Explore yourself how convenient and accurate it is to be recognized with your face! Also test our live detection against spoofing.

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.



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.


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.

As an administrator, improve the security of your authentication simply by supporting BioID Connect through industry standard OpenID Connect / OAuth 2.0 protocols.

As a developer, enhance app or website security with just a few lines of code by supporting BioID Connect. We take care of all the biometrics and the associated user interface; you get instant biometric security.

As a user, get simple and user-friendly stronger security for the growing number of apps and websites that support BioID Connect.

I liked it, sometimes it didn’t work. I thought that it is a good product and would be great if you had a private club, or something like that. I think it works fine, and I would recommend this app to anyone.

Don’t download

Was not compatible with any apps. Can’t use as a primary option in unlocking phone or any other app for that matter. Wallflower app.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your review. This app is a demo app and not thought to be compatible with other apps. Apple actually doesn't allow any external app to unlock their phones. Please have a look at our Website for more information!
