The verification process explained

At Wirex, we take security seriously. That's why we require all our users to verify their accounts. But what does account verification mean and why is it necessary? 

What is account verification? 

Account verification is a process that confirms your identity and ensures that you are who you say you are. It involves submitting your personal information and supporting documents to us, which we use to verify your identity. Our verification process includes verifying your identity, address, and source of funds. In some cases, we may request additional information over email. 

Why do you need to verify your account? 

There are several reasons why we require our users to verify their accounts. Here are a few: 

  • Compliance with regulations:  

Wirex is a regulated financial institution, and we must comply with the laws and regulations in the countries where we operate. Account verification is necessary for us to comply with these regulations, such as Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know-Your-Customer (KYC) regulations. 

  • Protecting your account:  

Verifying your account helps us protect your account from unauthorised access and fraud. By confirming your identity, we can ensure that only you have access to your account and your funds. 

  • Access to full features:  

Wirex services are only available to verified users. By verifying your account, you can access the full range of features and benefits that we offer.
