Since each person’s fingerprints are unique, they are among the most secure ways to verify identity. Neural networks have enabled facial biometrics to achieve approximately 20-fold higher accuracy in just the last four years. With the development of advanced anti-fraud methods such as liveness detection, the algorithm also prevents fraud using printed photos, 3D masks, and videos.
Both modalities are more secure than traditional authentication methods that can be easily lost or revealed, such as cards, PINs, keys, or passwords. Today, there are minimal security differences between fingerprint and face recognition technology.
2. Simple and convenient
Applying a finger to a sensor and then opening the door is a simple process that takes around a couple of seconds. Facial biometrics is even simpler. Opening a door or turnstile at a glance can be fully automatic and smooth, which takes about 1 second. With a seamlessly integrated system, no further activity is required.
Both modalities enable immediate personal verification. The decisive parameter in verification speed is the physical movement to a finger reader, which is longer than for a camera that captures the face remotely. And that’s why facial biometrics is faster.
There’s a difference on how data is recorded between fingerprints and facial biometrics. Recording fingerprints requires physical contact, while facial biometrics is contactless, which translates into the observance of strict hygiene and anti-pandemic measures.
At Innovatrics, we believe that facial biometrics is the future of identity verification given its simplicity and speed. According to Emergen Research analysis, the facial biometrics market is expected to increase to 16% annually over this decade, while Mordor Intelligence puts this figure at 21%. Fingera customers can readily enjoy the advantages of facial biometrics.
