Biometric Authentication

Safe, secure, and seamless authentication 

Authenticate users promptly and securely across all stages of the user journey, ensuring seamless and stress-free experiences while preventing unauthorized access.


Ensure hassle-free authentication for your users

Veriff’s Biometric Authentication solution uses AI and facial biometric analysis to swiftly and securely authenticate users, granting instant access to products and services. This fast and fully automated process can be integrated into any stage of the user journey such as account access, high-risk activities, or account recovery.

How Biometric Authentication Works

Veriff’s biometric authentication confirms that a returning user is who they claim to be.  Users can authenticate on any device and platform of their choice, as Veriff supports iOS, Android, mobile web, and web SDK or API.

Once the user’s selfie has been enrolled, either from an identity verification session or by taking a biometric enrolment selfie, the user can simply use their face to authenticate themselves.

User selfie

The user simply takes a quick selfie, replacing cumbersome, outdated, and less secure authentication methods such as passwords, shared secrets, or one-time passcodes.

Conducts real-time analysis of the user's selfie, including image quality and fraud checks, liveness detection, and face matching so that you can approve genuine users with confidence.

Provides a clear and actionable decision in just 1 second, empowering you to make an informed final decision - whether to allow, deny, or request additional verification.

Passive liveness detection

Veriff validates that the user is real and present during the authentication session without requiring the end user to complete any additional or unnatural actions. Our liveness models are capable of detecting spoof attempts such as presentation attacks using masks or presented screens, or an AI-generated selfie.

Face matching

Artificial intelligence analyzes and compares the biometric template from the authentication session to the stored biometric template from the enrolment session to determine if it's the same user or not

Adaptive technology

AI models adapt to evolving fraud patterns, providing proactive protection against emerging threats. Using liveness detection, face blocklisting, device fingerprinting, and dynamic fraud checks creates a robust security approach without impacting user experience.

Optional background video

Optional background video recording, enables us to conduct advanced fraud prevention checks with minimal input from your users. 

Account takeover mitigation

Prevent fraudsters from unauthorized access to your users’ accounts by confirming it is the genuine account holder through a secure selfie authentication method.

Step-up authentication

Dynamically adjust the level of authentication required based on the associated risk. Seamlessly integrate biometric authentication as a step-up authentication method to authorize high-value transactions or high-risk actions.

Account recovery

Selfie-based biometric authentication provides stronger assurance that the user requesting the account recovery is the genuine account holder.

Network and device analytics

In addition to selfie checks, Veriff automatically analyzes over 1,000 data points such as network and device analytics to combat evolving fraud typologies.

Streamlined user experience  

Our fully automated solution provides a response in under a second, enabling your users to authenticate themselves instantly with a simple selfie and eliminating the burden of remembering and managing complex passwords. Users do not need to leave the journey to receive a one-time passcode or use third-party authenticator apps.

Assisted Image Capture

Veriff uses machine-learning technology to assess client sessions in real-time and guide users during the photo capture process. Clear and actionable user feedback due to poor lighting, glare, cropped ID, and obstructed facial images are just a few examples of how Assisted Image Capture pre-validates images and boosts first-time pass rates.


Users can complete authentication on any device and platform of their choice that has a user-facing camera. Veriff supports iOS, Android™, mobile web, and web SDK or API.

Flexible enrolment

Depending on the use case or user journey, users can be enrolled either via Veriff’s Identity Verification solution or simply taking an enrolment selfie. The enrolled selfie is stored as a biometric template for analyzing future authentication sessions.

Combine Veriff’s Biometric Authentication with Veriff’s Identity Verification solution to add a layer of security and assurance that the user is bound to a verified identity document. Use the selfie from the IDV enrolment for future authentication sessions.
