Taiwanese biometrics technology company Egis is displaying its fingerprint and facial recognition systems at Mobile World Congress.

Company officials said the under-display fingerprint technology at MWC eliminates the need for fingerprint sensor buttons to enable an "all-screen display" on mobile devices, while the facial recognition solution is based on depth sensing technologies and offers "compelling cost advantages."

MWC organizers, meanwhile, are encouraging those attending the conference to access the venue as part of a facial recognition technology pilot program, although it warns that attendees are still "required to have their printed badge on them at all times when accessing MWC."

Data collected during the trial would be destroyed after the conference, organizers pledged. The pilot is sponsored by the GSMA, PwC and Canadian tech company Mexia.
