You can use the built-in biometrics in your Android to authenticate with PingID for a secure sign on experience.
If your Android device supports FIDO2 biometrics, you can use it to access your account and/or apps via a web browser, using PingID authentication.
Note: PingID Mobile app using biometrics (fingerprint, face or, iris authentication) and Biometric web authentication for Android are different methods of authentication:
- PingID mobile app: Allows you to authenticate when accessing your account from various different devices. Requires you to install PingID mobile app on your mobile device, and to pair it with your account.
- Biometrics authentication: Allows you to authenticate using your Android device's built-in biometrics, when signing on to your account, without downloading an app. You can only sign on to your account from the same device with which you want to authenticate.
