Hello Everyone,

PixLab is delighted to announce the *immediate availability of FACEIO
<https://faceio.net>,* our web-based, facial authentication framework
developed from scratch here at PixLab <https://pixlab.io> in the past
few years.


The TLDR;

FACEIO <https://faceio.net> is a cross-browser, facial authentication
framework that can be implemented on any website via simple JavaScript
snippet *to easily authenticate users via Face Recognition instead of
the traditional login/password pair or OTP code*.

You can start implementing FACEIO on your website or web-based
application immediately by following our getting started guide here
<https://faceio.net/getting-started>.


The Developer Intro

FACEIO <https://faceio.net> is a cross-browser, Cloud
<https://faceio.net/pricing> & On-Premise
<https://faceio.net/on-premise> deployable, facial authentication
framework, with a client-side JavaScript library (fio.js) that
integrates seamlessly <https://faceio.net/integration-guide> with any
website or web application desiring to offer secure facial recognition
experience to their users.

Put it simply, FACEIO is the easiest way to add passwordless
authentication to web based applications. Simply implement fio.js on
your website <https://faceio.net/integration-guide>, and you will be
able to *instantly authenticate your existing users, and enroll new ones
via Face Recognition using their computer Webcam or smartphone frontal
camera on their favorite browser*.

Once fio.js implemented <https://faceio.net/integration-guide> on your
website, you'll be able to instantly recognize your existing users,
on-board new members securely with maximum convenience, and at real-time
thanks to passwordless experience powered by face recognition.

FACEIO <https://faceio.net> works with regular Webcams or smartphones
frontal camera on all modern browsers, does not require biometric
sensors to be available on the client side, and works seemingly
<https://faceio.net/integration-guide> with all websites and web-based
applications regardless of the underlying front-end JavaScript framework
or server-side language or technology.


Features

* Authenticates and confirms identity of users instantly without FIDO
keys, OTP codes, or security questions.
* Full cross-browser compatibility (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge &
Chromium derivatives).
* *Zero external dependency. Only standard technology implemented in
plain JavaScript & CSS*.
* *Designed with accessibility  from the ground-up with Vision
Impaired Mode*.
* *Defence grade accuracy with less than 100 milliseconds recognition
speed powered by state-of-the-art facial recognition engines
<https://faceio.net/facialid#facial-recognition-engine>*.
* Highest security standards. Privacy by design
<https://faceio.net/apps-best-practice> with maximum user
convenience. No requirements for biometric sensor.


Adding FACEIO to your website

Implementing FACEIO on your website or webapp is straightforward. Before
so, *you need to create a new application first on the FACEIO Console
<https://console.faceio.net>, and link this resource to your website or
web application.* The checklist below highlights the steps to follow for
a smooth integration of fio.js on your site:

1. Create a new FACEIO application first: Follow the *Application
Wizard* on the FACEIO Console <https://console.faceio.net> to create
your first application and link it to your website or web application.
2. The Application Wizard <https://console.faceio.net> should automate
the creation process for you. Usually, this involve inputting an
application name, *selecting a facial recognition engine*, cloud
storage region, reviewing security options, customizing the Widget
layout, and so forth...
3. Once your first FACEIO application created, simply implement
<https://faceio.net/integration-guide> /fio.js/, our facial
recognition JavaScript library on your website, and initialize the
library <https://faceio.net/integration-guide#fiojs-instantiate>
with your application Public ID.
4. Congratulations 👏. *You have FACEIO up & running!* Now, it's time
to /enroll()/ and /authenticate()/ your first user via face
recognition. *Refer to the HTML Integration Boilerplate
<https://faceio.net/integration-guide#boilerplate> on how to do so...*
