The Jumio Software Development Kit (SDK) provides you with a set of tools and UIs (default or custom) to develop an iOS application perfectly fitted to your specific needs.

Onboard new users and easily verify their digital identities, by making sure the IDs provided by them are valid and authentic. Extract data from ID documents completely automatically and within seconds. Confirm users really are who they say they are by having them take a quick selfie and match it to their respective documents. Jumio uses cutting-edge biometric technology such as 3D face mapping to make sure there is an actual, real-life person in front of the screen.

SDK Overview

Using the Jumio SDK will allow you to create the best possible solution for your individual needs, providing you with a range of different services to choose from.

Get Started

Please note that basic setup is required before continuing with the integration of any of the following services.

Jumio SDK Integration

Jumio KYX platform and related services are a secure and easy solution that allows you to establish the genuine identity of your users in your mobile application, by verifying their passports, government-issued IDs and actual liveness in real-time. Very user-friendly and highly customizable, it makes onboarding new customers quick and simple.

This section provides a quick overview on how to get started with the iOS sample application that can be found here on Github. You will require a commercial Jumio License to successfully run any of our examples; for details, contact [email protected]. You will also need a current Xcode version to open and try out the sample project.

Start by downloading the iOS sample application from the Jumio Github repo. You can do this either by cloning the repo (using SHH oder HTTPS) to your local device or simply downloading everything as a ZIP. Once you’ve got the sample application downloaded and unzipped if necessary, open Xcode. You’ll be faced with a couple of options. Choose Open another project in the bottom right corner and navigate to where you’ve saved your sample application. Select the SampleApp.xcodeproj and open it.

You also have the option of simply starting Xcode and choosing the option Clone an existing project in the left-hand menu. In this case, you’ll need to add the URL of the entire repository on Github. If prompted, choose master and start cloning to your local device.

When the cloning is done, once again just choose the SampleApp.xcodeproj and open it.

Note: Our sample project on GitHub contains the sample implementation without our frameworks. The project contains a pre-action run script jumio-sdk-checkout.sh, which downloads our frameworks automatically during build time.

The iOS sample application contains two packages CustomUI and DefaultUI, as well as Delegates and the classes ViewController.swift and ResultViewController.swift. Use the ViewController class to either start CustomUI or DefaultUI by using a valid SDK token and data center.

If you haven't done so already, please refer to the Authentication and Encryption section for more details on how to obtain your SDK token. Add your individual SDK token instead of the placeholder "". The default setting for the data center is JumioDataCenter.US.

⚠️  Note: We strongly recommend not storing any credentials inside your app! We suggest loading them during runtime from your server-side implementation.

In the DefaultUI package, you will find the class DefaultUI.swift. In the CustomUI package you will find:

  • ViewController containing several ViewController classes
  • Handling containing ControllerHandling.swift, CredentialHandling.swift and ScanPartHandling.swift
  • CustomUINavigationController.swift

In each class, the most important methods for this service is shown and quickly outlined.

Once you start up the sample application, you'll be given the option of trying out the Jumio SDK. Select a service from the action bar at the bottom to try out different services. Your application will also need camera permission, which will be prompted for automatically once you try to start any of services.

⚠️  Note: We only support the Jumio SDK on physical devices. The app will compile on simulator, but you won't be able to run the SDK.


General Requirements

The minimum requirements for the SDK are:

  • iOS 11.0 and higher
  • Internet connection
  • Jumio KYX or Jumio API v3

ℹ️  Note: Please be aware that as of version 4.0.0, due to SDK obfuscation the simulator is required to use the latest iOS version.

The following architectures are supported in the SDK:

  • device: arm64
  • simulator: arm64 x86_64

Authentication and Encryption

ℹ️  As of version 4.0.0 and onward, the SDK can only be used in combination with Jumio KYX or Jumio API v3. API v2 as well as using API token and secret to authenticate against the SDK will no longer be compatible.

Before starting a session in our SDK, an SDK token has to be obtained. Refer to out API Guide for further details. To authenticate against the API calls, an OAuth2 access token needs to be retrieved from the Customer Portal.

Within the response of the Account Creation or Account Update API, an SDK token is returned, which needs to be applied to initiate the mobile SDK.

Basic Authentication (Deprecated)

Previously, Basic Auth credentials were constructed using your API token as the User ID and your API secret as the password. You still can manage API token and secret in the Customer Portal under:

  • Settings > API credentials > API Users

Authentication with OAuth2

Your OAuth2 credentials are constructed using your API token as the Client ID and your API secret as the Client secret. You can view and manage your API token and secret in the Customer Portal under:

  • Settings > API credentials > OAuth2 Clients

Client ID and Client secret are used to generate an OAuth2 access token. OAuth2 has to be activated for your account. Contact your Jumio Account Manager for activation.

Access Token URL (OAuth2)

  • US: https://auth.amer-1.jumio.ai/oauth2/token
  • EU: https://auth.emea-1.jumio.ai/oauth2/token
  • SG: https://auth.apac-1.jumio.ai/oauth2/token

The TLS Protocol is required to securely transmit your data, and we strongly recommend using the latest version. For information on cipher suites supported by Jumio during the TLS handshake see supported cipher suites.

ℹ️   Calls with missing, incorrect or suspicious headers or parameter values will result in HTTP status code 400 Bad Request Error or 403 Forbidden

Request Access Token (OAuth2)

curl --request POST --location 'https://auth.amer-1.jumio.ai/oauth2/token' \
    --header 'Accept: application/json' \
    --header 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \
    --data-raw 'grant_type=client_credentials' \
    --basic --user CLIENT_ID:CLIENT_SECRET

Response Access Token (OAuth2)

  "access_token": "YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN",
  "expires_in": 3600,
  "token_type": "Bearer"

Access Token Timeout (OAuth2)

Your OAuth2 access token is valid for 60 minutes. After the token lifetime is expired, it is necessary to generate a new access token.

Workflow Transaction Token Timeout

The token lifetime is set to 30 minutes per default. It can be configured via the Jumio Customer Portal and can be overwritten using the API call (tokenLifetime). Within this token lifetime the token can be used to initialize the SDK.

As soon as the workflow (transaction) starts, a 15 minutes session timeout is triggered. For each action performed (capture image, upload image) the session timeout will reset, and the 15 minutes will start again.

After creating/updating a new account you will receive a sdk.token (JWT) for initializing the SDK. Use this SDK token with your iOS code:

sdk = Jumio.SDK()
sdk.token = "YOUR_SDK_TOKEN"
sdk.dataCenter = jumioDataCenter


The app’s Info.plist must contain the NSCameraUsageDescription key with a string value explaining to the user how the app uses this data. Example: “This will allow to take photos of your credentials."


The SDK Setup Tool is a web tool that helps determine available product combinations and corresponding dependencies for the Jumio SDK, as well as an export feature to easily import the applied changes straight into your codebase.

Jumio Setup

Additionally, check out the Xcode sample project to learn the most common use. Make sure to use the device only-frameworks for app submissions to the AppStore. Read more detailed information on this here: Manual integration

App Thinning and Size Matters

App thinning (app slicing, bitcode and on-demand resources) is supported within the SDK. For app slicing, the image resources are placed within a xcassets collection. For ID Verification, some resource files (e.g. images) are loaded on demand.

In case you experience a build error when building your app in Debug configuration and aim to run it on a device, we advise to temporarily disable the build setting "Enable Bitcode" in your Xcode project.

Language Localization

Our SDK supports localization for different languages. All label texts and button titles can be changed and localized using the Localizable-Jumio.strings file. Just adapt the values to your required language, add it to your app or framework project and mark it as Localizable. This way, when upgrading our SDK to a newer version your localization file won't be overwritten. Make sure, that the content of this localization file is up to date after an SDK update.

ℹ️  Note: If using CocoaPods, the original file is located under /Pods/Jumio/Localizations.

Jumio SDK products support following languages for your convenience:

Afrikaans, Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Portugal), Portuguese (Brazil), Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese, Zulu

Please check out our sample project to see how to use the strings files in your app.

Our SDK supports accessibility features. Visually impaired users can enable VoiceOver or increase text size on their device. VoiceOver uses separate values in the localization file, which can be customized.

Document Verification

As of iOS SDK 4.3.0, Document Verification functionality is available. This functionality allows users to submit a number of different document types (e.g. a utility bill or bank statement) in digital form and verify the validity and authenticity of this document.

Documents can be submitted using one of two ways: Taking a photo of the document or uploading a PDF file. For more details, please refer to our integration guide.

Supported Documents:

  • BC (Birth certificate)
  • BS (Bank statement)
  • CAAP (Cash advance application)
  • CB (Council bill)
  • CC (Credit card)
  • CCS (Credit card statement)
  • CRC (Corporate resolution certificate)
  • CUSTOM (Custom document type)
  • HCC (Health care card)
  • IC (Insurance card)
  • LAG (Lease agreement)

  • TAC (Trade association card)
  • TR (Tax return)
  • UB (Utility bill)
  • VC (Voided check)
  • VT (Vehicle title)
  • WWCC (Working with children check)

ℹ️  Note: To enable the use of this feature, please contact Jumio support.

Digital Identity

As of Jumio iOS SDK 4.5.0, users may use their Digital Identity to verify their identity. For now 'ID by Mastercard' is the only Digital Identity provider currently supported by our SDK.

If you want to enable Digital Identity verification for your account please contact us. In case you are already set up to use Digital Identity verificaiton within your app, check out the integration steps explained here.

Analytics With Datadog

Analytic feedback and diagnostics enable us to continually improve our SDK and its performance, as well as investigate potential issues. With the Jumio SDK, we use Datadog as an optional tool to collect diagnostic information. Data collected includes specific SDK information like version numbers, started and finished SDK instances and scan workflows, thrown exceptions and error information, as well as other mobile events. Please note that gathering analytics data requires user consent due to legal regulations such as GDPR. The consent is granted when our MLA is accepted.

To benefit from Datadog, include the JumioDatadog in your project (for more details, see Dependencies:


All SDK related traffic is sent over HTTPS using TLS and public key pinning, and additionally, the information itself within the transmission is also encrypted utilizing Application Layer Encryption (ALE). ALE is Jumio custom-designed security protocol which utilizes RSA-OAEP and AES-256 to ensure that the data cannot be read or manipulated even if the traffic was captured.

Release Notes

Please refer to our Change Log for more information about our current SDK version and further details.
