Description

The BioID app is a multifactor user authenticator – see how well face recognition works today! Developers and companies can easily add biometric authentication to their mobile platforms with a few lines of code. Their end users can log in or authorize transactions securely and conveniently. Forget passwords. Be recognized.

EASY MULTIFACTOR AUTHENTICATION WITH MOBILE FACE RECOGNITION


WHY BIOMETRICS?

Password hacks make headlines almost every week: a password alone is not secure enough. And typing a long, complicated password on a mobile device is difficult and annoying. Multifactor authentication systems using factors like software/hardware tokens or biometric security are becoming more common.

Biometric authentication such as facial recognition verifies the physical presence of the user, for easy, strong multifactor authentication using only the user’s mobile device with no extra hardware needed.


WHAT DOES THE APP DO FOR ME?

The BioID app provides multifactor user authentication (biometrics + mobile device). It is a mobile client for BioID Connect, an identity service based on our BioID Web Service (BWS) – the original 'biometric as a service' with our patented 'fake defender' liveness detection – and supporting OpenID Connect and OAuth 2.0.

• End users can use it as a mobile authenticator to log in to any apps and websites that support the app (including our BWS developer portal).

• Developers and companies can easily add secure, convenient face recognition to their mobile platform (websites or native apps), without any knowledge of biometrics.

• Anyone can try out our biometric technology and see how well state-of-the-art face recognition works.

The app currently supports liveness detection against photo attacks, and challenge-response to prevent video replay attacks.

Supports new Replay Defender against video fraud

The new Replay Defender prevents biometric fraud as it recognizes if a display is presented instead of a live person. In addition to BioID's liveness detection against photo spoofing this version thus includes a mechanism against video and avatar replay attacks. Try it out!
