Thanks to Apple FaceID and Samsung facial recognition, consumers are increasingly comfortable with using biometric authentication, specifically their faces, to unlock their phones. And this familiarity is helping businesses make the switch to passwordless authentication.
Given the growing sophistication of spoofing attacks, it is essential to distinguish between a genuine live face and an attempt to spoof the system with an artificial representation of a face. Automated detection of presentation attacks, and specifically liveness detection, has become a necessary component of any authentication system that is based on face biometric technology.
If your user accounts are only protected by a username and password, you're vulnerable to account takeover. With biometric authentication, the user can only log into their account or perform a high risk transaction (e.g., a wire transfer or password reset) by using a biometric template (a digital representation of their face).
30% to 50% of all help desk calls are for password resets (Gartner, 2019). Go passwordless and let users recover their own accounts — quickly, easily and securely — with face-based authentication.
