You cannot rely on a scanner to check IDs. Fake IDs fool machines and scanning apps. No scanner can replace visual perception or manual dexterity, and your eyes and hands are precisely what you need to properly check IDs. Some scanners claim to "authenticate" IDs, but often they aren't doing much other than "reading" a barcode or a magnetic stripe, both of which are easily altered and easily fool scanners. Also, many scanners capture data from IDs, creating privacy and security concerns.
So what's the right answer? People. Only people can properly check ID. People need to know how to check ID and how to comply with laws that require them to do so. That's where we come in. The Real Identities app gives you clear, easily understood, 24/7 access to information that explains how to catch fake IDs and how to prevent the serious consequences caused by fake IDs. Get the app.
