May 25, 2023

May 25, 2022 – Botdoc, the global leader in Secure Digital Transport (SDT) technologies, and IDology, a GBG company, a leading identity verification provider in the Americas for over 20 years have announced a partnership that will provide the auto industry with easy and secure capabilities to comply with new FTC Safeguards Rule and customer privacy.

Through this partnership, dealerships can leverage the market-leading identity verification technology from IDology with Botdoc’s in transit encryption sessions, to make the sale of automobiles easy for both dealership staff and the consumer. The simplicity of the solution reduces friction for dealerships making it easy to collect consumer Personally Identifiable Information (PII), such as remote scanning while ensuring data protection and FTC compliance.

“Now more than ever, consumers are purchasing automobiles online, which leads to increased opportunities for fraud,” said Karl Falk, founder and CEO of Botdoc. “The Botdoc/IDology solution offers an FTC-compliant way for auto dealership staff to send normal text messages and emails to collect and validate driver’s licenses remotely and securely.”

“With the new FTC Safeguards deadline for auto dealerships approaching on June 9th, this announcement comes at a time when dealerships need secure and easy-to-use solutions for collecting and verifying drivers licenses,” said Christina Luttrell, CEO of IDology. “We are excited to partner with Botdoc and enable compliance for dealerships that must comply with strict rules to protect consumer data and privacy, making it simple and safe for the dealerships and consumers.”

The solution is now available to the auto industry directly from Botdoc and through integrations with CDK Global (dealerships using the elead CRM). For more information, please visit
