Counterfeit bills abound thanks to their almost exact resemblance to real bills. But, it can’t be perfect, something will give it away like a counterfeit bill. In Colombia we have an application that came out together with the “new” banknotes of the country, which helps to identify counterfeit bills. It works as an explanatory guide for you to learn how to identify fake currencies. But, if you do not consider yourself an expert in it, these applications will help you to identify the banknotes.
This app is available for both Android and iOS devices. It is very simple to use, you simply have to enter and select the type of bills you want to scan, there are almost all the countries in the world. And voila, once you select it and you agree with the regulations, after reading it, you will only have to put the ticket in front of the cell phone camera. This application is a scanner type, that is, it scans the ticket, analyzes it and determines if it is false or not. The downside of this tool is that you must access a paid version in order to scan a bill of any denomination.

MCT Money Reader
This application is available exclusively for Android and works in a similar way as the previous one, the difference is that MCT Money has many more functions. The first thing you should do when you open the app is go to the upper left corner to the ‘Recognize’ button while you bring the bill closer to the camera. Here it will also be scanned to identify its validity. In addition to that, you can also access an identification guide that teaches you how to identify the bills.
This, unlike the previous one, is only compatible with iOS devices. Likewise, it differs by its operation; uses lights and glitter so you can verify the authenticity of the bills. The only “disadvantage” is that in order to use it you will have to pay, although it is a cheap service.
