South African ID Book Number Validation

Modified on Tue, 12 Jul 2016 at 11:45 AM

Processing applications and reports for networks can be a tedious and error-prone task, resulting in duplications or missing data. The Social Collective has built in a tool to make the process of validating user profiles with ID Book Numbers much easier and more reliable.

How does the ID validation work?

Whenever a user creates a profile on one of The Social Collective’s platforms, he/she will be required to provide a valid South African ID if he/she is South African. The system will automatically check the format of the ID number to prevent incomplete or incorrect numbers from being recorded.


What else does ID validation do?

  • Validates SA ID Book numbers to ensure they are recorded in the correct format
  • Automatically updates users’ Date of Birth and Gender to save time and reduce human errors
