What is Biometric Authentication?

Every individual is unique and through the use of biometrics, we can use aspects of uniqueness to authenticate a person’s identity. Everything from the face, fingerprint, palm, and voice can be used to verify a person is who they say they are. Given most ID documents are photo IDs, the face is the most common and popular way to authenticate with biometrics.

How can biometric authentication help my company?

Biometric authentication provides the opportunity for passwordless logins for your users. Logging in with the face is both faster and more secure. Strong authentication refers to the set of specifications laid out by FIDO. These specifications mean authentication is intrinsically stringent enough to ensure the security of the system it protects.

Is facial recognition safe?

Biometric face authentication uses unique facial patterns to identify people, making it highly efficient. Since our platform doesn’t store data, all biometric information is encrypted and secure.

What all biometric authentication methods can be used?

uqudo lets your customers use the following biometrics for authentication:

  • Face
  • Fingerprint
  • Voice
  • Iris
  • Palm

How does 2FA work?

Our two-factor authentication (2FA) uses facial biometrics as the second factor to provide a non-invasive second layer of authentication, to keep your customer data secure.
