Finger print option

I want to add Finger print option in my ODK Form .From the phone's fingerprint sensor.

Please guide me.

Advance Thanks.


If you search for fingerprint, you’ll see that this comes up a lot. This would require a custom external app that interacts with the fingerprint scanner and provides the identity information back to ODK Collect. See

This thread has more details:


Also as a heads up: I don't think you'll be able to use the fingerprint sensor on an Android phone to get hold of fingerprint data. They are really only for security and so the Phone/OS handles all the fingerprint storage/matching and apps don't have access to any of it.

To read fingerprints you'll need a third party external scanner.
