Brightwell 2.0:  Secure your account with FaceCheck.

Protect your account with a 2-second video selfie.

 Update your Brightwell Navigator mobile app to make your account more secure.

Here are the basics about FaceCheck.

FaceCheck replaces your password

You might forget your password, but you cannot forget your face! 

Only need your username and video selfie

To log in to your Brightwell account, you will enter your username, then FaceCheck will verify your 2-second video selfie.

Works on a phone, tablet, or computer 

You can log in on any one of your devices to check your Brightwell account.

How does FaceCheck protect my account?

Video selfie login

FaceCheck uses your video selfie to confirm you are the real person connected to your Brightwell account. Not even a picture can fool this technology!

More protection

FaceCheck increases the security of your Brightwell account because fraudsters will not be able to guess or steal your password. 

Hi-tech security 

The computer technology behind FaceCheck verifies that your video self is the real, live person associated with your Brightwell account.

What is changing?

Advanced features means we are using advanced technology. With Brightwell 2.0, many of our older features are changing or going away.

Security images

We are removing security images from the web login and replacing it with FaceCheck. 

Biometrics

Face Unlock, FaceID, or fingerprint login will no longer work. FaceCheck will replace them.

Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer does not work with FaceCheck. If you use IE, please download a new browser onto your device.

Frequently asked questions

How do I setup FaceCheck for the first time?

Once we make FaceCheck available, you will need to update the Brightwell Navigator mobile app. Then, when you open the app and enter your username, it will guide you through the steps to set it up. 

What happens to my old password?

After your setup it up, your password will not be needed to log in anymore. When FaceCheck is turned on, you will be asked to setup FaceCheck the first time you try to log in on the app or on the website. 

Can I use my fingerprint or Face Unlock/Face ID?

Since you will no longer need to type in a password to get into your account, we will disable the use of your phone’s biometric tool for Brightwell’s password (fingerprint and Face Unlock or FaceID).

Will my facial hair or glasses work with FaceCheck?

Your video selfie will work with glasses and facial hair, but not with masks, sunglasses, or a rear-facing camera on a smart device.

What happens to my security image?

Since you will no longer need to enter a password to get into your account, we will remove the security image. After you enter your username, you will be asked to go through FaceCheck to log in to your account.

Can allow a friend or family member to log in to my account with FaceCheck?

For security purposes and for privacy reasons, only one face can be used for each Brightwell account – and that face must be the face of person who is associated with the account.

How do I setup FaceCheck if I do not have a camera?

If you do not have a working camera on your phone, tablet, or computer, please contact support and we can help you.

Is FaceCheck required?

We strongly recommend that you setup FaceCheck.  If your device does not have a working camera or if you have other technology issues, our support team will help you. 

How do I use FaceCheck on my computer?

If your computer has a camera, you can log in to your Brightwell account just as you would on your phone. 

Do I need to update my operating system on my phone or tablet?

FaceCheck will only work with phones or tablets using Android OS 5.0+ or iOS 8.3+. 

Where is my video selfie stored?

Brightwell is committed to the safety and security of all of our cardholders. When you log into Brightwell, we create a face map that is encrypted to ensure as much security as possible (please see our privacy policy for more details). The encrypted face map is matched against your video selfie when you log in. Under no circumstances do we share or sell your face map.

Why do I need to update my browser?
Outdated browsers have security holes which are fixed in updates. Internet Explorer is a browser that is not supported by FaceCheck and you will not have access to this new feature if you are using Internet Explorer. Please download another browser or update your existing browsers to make sure your account stays protected. Supported browsers include Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera, Samsung Internet or Safari.
