Smile ID products are tools for developers to perform real time Digital KYC, identity verification, user onboarding, and user authentication across Africa.

What is Smile ID?


We provide you with both Sandbox and Production environments. You can use our Sandbox environment to confirm your integration works as desired in various scenarios. The Sandbox and Production environments work exactly the same with the exception that you can only use Test IDs in the Sandbox environment.

Not a developer?

You can still try our products either in-portal with SmartCheck or download and sideload our Android demo App from the developer section of the portal.


From the Dashboard you can run a job in your browser without writing a single line of code.
Just click on Run a SmartCheck to get started.\
You should see the page below:
  1. 1.
    Select the Product you would like to use.
  2. 2.
    Select an action from that Service you would like to perform.
  3. 3.
    Enter any additional data required (e.g., ID info, selfie image), and submit.
You should be taken to a Results page that shows you the outcome of the Job including all of the Actions performed.
You can also use the SmartCheck™ tool to test our system before you start integrating Smile into your products.
