Check Yourself Before You Recommend Yourself!™

If you are an independent contractor for child care, senior care, even pet care (on sites like Care.com) it may be a competitive advantage to show that you have received an FBI fingerprint-based background check and have no history of a criminal background.

Using a fingerprint collection kiosk is as simple as...

  1. Bring 2 valid forms of identification* including a valid government issued photo ID
  2. Scan the QR code sent to you by Accurate Biometrics at the kiosk
  3. Wait momentarily for identity verification
  4. A trained technician will assist you in capturing your fingerprints


You can go to any fingerprinting Kiosk location, even if you chose a different location when registering for fingerprinting. Fingerprinting Kiosks are located in participating The UPS Store® locations. Search for a location near you.

You must pre-register to get fingerprinting. The registration link is the first step in the Easy Onboarding Steps downdown menu below.

What is an eDO?

An eDO is a Departmental Order 556-73 process that allows the applicant to collect their results electronically (online). The Departmental Order 566-73 allows an individual to request their criminal history record (“rap sheet”) — or prove that a criminal record history does not exist. A departmental order may also facilitate the expungement process.

The Criminal History Report (CHRI), is one component of an FBI Identity History Summary (IdHS) check. The report contains information submitted to the FBI related to arrests, and in some cases, may also contain other information such as federal employment, naturalization or military service.

*What are valid forms of identification for an FBI background check?

A current government-issued ID such as a state driver’s license or ID card, or a U.S. Passport are commonly used as a primary ID. Examples of acceptable secondary IDs are a government issued birth or marriage certificate, a Social Security card, a current school ID with photograph, a Certificate of Citizenship (N-560) or a Certificate of Naturalization (N-550). For more examples, please visit our FAQ page here.
