As a contactless biometric modality, voice biometrics and speech recognition both have a strong presence in the world of Mobile ID. Allowing for hands free strong authentication, the spoken biometrics are versatile, requiring only a microphone and the proper software.
Authenticating by voiceprint brings with it the benefits of being frictionless and hands free, making it ideal for Internet of Things applications and wearable tech. Highly specialized in certain niches, vocal authentication also bolsters other biometric modalities like facial recognition, often used as an additional factor in high security scenarios.
