Does LocalAuthentication support facial recognition?

  1. SDK Version: 38.0.8
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android 10

Hello, I am trying to implement facial recognition with LocalAuthentication for my app. My coworker has Samsung Galaxy A70 which he can unlock using facial recognition, but when it comes to my app it says he only has fingerprint supported. I added USE_BIOMETRIC to AndroidManifest but and am trying this on expo client.

Should I build an apk so that we can test this or should I add something else to the code, so that the application will recognise he also has facial recognition avaliable?

Hey @mihasemrl, I replied on your github issue.


Hi, yes I have seen your answer, and I apologise that I also wrote the question there, but usually I get answers there faster, oppose to this forum where sometimes I don’t even get any response.
Thanks for the explanation.
