First is the lighting. Shadows can play havoc with the face scan, so make sure your face is in even lighting, ideally from the front with as few shadows as possible. Bad lighting and shadows are the biggest cause of bad scans.

Try not to blink! It’s hard in harsh light, so if you have to blink stop moving your head. That way the app knows not to take any pictures in that moment.

Make sure you hold your phone at eye level, this helps get a more accurate scan.

You should hold your phone about 18-inches away. Your face doesn’t necessarily need to fill up the outline on the screen.

Remember to turn your head slowly to a maximum of 45 degrees. You should look forward when turning your head. Don’t keep your eyes on your phone otherwise it will come out like bizarro-you!
