
- Finish the verification 🎉
How to successfully finish IDnow verification?
- Make sure to read the list of approved documents so that you know what is accepted for your verification.
- Be patient. Don’t close the app or your phone while connecting to a live agent. This should take less than 3 minutes.
- Allow the agent to hear and see you clearly. Connect to a stable WiFi or hotspot around you and stay in a well-lit environment.
- Complete the verification on your own. No one is allowed to hold your phone or be present in the background.
