Help Center / How does the electronic fingerprinting process actually work?


In the traditional method of fingerprinting, ink is applied to each of your fingers which are then rolled across a fingerprint card to obtain your prints.

With electronic fingerprinting, there is no ink or card. Your fingerprints are rolled across a glass plate and scanned. It is faster and cleaner than the traditional method.

Electronic fingerprinting reduces the likelihood of illegible fingerprints and will reduce the overall application processing time.
