We enable trust in a digital world.

  • Trust is extremely important in our lives.
  • Trust makes relationships work.
  • Trust makes transactions efficient.

But on the internet, creating trust is difficult. You don’t see or feel the other person. Many important cues to their trustworthiness are invisible to you.

Our mission is to make it simple to trust each other. We create the foundation for good relationships that work without physical interaction.

Our mission

fidentity was founded by Edi and Thorsten over a beer while they were discussing options to provide a convenient KYC user journey for their customers.

Customer one

The ICO hype made convenient identification important for those projects, that wanted to stay inside legal boundaries. fidentity helped several of them to get regulatory sign offs to launch in Switzerland

First AI version

Technology had matured sufficiently to move from a manual to an automated solution that relied on artificial intelligence (AI).

finma audit

Technology and operations were mature enough to undergo an audit for compliance with the finma circular. Since 2019 fidentity can prove compliance with the relevant finma circular on online identification (2016/7).


With a mature product and regulatory approval, growth was the focus in 2020. On the product front, fidentity matured with a focus on providing the simplest and most flexible solution in the market.
