FbF® bioCollect App for Android:
To download the FbF® bioCollect App for Android, open the Google Play Store on your device. Search “bioCollect” and install the app. Or you can access the app here:
First, open your Android Settings and navigate to Bluetooth options. Next, enable Bluetooth and then pair the biometric scanner. The SMUFS device will have the last 4 digits of the Mac address at the beginning of the scanner name, from the back of the device.
Note, if you do not see your SMUFS device, you may need to disconnect any Bluetooth devices that are currently in use. (i.e. Bluetooth Car Kits for phone/music)
Once you open the bioCollect app, you will see the following screen. You will need to click on the settings button in the lower left hand corner to setup your fingerprint scanner.
Once you are in Settings, click on the “Scanner” tab to configure your fingerprint scanner.
Configuring the Fingerprint Scanner
Once you are on the Scanner tab, you will need to enable Bluetooth on your device.
Once Bluetooth is enabled, the fingerprint scanner will show up listed under “Available Devices”. Click on your scanner name to Pair the scanner. (The SMUFS scanner will have the last 4 digits of the Mac address at the beginning of the scanner name)
Once the fingerprint scanner is paired, the name will show up under “Paired Devices”.
Once the fingerprint scanner is connected, go back to the Settings tab.

You can then fill in the Name field with a device identifier. The Device ID# and Name will show up in the body of emailed prints.
