Online identity verification and account security have become increasingly important in today’s digital age

As the number of online transactions and activities continues to grow, so do the risks of fraud and identity theft. With this in mind, we conducted a survey of 600 consumers to gain insights into their experiences of fraud, how companies have handled instances of fraud, and the importance they place on online identity verification.

Our survey revealed that a significant number of consumers have experienced fraud or identity theft in the past year. Ranging across account takeover, stolen payment details, identity theft and online fraud, we found that fraud spreads far and wide across all industries.

Which industries are the most impacted by fraud, and are they doing enough to maintain customer loyalty, when it is so easy to change provider in today’s digital society?

The survey revealed interesting insights into the different forms of online identity verification that consumers are willing to use

While traditional methods such as passwords and security questions remain popular, there is a growing demand for more sophisticated methods such as biometric verification and two-factor authentication.

As the use of online services continues to grow, it is imperative that companies take steps to protect their customers’ personal information and provide effective fraud prevention measures. Failure to do so can result in a loss of customer trust, damage to brand reputation, and financial losses.
