# About the MobileID App

Signicat's MobileID App offers a simple way to implement and use two-factor authentication on mobile devices. If combined with SignicatID (SCID), electronic signing of documents is also supported. On-device biometrics and device binding are used as the primary factors when authenticating users. This improves security, UX and customer engagement.

The solution offers fingerprint, facial recognition or PIN code for authentication and provides Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) satisfying PSD2 requirements. The MobileID App is available on Google Play (opens new window)as well as the Apple App Store (opens new window).

# Supported use cases

  • Registration or device activation. This is the prerequisite for all other MobileID operations.
  • Authentication of previously registered users in the merchant's existing mobile app.
  • Authentication-based signing of documents on mobile devices. This functionality uses Signicat's electronic signature solution.

Like the MobileID InApp solution, the MobileID App relies on Encap Security, an established and trusted provider of mobile security solutions, for app security. The MobileID App is not the same as the MobileID InAapp solution, however. The MobileID App is a standalone app, whereas the MobileID InApp solution is integrated with existing business applications.
