On-chain verification on Polygon ID involves verifying users' claims programmatically inside a smart contract, while off-chain verification involves verifying claims inside a server that is set up by the verifier application. Both types of verification provide the same level of user privacy and allow for the same degree of query customization, but the proof generated by the user is verified in different ways.
