LISNR Partners with CLEAR to Provide Secure, Friction-Free Digital Age Verification

New York, New York (January 16, 2023)

LISNR, the global leader in proximity verification, today announced a partnership with CLEAR (NYSE: YOU), the secure identity company, to create a safer and more frictionless checkout experience for age-gated purchases across the retail landscape. LISNR will leverage CLEAR’s advanced age verification product to streamline and elevate consumer experiences by allowing retail partners to easily verify a customer’s age instead of manually checking an ID. The collaboration between CLEAR and LISNR is LISNR’s first major partnership within the digital identity space in the United States.

As the global identity verification market is expected to grow by over 16% by 2026, pairing CLEAR’s age verification product with LISNR’s data-over-sound technology allows retailers to increase operational efficiency and safety, and eliminate fraud while ensuring a seamless customer experience. This solution is also expected to alleviate the need for merchants to make large investments in advanced systems and staffing.

“The age and identity verification space is an exciting market opportunity for LISNR to be apart, and CLEAR is a great partner for us to launch with. As we continue to grow our merchant adoption in the United States and abroad, the need for frictionless and secure transactions is prevalent now more than ever, proving that sound is an excellent standard for proximity authentication. As we solve similar pain points in the retail, transit, and event spaces, LISNR’s ability to provide a secure, data transmission between merchant and consumer will help enhance the entire customer journey, from check-in to checkout, while providing friction-free experiences alongside CLEAR.” –Eric Allen, CEO, LISNR

“We’re excited to work with LISNR to bring the same age verification product CLEAR’s members already know and depend on to more people,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. “Consumers love that our age verification technology means they don’t have to go digging through their wallets to find their driver’s license to prove their age, and businesses nationwide trust our platform to enhance their operations. I’m confident LISNR’s retail partners – and their customers – will appreciate the convenience, predictability, and security of CLEAR.”
