Using PingID mobile app biometrics authentication on your Android so you can access your Apple Mac machine.
- Your Apple Mac is running Mac OS 10.13 or later.
- You have registered your biometrics on your Android device.
- You have paired your Android device.
Biometrics authentication is simple using a mobile device. Authentication varies slightly depending on your phone model, phone settings, and whether your device is locked or unlocked when the authentication request is sent.
- Biometrics authentication is only available if the option is enabled by your organization.
- The authentication process may vary slightly depending on the Android version and the notification settings on your device. (The images shown here relate to a Samsung device. Actual implementation may vary according to device model.)
- Some Android devices do not support face or iris authentication with PingID. If you are not able to authenticate with face or iris authentication, we recommend using fingerprint authentication.
