Download and Install the VeriScan App

You can download the latest version of VeriScan for Windows from the Downloads page.

Before proceeding, make sure that your existing version of VeriScan is closed.

Once the installer is downloaded, run the executable and follow the steps in the installer.

The installer will require Administrator access to your computer.

Select which level of diagnostic data to share with IDScan.net

When the installation is complete, click the OK button to close the installer.


Setup Your Scanning Device

Once you have the new VeriScan app installed, launch the VeriScan app and click the Settings button in the lower left corner.

From the Settings menu, you can click on the Devices tab to add your scanners and other devices.

Click on the blue Add button to add a new device.

Choose Reader as your device type.

You should see your device listed in the available devices window.

Click on your device to connect it to the VeriScan app.

Your device will then be added to the list of active devices and begin initializing.

After a few seconds, your device will say "Ready."


Sign Into Your VeriScan Cloud Account

Once your device is set up, you'll need to sign into your VeriScan Cloud Account to start scanning.

If you don't already have one, create a VeriScan Cloud Account by following this guide.

First, click the Settings button in the lower left corner.

From the Settings menu, click on the License tab under the Help tab group.

Enter your Device Login information into the Login and Password fields.
Then, click the blue Connect button to verify your account credentials.

Be sure to use your Device Login information. You will not be able to connect your device to your VeriScan Cloud app using your Portal credentials.

You should receive a popup banner at the top of your screen with a verification result.

As long as you are connected to the cloud, the top bar will remain blue.

  • The small cloud icon indicates your subscription is active.
  • The ASDK symbol means your Authentication Engine is licensed and running.


Migrate Your Existing Records

Now that you have signed in to your VeriScan Cloud account, you can import your local history into VeriScan Cloud.

If you have a very large database, it can take several hours to upload to VeriScan Cloud. As such, we recommend that you start this process at the end of your working day to allow it complete. You will not be able to scan with VeriScan while your database uploads. 

To start, click on the Settings button.

From the Settings menu, click on the Data tab under the Local Settings tab group.

From this menu, you should be able to see your VeriScan Cloud Device Login details. At the bottom, you should see a section marked Data Migration. To begin migrating your data into the Cloud, click on the blue Import Previous Data button.

You should now see the Database Migration wizard. Click the Next button to get started.

This may take some time, please be patient while your records are imported over. The speed can vary based on several factors, including the size of your local database, your internet connection speed, and how powerful your PC is.

Once the migration is complete, you can close the Database Migration window.


Start Scanning

Now that your device is set up and you're logged into your VeriScan Cloud account, it's time to start scanning. Click on the Scan button in the top left corner to go to the main screen.

At the center of the main screen, you'll see a green circle that say "Ready to Scan."

You can reach out to our Support Team if you have any questions or need assistance.

After a successful scan, you should see all the relevant customer details in the scan results screen:
