The backend biometric identification system that Careem has integrated into their systems is developed by Digital Barriers. The technology will allow Careem to confirm the identity of its Captains’ in real time and allow Careem to eliminate the risks that come with fraudulent car ownership and possession. The system’s robust verification process will validate the identity of the Captain with their assigned car and Careem will be able to authenticate the identities of the Captains round the clock.

“We will continuously be making efforts to simplify the lives of the people in the region and at the same time make sure that they remain same, with the integration of the Digital Barriers’ facial technology we have taken a step to ensure that even more and further bolsters the faith of users in the Careem brand”, Magnus Olsson, Co-founder and Chief Xperience Officer at Careem, said.
