How it works?
The user initiates a transaction via the platform.
Once a payment request is made, the server sends an authentication request.
User authenticates with the biometric identity provided during sign-up.
The server checks if the biometric is a match and then acknowledges the transaction.
More on transaction authorisation?
Widespread payment fraud has made it necessary for financial services to implement a strict mode of authentication. Along with numerous biometric authentication methods for a user to access their payment accounts, financial institutions now require customers to authenticate themselves while initiating transactions. This helps firms establish the identity of those initiating payments and reduce the risk of fraudulent transactions.

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:
How does 2FA work?
