Hi Gojekers,

One of the reasons why Gojek is dubbed as a super-app with the most active users in Indonesia is because of the ease of service offered. Whatever you need, from transportation and logistics services, food & FMCG, daily necessities, entertainment and news needs, to payments, you can access directly from one application. Not only that, but the transaction process is also very easy and hassle-free with the presence of GoPay. In our mission to make the process of your transactions using GoPay more secure, Gojek is launching the Touch ID or Fingerprint authentication on Android and iOS devices.

Touch ID/Fingerprint authentication will be available on Android devices, while Touch ID/Face ID can be found at iOS devices (All devices above iPhone X will have Face ID, whereas older devices will have touch ID). The Touch ID/Fingerprint authentication (iOs & Android) and Touch ID/Face ID (iOS) feature are alternative security features for official GoPay transactions besides PIN. This feature utilizes biometric identity or unique physiological characteristics of each user consisting of fingerprints for Android users as well as fingerprints or faces for iOs users so that your transactions are safer.
