Unlocking possibilities.

About

 

IDloop GmbH was founded in 2021 with the aim of revolutionizing biometric authentication technology. Located in Jena, Germany—home to global players in the optics and photonics industry for more than a century-our team of experts has set out to develop the world’s first contactless highly secure 3D fingerprint scanner.

As pioneers, we are leveraging cutting-edge algorithms and machine learning techniques to offer a highly secure yet hygienic alternative to contact-based procedures, while championing new standards in the ever-evolving biometrics market.

MISSION

We are committed to building the world’s first highly secure, contactless fingerprint scanner that enables full 3D capturing of fingerprints for 1:N verification. We ensure safer and more reliable biometric fingerprint authentication, even in the most demanding situations.
