The Android Mobile Device

 Not all android phones can perform biometric scans to register or identify someone. This is mostly because of lack of permission provided by the Android operating system and lack of compatibility between different biometric sensors used by different manufacturers and your matching engine’s quality requirement. Besides, regular fingerprint sensor found in today’s smartphones are only good for unlocking your phone. However, to perform sophisticated biometric registration and to identify someone’s identity from your database, you will need a particular android phone with a high-quality biometric scanner that can save biometric data according to the requirement of your matching engine.
