Jumio Authentication

Protect against account takeovers, strengthen security measures and deliver dramatically higher levels of identity assurance with biometric authentication.

Automatically Unlock the True Identity of Your Users with Selfie Technology

Jumio's biometric technology automatically establishes the digital identities of your users through the simple act of taking a selfie. Advanced face recognition and selfie technology quickly and securely authenticates users and unlocks their digital identities in real time.

How Jumio Biometric Authentication Works


1. Acquire

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 identification template is created.


2. Enroll

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


3. Authenticate

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

Jumio Biometric Authentication Technology in Action

"With Jumio, we can confidently verify the identities of our banking customers and delivery drivers almost instantly and without the need of human review. We have also been able to make our platform much more secure by authenticating our drivers before each delivery."

Juan Pablo Ortega, Co-Founder, Rappi

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 security delivers a significantly higher level of identity assurance compared to other access management solutions including facial recognition systems, touch ID, fingerprint scanners, 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

Prevent identity theft by leveraging 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

Enrollment is easy. Users can take a selfie with a webcam and authenticate later from an iPhone or Android device (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 identification 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 access control.
