The KWS Parent Verification (PV) service is a free service that enables you to verify the identity of the person designated as the parent of a child using your app.
Here’s a summary of how it works:
- Within your product's interface, you collect the parent's email address and pass it to KWS via a single authenticated API call.
- This call triggers the verification flow, which is entirely managed by KWS.
- Within this flow, the parent verifies their identity using one of a selection of verification methods such as scanning an ID or providing payment card details.
- KWS notifies you of the successful verification using a webhook.
