Cloud biometrics developer BioID today announced the release of the Android version of its face recognition authenticator and the availability of source code for both the Android and iOS versions of the app. While mobile app developers could always integrate BioID's facial recognition via the BioID Web Service API, regardless of platform, the mobile app source code allows developers to more quickly integrate biometric authentication directly into their apps on the two platforms that power the vast majority of mobile devices. Furthermore, with the apps anyone interested in biometric authentication can experience just how secure and convenient face recognition can be.

Developers can easily integrate biometrics into iOS and Android apps

Since authentication requires both possession of the registered mobile device and the user's physical presence verified through face recognition, mobile developers can offer their end users multifactor authentication without a password. Protection against fraud is provided through BioID's patented liveness detection, which ensures that biometric samples come from a live person and not from a photo or video.

"From the beginning, BioID has focused on making integration of our biometric web service as easy as possible for developers," said BioID CEO Ho Chang. "Our mobile source code provides mobile developers a great tool for quick and easy implementation of biometric recognition, so they can offer their end users a more secure and convenient alternative to traditional authentication."

The BioID facial authenticator is available for free in the Google Play Store as well as in the iTunes App Store. For more information, please see Source code is available on GitHub for Android and iOS.
