How Abra Works

Using Abra Just Got Easier — Introducing Face ID

At Abra, we value creating a simple, easy-to-use platform. And, today accessing your crypto has never been simpler. In fact, Abra is proud to announce that we have added support for Face ID and Touch ID. 

Now, you can log in to Abra without having to use your PIN. Let’s walk through the new feature and the steps required to set up Face ID for your Abra app.

How to Set Up Face ID

Biometric identification (Face ID and Touch ID) is a standard for mobile device security. For older iOS and Android devices, Face ID might not be supported. Most older devices will support Touch ID.

If you already have Face ID enabled on your device you can skip to the “Enabling Face ID on Abra” section. The required steps to set up Face ID depend on whether you have an iOS or Android device.

iOS Users

iOS users can enable Face ID by following these steps:

  • Go to the Settings section 
  • Enable Face ID & Passcode
  • Tap Set Up Face ID

Once you successfully set up Face ID on your iOS device, close the Abra app (if open) and relaunch it. If you are unable to set up Face ID, read Apple’s helpful tips.

Android Users

Android users can enable (Face ID) Android Face Recognition by following these steps:

  • Go to Settings
  • Go to Security (or Security & Location in some versions of Android)
  • Enable Smart lock
  • Enable Trusted Face
  • Enable Setup


Follow the steps to set up. Once you successfully set up Face ID on your Android device, close the Abra app (if open) and relaunch it. If you’re unable to set up Android Face Recognition, read the Android guide.
