We have added the following security feature to the rider app
to offer you an extra layer of protection
When a new device is used to log in to your account, the app will require you to take a selfie.
In order to successfully log in to your account from a new device, please follow the steps below:
1. Open rider app and fill in the credentials to your account
3. Take a selfie using your phone camera
2. You should see this system message requesting you to take a selfie to proceed. Press the button “Start the camera” to take a selfie.
4. You will see the selfie you took in this page and you can choose to upload the selfie by clicking “Confirm identity" and log in to the account or retake the photo.
Photos collected will be used for internal verification, and for more detail
Thanks to this feature we will be able to verify that the rider app is being used by the account owner.
Taking selfie without masks:
The selfie should show the entire face (including hair) of the account owner.
Taking selfie with masks:
With a mask AND your HKID card (visible) next to your face.
We understand there are situations where you could not remove your masks, you may also take selfies with masks, by holding up your HKID card/passport next to your face (with mask) together in one picture.
The selfie must be taken in real time:
Images from the phone gallery or photos of pictures WILL NOT be accepted.
Please validate the selfie before submitting it:
The selfie can be retaken if needed, but once submitted, it CANNOT be changed.
