Live Scan Fingerprinting Software: Background Check

What is live scan?

Put simply, live scan is the process of capturing fingerprints electronically with a live scan equipment (i.e. a fingerprint reader and supporting software) and create a digital image of the user fingerprints. Unlike traditional ink-and-roll capture of user fingerprints, the process of live scan enables us to do it more quickly and precisely.

What is live scan background check?

A background check, as the name suggests, it the process of reviewing the past actions and transactions of an individual in order to make sure it does not include anything conflicting with the laws and regulations of the country. When background checks are done with a live scan, it is called live scan background check.

Some law enforcement and regulatory agencies accept fingerprint cards for background check requests. Making fingerprint impressions on these cards with ink stained fingers looks like an easy process and cheap alternative to live scan. But getting these prints without missing details can be extremely hard.

Live scan vs. background check

Live scan is a crucial part of the background check process. Live scan only covers the portion in which your fingerprints / palm prints are captured electronically using a live scan fingerprinting equipment. Live scan fingerprinting, however, is not the only way to initiate the process of your fingerprint / palm print submission for background checks. Instead of using live scan, you can make ink based fingerprint impressions on the fingerprint card and send them to the concerned agency. This process does not have live scan involved.
