The Malaysia MyKad ID refers to the unique identification number associated with the Malaysian national identity card, known as the MyKad. MyKad is the official identity card issued by the Malaysian government to its citizens and contains various information about the cardholder, such as their name, photograph, address, and date of birth.
The MyKad ID is a crucial component of the MyKad system. Each MyKad identity card has a unique 12-digit identification number, which serves as a reference for identifying individuals and accessing their personal information from the government database. This ID is used for various official purposes, including identification, voting, accessing government services, and more.
Surepass’s Malaysia MyKad Verification API operates through a structured process designed to verify the authenticity of MyKad identity cards. Here’s a simplified explanation of how the verification API works:
- Image Upload: Users initiate the verification process by uploading a photograph of the MyKad identity card. This image should include the MyKad details, including the MyKad Verification ID, which is the unique 12-digit identification number.
- Image Analysis: The API employs advanced image processing and computer vision techniques to analyze the uploaded photograph. It detects and extracts key information from the image, such as the MyKad ID number.
- Data Extraction: The API’s algorithms focus on accurately extracting the MyKad ID from the uploaded image. This process involves optical character recognition (OCR) to convert the printed or handwritten text on the MyKad into machine-readable data.
- Comparison and Validation: Once the MyKad ID number is extracted, the API initiates a comparison between the provided ID and the stored data within the government’s official database. This step ensures that the uploaded image corresponds to a valid and existing MyKad identity card.
- Result Generation: Based on the comparison and validation process, the API generates a result. This result typically includes information about the MyKad ID number.
- Response: The API sends back the result to the user. If the verification is successful, the user can trust the accuracy of the MyKad ID. In case of any discrepancies or issues, the user will be informed accordingly.
