Trusted fake ID


Secure and private, Patronscan's leading fake ID detection keeps marijuana out of the hands of minors.

Patronscan has been the best fake ID scanner available in North America for years. OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology is used to read the face of the ID, just like a human does, in order to improve fake ID detection.

data management

Patrons trust you to keep personal information private. Trust us to keep it that way.

Secure access, automatic deletion and top-tier storage facilities are just some of the ways we protect data while helping keep your dispensary compliant with local privacy laws.

Prevent ID sharing
