High assurance authentication delivered via strong biometric verification, leveraging something your customers can’t lose – their face. The process is as easy as looking in the mirror, enabling customers to authenticate in seconds and prove they are the originator and rightful account owner.
Automate account recovery and remote access
Face Authenticate takes the burden away from operations teams by automating the authentication process. Whether it’s for account recovery, high-risk action approval, or to enable access in the real world, Face Authenticate offers secure self-service to customers.
Enhance your user experience
No more need for the friction associated with recovery keys. No waiting for one-time passwords. No waiting for a help desk response. Customers simply frame their face for a few seconds using their mobile device camera, and a 3D facemap is created. Within seconds, we match the 3D facemap to the facial biometric initially captured at onboarding, and confirm if the customer is legitimate.
Simple integration for developers
To start using Face Authenticate, first create a repository of verified and trusted faces of your customers via the Onfido Trusted Faces API endpoint. Next, integrate the iOS, Android, or Web SDK to support the Face Authenticate face scan process.
How it works
We verify a customer’s identity with document and biometric checks at onboarding. We assess if a photo ID is genuine, and that it’s being presented by its rightful owner. Face Authenticate extends the value of the onboarding experience by leveraging the image captured during onboarding for future authentication requirements, ensuring confidence for businesses and their customer.
When authentication is triggered, the customer is requested to complete a face scan via their mobile device camera. This generates a 3D facemap, which enables more accurate face matching and spoofing detection than a 2D image.
Using a fully automated process, the 3D facemap is compared against the customer’s stored facial biometric data, resulting in a response in a few seconds, without compromising security or the user experience.
