Fingercheck offers several security features to prevent buddy punching from occurring. Fingercheck takes extra precautions when it comes to mobile punching security.


In this article, you will learn:


How to set security features

  1. Log in to Fingercheck as an Administrator.

  2. Click the EMPLOYEES tab, and click on the employee's number to open the employee's profile.

  3. In the profile, click Self Service under Personal.

  4. Click the Edit icon (pencil) in the top-right corner.

  5. In the Mobile Punch section under Clock in Options, select the options you want to enable for your employees:

    • Allow Mobile Punch

    • Do Not Require GPS On Mobile

    • Take Photo On Mobile Punch

  6. To restrict employee mobile punching to each individual employee's own cell phone (so that they cannot give their coworkers their login information to punch on their behalf), enter the employee's mobile device ID number into the Mobile Device ID field.

    See the procedure below to learn how to find the ID number.

Once the feature is enabled, the employee will not be able to punch in or out from any other mobile device ID.


How Your Employee Can Retrieve Their Mobile Device ID

  1. Log into the Fingercheck mobile app.

  2. Tap the hamburger icon to open the menu.

  3. Tap About.

  4. On the About page, tap Show Device ID.

  5. Tap Send, and send the ID to your supervisor.
