Taking a selfie to open a bank account might sound a bit abnormal, but so is Arival. We’re a digital bank, which means we do things differently.
Account security is a top priority for us and we need to verify that it is really you creating this bank account. As we aren't able to see you physically in-person, a selfie taken in real time helps us to be able to verify your identity.
Smile for the camera! 🤓
