Passive Liveness Detection

What is passive liveness detection and what are the benefits?

Passive liveness check

Passive liveness detection is a way of detecting fraud that does not need the user to take any special activities. Normally, only one photo is taken and artificial intelligence is used to analyse it. The most typical ways are to record complete sessions on camera or to shine lights on the subject for examination.
The user’s convenience and simplicity of use may occasionally damage the user experience, since the user may be ignorant of the image capturing. The passive liveness detection method may operate in the background with no sign that it is taking place. Before carrying out the operation, services that place a high emphasis on data privacy and GDPR must get express user consent or implement an opt-in step.

What is the difference between active and passive liveness authentication?

As no special user activity is necessary, passive liveness detection can be quicker and more convenient to use. To avoid misunderstandings, worries, or increased mistake rates, which give the impression that the service is less concerned with user privacy and permission, it is, nonetheless, vital to provide explicit terms of use and/or instructions. Additionally, passive liveness detection may preclude the use of step-up security methods like challenge-response.
