Testing biometric authentication, camera, and device passcode

App Live enables you to test biometric and camera features simultaneously on our devices.

Overview

Testing biometric authentication, camera, and device passcode together in the same session on App Live is supported on BrowserStack.

Based on your use case, you can either enable these options in any combination. For example, if you app supports device passcode, biometric authentication, and Face recognition as a method of authentication, you can enable all three options and test your scenarios.

Enable settings before app upload

  1. Log in to the App Live dashboard.
  2. On the Select Source page, click the Settings icon next to your app.
  3. Select all the applicable options. Screenshot showing multiple app configurations screen
  4. Select the required device-OS where you want to test the app.
  5. On the session status pane, view the relevant log status that indicates if the settings are enabled. Screenshot showing relevant log lines when simultaneous features are enabled

Initially, the logs display the Enabling .... status. After the settings are enabled, the Enabled... message appears.

Note: Ensure that you don’t cancel the session if enabling the settings takes more than 60 seconds as long as the enabling log messages don’t appear after the following message:
This is taking longer that expected, please do not cancel the session...

Unsupported Device-OS Combinations

Whenever you enable any option, only the device-OS combinations that are supported are available for you to start a session. All the unsupported devices appear grayed out. Screenshot showing disabled devices for incompatible device OS combinations

For example:

  • When the Biometric toggle is enabled, all iOS devices less than version 13 and Android devices less than version 6 appear grayed out.
  • When the Image Injection toggle is enabled, all iOS devices less than version 13 and Android devices less than version 6 appear grayed out.
