Hi there

TouchID is an Apple only technology introduce with the iPhone 5S. This plugin won’t work on android and doesn’t claim to.


Thanks for your reply …

Hey @rgillingham , I’m trying the touchid in ios but it shows an error .I’m using a code in my controller is

$cordovaTouchID.checkSupport().then(function() {
// success, TouchID supported
title: ‘success, TouchID supported’,
//template:‘From date’
}, function (error) {
//alert(error); // TouchID not supported
title: ‘TouchID not supported !’,
//template:‘From date’

Please help to solve the problem.


This won’t work from my point of view. The plugin referenced above is only for iOS. I got it to work properly on iOS, but on Android it will (even if correctly integrated) throw a “Class not found” exception…as the plugin is iOS only.

Maybe you can join this thread here, to get more peoples attention at the “Android fingerprint ionic” topic.
