Hi! I’m Guille, Android Engineer at Monzo.
I want to update you on the status of the support of Face Unlock capabilities from Pixel 4 and other devices. We have been testing this internally and, although it’s not 100% done, we are making it available early through Monzo Labs. This feature has been requested a lot in the community so we thought we could share it for those of you super eager to try it out!
If you head over to Monzo Labs and tap Use new biometrics, then restart the app, you will be using it right away!
You will be able to authorise payments or see your card number by just… well, looking at your phone! If you are using a phone with fingerprint reader, that will also work but have an updated interface
Let us know what you think and report anything that does not feel right!
EDIT: This will only work if your device supports biometric authentication! Some devices allow you to unlock your phone with your camera, but this is not biometric-based, and thus not secure enough.
