The newly released RealMe Now app is a joint venture between The Department of Internal Affairs and Kiwibank to verify customers bank applications. Backed by the NZ Government, RealMe Now is a secure platform, that in the future, will be expanded to serve other digital identity needs!
RealMe Now is a quick and easy way to prove your identity via your mobile phone. By simply downloading the app, taking a selfie and completing the biometric challenges, you can complete the application for your bank account!
The app’s biometric technology verifies your identity against your passport, allowing authentication via this digital platform – all from your mobile phone!
The app verification process only takes a couple of minutes and eliminates the time you need to spend traveling to a physical branch and waiting in line. So, there is no need to visit the PostShop, or even leave your house!
