What is biometric authentication?

Biometric authentication is a security process that uses an individual’s unique physical or behavioural characteristics to verify their identity. Unlike traditional authentication methods such as passwords or passcodes, which rely on something the user knows, biometric authentication relies on something the user is. There are multiple biometric authentication methods, of which CFPS uses the following:

  1. Fingerprint recognition: This involves scanning and comparing the unique patterns of ridges and valleys on a person’s fingertip.
  2. Face recognition: Facial recognition technology uses facial features such as the distance between the eyes, nose shape, and other facial landmarks to identify individuals.
