To protect its users' money, the Lydia application offers an additional biometric security measure that can be activated before each money transfer.

If the smartphone doesn’t support biometric authentication, users can set a four-digit security code.

Why use biometric authentication?

Biometric authentication identifies users based on physical characteristics (face, iris, fingerprint, etc.).

Compared to a four-digit PIN, biometric security is simply:

  • More secure (it is harder to forge or copy)
  • Faster (just look at the phone or place the finger on the sensor to authorize the transaction)

With biometric authentication, no one can use an account even if the security code is known.

How to enable biometric security on Lydia?

With the latest phones, you can set up and use the following technologies to unlock the screen:

  • Facial recognition ("Face ID" with an Apple phone)
  • Fingerprint recognition ("Touch ID" with Apple).

To enable one of these technologies, users must first set it up in their phone's security settings (often in the "Phone Lock" menu).

Users can then enable it on Lydia in the "Security" menu.
