The New User Management
On the new BioID Playground we changed the user management. For the old BioID Playground we used identity federation to allow for logins with your Facebook or Google account. We have implemented our own identity provider now. Thus you can no longer use your credentials of an other service to login into BioID Playground or the BioID website.
After the account creation and your initial enrollment you can login biometrically into our BioID Playground! This was one motivation for us to change the login mechanism. You can still use the combination of username and password if your browser won't support camera access.
For account creation you need to provide an email address. So how does that go with our statement that the service is anonymous?
But this information is only needed for the identity provider. The BioID Web Service itself still provides Privacy by design.
