ZenGo Wallet adopts FaceTec's facial biometrics

Monday 20 May 2019 | 11:13 AM CET

ZenGo has introduced a password-free security architecture based on multiple security layers, including biometric 3D face authentication.

The cryptographic asset wallet startup implemented this solution to avoid the risk of recovery phrases or passwords that can be lost or forgotten. Also, ZenGo’s facial biometrics are provided by FaceTec’s ZoOm 3D Face Authentication. 

Moreover, ZenGo Wallet uses on-device biometrics, however, it also offers server-based account recovery for cases in which the user’s device is lost or stolen. The company emphasises the difference between FaceTec’s technology, which is tailored for use by a consenting user, and the ‘Facial Recognition’. The latter is typically used for surveillance and law enforcement. ZenGo also notes FaceTec’s liveness detection capabilities, and presentation attack detection certification.
