Biometric technology allows companies to uniquely identify a person based on one or more characteristics deemed unique to a particular individual, such as their face or physical fingerprint.
However, in a pandemic world, both your hands and face end up covered by gloves and masks, so relying on those traditional second-factor authentications (2FA) methods could increase friction and hurt the end-user experience.
UnifyID helps identify and authenticate individuals based on how they move and walk, leveraging machine learning algorithms and sensors in smartphone devices.
Common use cases:
- Contactless payments
- Physical access to a building
- User authentication
- Fraud reduction on payments platforms
UnifyID Founder and CEO John Whaley shares how biometric technology is shaping the future of authentication.
