Selfie Capture & Liveliness Check

What is Selfie Capture, how can it be enabled?
When it comes to remotely signing crucial documents, it's essential to be completely confident that the individual using the electronic signature is indeed who they say they are. The absence of traditional face-to-face interactions in business transactions has introduced a challenge in ensuring certainty.
This is precisely why the functionality of selfie capture & liveliness check is enabled. By incorporating selfie capture into the process, the platform aims to establish a more secure and reliable method of confirming the identity of individuals engaged in remote document signing. With the absence of in-person interactions, the selfie capture feature becomes a valuable tool to enhance assurance and mitigate the challenges posed by the lack of face-to-face verification in today's digital transactions.

This particular functionality for capturing the video is only availabe for the Adhoc users and is not available for the Internal users. An image taken from this 5 second video will be embedded in the completion certificate.
