Jumio Authentication

Protect against account takeovers with biometric-based authentication and deliver dramatically higher levels of identity assurance.

Automatically Unlock the True Identity of Your Users with Selfie Technology

Biometric-based Jumio Authentication automatically establishes the digital identities of your users through the simple act of taking a selfie. Advanced selfie technology quickly and securely authenticates users and unlocks their digital identities.


The user experience is as simple as taking a selfie and protects against a wide range of fraud.


Automated protection against spoofing and deepfake attempts with certified liveness detection.


Faster and stronger than passwords, KBA and SMS-based 2FA.

How It Works



When a new online account is created, Jumio captures an image of a valid government-issued ID (driver’s license, passport or ID card) and a selfie, from which a biometric template is created.



At enrollment, the selfie is automatically compared to the photo on the ID to reliably establish the digital identity of the new user.



When future user authentication is needed, Jumio Authentication captures a fresh selfie, generates a new biometric template and compares it to the original template to unlock the user’s digital identity in seconds.

Jumio Authentication in Action

Product Highlights


Automated Anti-Spoofing Protection

Scare off fraudsters and protect against spoofing attempts with advanced liveness detection that has achieved Level-2 certification for ISO 30107-3 iBeta Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) testing.

Stronger than Passwords, KBA and SMS-Based 2FA

Face-based biometric templates deliver a significantly higher level of identity assurance compared to passwords, SMS-based two-factor authentication and knowledge-based authentication.

Automated Authentication

Automate and speed up the authentication process and deliver a definitive match/no match determination in seconds.

Identity Proofing

Leverage a government-issued ID and a selfie as trust anchors to know if the user is really who they claim to be.

Cross-Platform Portability

Users can enroll using a webcam and authenticate later from a smartphone (and vice versa).

Streamlined User Experience

Create an intuitive, user-friendly experience on all channels while providing an extra layer of security.

Adaptive Learning

The system learns from each and every user authentication. This means the new biometric template is compared not only to the original template but all subsequent templates to improve authentication accuracy and reliability.

Biometric Template Storage

Store encrypted user biometric templates on your own servers for a greater level of control.

Use Cases

Passwordless authentication
Secondary (step-up) authentication
High-risk transactions
Password resets
E-learning and hotel self check-ins
Prevent account takeovers
