FaceAuthenticator (Deprecated)

Plugin that calls native SDKs in Android and iOS.


In the file ROOT_PROJECT/android/app/build.gradle, add:

android {
    dataBinding.enabled = true
    compileOptions {
        sourceCompatibility = JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
        targetCompatibility = JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8

Import the package and call the add() method inside the initialization in android/app/src/main/java/io/ionic/starter/MainActivity.java:

import com.authenticator.FaceAuthenticatorPlugin;
public class MainActivity extends BridgeActivity {
  public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {


import { FaceAuthenticator } from "face-authenticator-plugin";


let faceAuthenticator = await new FaceAuthenticator();
faceAuthenticator.setMobileToken = "<mobile token>";
faceAuthenticator.setPeopleId = "<cpf>";
//Enable video capture
let captureMode = new CaptureMode({
  videoCapture: new VideoCapture({ use: true, time: 3 }),
faceAuthenticator.setCaptureMode = captureMode;
const response = await faceAuthenticator.start();
if (response.result == "SUCCESS") {
  // Success. Check response.isAuthenticated and response.signedResponse
} else if (response.result == "FAILURE") {
  // Fault. Check reponse.type and response.message
} else {
  // User closed the screen.

.setCaptureMode(CaptureMode captureMode)

Define the capture settings

Configura a captura por vΓ­deo

imageCapture: ImageCapture(use: boolean, beforePictureMillis: number, afterPictureMillis: number)

Configura a captura por foto

Example of use

let imageCapture = new ImageCapture({ use: true });
let captureMode = new CaptureMode({ imageCapture: imageCapture });
faceAuthenticator.setCaptureMode = captureMode;

Getting the result

The FaceAuthenticator return object will have the result attribute that contains a string SUCCESS, FAILURE or CLOSED. The return will default to PassiveFaceLivenessSuccess, PassiveFaceLivenessFailure, and PassiveFaceLivenessClosed, respectively, for each of the cases.



Boolean isAuthenticated

Full address of the image on the device

String signedResponse

Signed response from the CAF server which confirmed that the captured selfie has a real face (not a photo or video). Use this parameter if you want an extra layer of security by checking that the signature of the response is not broken, caused by an intercepted request. If it is broken, there is a strong indication of request interception

String trackingId

Identifier of this execution on our servers. If possible, save this field and send it along to our API. This way we will have more data on how the user behaved during the execution. Will be null if the user sets useAnalytics = false or the analytics calls do not work



String message

Friendly message explaining why the SDK failed

String type

Fault type that shut down the SDK

Os tipos de falha existentes sΓ£o:



When the token entered is invalid. Should not occur in a production environment.


some mandatory permission was not granted by the user. It will only happen in a production environment if your app does not ask your user or the user manually disables it before starting.


Server connection failure. Will occur in production if the user's device is without internet.


Failure in some request with our servers. It will occur in production only in case of our failure.


When the device is not safe to run the SDK. If this failure occurs, let us know.


When the device does not have enough space for capturing some of the photos. Can occur in production.


some internal failure made it impossible to run the SDK. It may occur due to project configuration errors, it should not occur in production.


Empty object indicating closure of the capture screen by the user.
