Guide for Getting Verified with Wind.App

Verification is a crucial step to help us combat fraud and money laundering, keeping your money safe, secure and instantly accessible.

Opening a self-custodial wallet with Wind.App is a streamlined and secure process. When someone deals with On/Off Ramp, it requires collaboration with a financial institution, thus KYC is needed. At wind.App we prioritize the safety and security of your funds and ensure compliance with financial regulations.

Why is KYC Necessary?

At Wind.App, we prioritize your security and compliance with financial regulations. To ensure the safety of your transactions and the integrity of our platform, we require all users to complete the Know Your Customer (KYC) process. This is especially important for our services, which include on-ramp (Fiat to Stablecoin) and off-ramp (Stablecoin to Fiat) transactions.

  • Preventing Fraud: Verifies your identity to prevent fraudulent activities.
  • Ensuring Compliance: Meets international and local regulations.
  • Protecting Your Funds: Safeguards your funds from misuse.
  • Transaction Security: Ensures secure transactions based on amount and origin.

How Does Verification Work?

We typically verify your identity using a photo ID (Government ID / Passport), proof of address. For special cases, we may require more documents.

Accepted Documents

To ensure a smooth verification process, make sure the information on the document you share matches the information on your Wind.App account. The photo should be clear and not blurry or covered. If there’s information on the back of your document, we’ll need to see that too. Please note that we may not accept documents that are not in English.
