Integration is available for mobile, desktop, and web apps, and delivered in a compact size of less than 5 MBs. 

For engineers and developers tasked with integrating BlinkID into their platforms, the process to get started couldn’t be simpler. You could even say it’s as easy as 1-2-3. 

In this blog post, we’ll go over the steps for getting started at our developer hub

Choose your documentation 

BlinkID is a versatile software tool for various types of integration. As a result, we have documentation available for all platforms, whether you seek a mobile SDK, web-based API, or more deep-level integration. 

For mobile users, we have SDKs equipped for Android (version 4.1 or higher) and iOS (9.0 or higher), as well as cross-platform options compatible with Capacitor, Cordova, Flutter, React Native, and Xamarin. For web users, documentation is available for cloud API, in-browser SDK (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge), and self-hosted API (Linux, MacOS, Windows).

Request a free trial

After activating your account and choosing the appropriate documentation, you’ll be ready for your 30-day free trial! From there, you can start building your custom solution accessing all available product features, via a license key to start testing our mobile SDKs or API keys to test our web-based versions.

Product features

Once you have your trial up and running, there are a host of product features that make Microblink the premier ID scanning and data extraction product on the market. 

Intuitive UX: Through our autodetection and autoclassification features, users can submit their ID with no need for preselection of document type or country of origin. Real-time feedback guides users through a successful scan, everytime.  

Privacy and security: Works on-device and in-browser ― meaning data and images are not sent to third-party servers for processing. 

Smart image capture: Snaps a clear, high-res image of both the document and user’s face ― regardless of camera angle or lighting. 

Field anonymization: As an added security feature, we can mask certain parts of an identity document to comply with applicable privacy laws. 

Age verification: Displays a warning message if the user scanning the document is below the age limit set by the service provider.
