Why WEB-key?

For Developers

API for WEB-key and biometric solutions to include in your application/environment.

Platform Services


High quality, compact, affordable options.

BIO-key offers a variety of biometric hardware devices including Microsoft-qualified Windows Hello USB fingerprint scanners, all-in-one POS terminals, and FIDO Security Keys.

View Hardware Devices

Replace passwords with biometrics for all users.

Reduce user frustration, down time, and calls to the help desk, or try one of these hybrid approaches.

Require a simple palm scan using a mobile device, with a password, for remote and on-premises employees, contractors, business partners, and other designated external users.

Use a biometric, such as a fingerprint scan, as a stronger authentication method for access to specific modules or data, or completion of specific sensitive transactions.

Deploy biometrics in specific settings, such as self-service kiosks, retail checkout counters, or patient areas, where the device may be accessed by different individuals.


Nothing to Carry

Roving users can be freed from having to carry something to access shared workstations. Rather than issuing multiple hardware tokens per user or taking on labor law risk with personal phone use, BIO-key allows you to use identity-bound biometrics at shared workstations to let users be their own credential for secure access.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership

Rather than paying for, provisioning, and field replacing costly tokens to each and every user who might share a small group of workstations, deploy a fingerprint scanner to the workstations and use BIO-key's software-defined identity to make strong multi-factor authentication available to all users at a fraction of the hardware costs.

No Delegation

Account takeovers are a threat, but so are account handovers. If users unwittingly or willingly share their non-biometric Multi-Factor Authentication credential with a third party, then security and governance controls are rendered ineffective. BIO-key allows IT to ensure that only the authorized user accesses systems.

BIO-key provided us with an easy way to implement two-factor authentication while maintaining roaming profiles for our users. Setup was smooth and BIO-key worked with us to answer any questions or issues.

Works with BIO-key Authentication for Active Directory

“One method does not fit all … mobile MFA methods (those using a mobile device) are impractical for up to 15% of employees and 50% of customers.”

Gartner, 2020 Authentication Market Guide
