Basic Setup

General Requirements

The requirements for the SDK are:

  • Android 4.4 (API level 19) or higher
  • ARMv7 processor with Neon, ARM64-v8a
  • Internet connection


Required permissions are linked automatically by the SDK.

The following permissions are optional:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATE"/>
<uses-feature android:name="" android:required="false"/>

Note: On devices running Android Marshmallow (6.0) and above, you need to acquire android.permissions.CAMERA dynamically before initializing the SDK.

Use getRequiredPermissions to get a list of all required permissions.

public static String[] getRequiredPermissions();


Proguard settings are applied automatically as they are defined as consumer proguard rules within the SDK. The current rules can also be found in the Sample app.


Use the SDK in your application by including the Maven repositories with the following build.gradle configuration in Android Studio:

repositories {
	maven { url '' }

Check the Android Studio sample projects to learn the most common use.


You can filter which architecture to use by specifying the abiFilters.

Note: The abiFilters command in the ndk closure affects the Google Play Store filtering.

defaultConfig {
	ndk {
		abiFilters armeabi-v7a","arm64-v8a","x86","x86_64"

The apk can be split based on the architecture if multiple apks should be uploaded to the Google Play Store. Google Play Store manages to deliver the appropriate apk for the device.

splits {
	abi {
		enable true
		include armeabi-v7a","arm64-v8a","x86","x86_64"
		universalApk false

Note: You get an UnsatisfiedLinkError, if the app and the CPU architecture do not match.


Localizing labels

Our SDK supports the default Android localization features for different languages and cultures. All label texts and button titles in the SDK can be changed and localized by adding the required Strings you want to change in a strings.xml file in a values directory for the language and culture preference that you want to support. You can check out strings that are modifiable at .../src/main/res/values/strings-jumio-sdk.xml within our Sample application.

For our products Netverify & Fastfill, Authentication & Document Verification we support following languages for your convenience:

  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Czech
  • Dutch
  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Greek
  • Hungarian
  • Italian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Romanian
  • Spanish

Our SDK supports accessibility features. Visually impaired users can now enable TalkBack or change the font size on their device. The accessibility-strings that are used by TalkBack contain accessibility_ in their key and can be also modified in the strings.xml.

Get started


Previous version

The previous release version 3.6.0 of the Jumio Mobile SDK is supported until 2020-08-28.

In case the support period is expired, no bug fixes and technical support are provided anymore (bugs are typically fixed in the upcoming versions). Older SDK versions will keep functioning with our server until further notice, but we highly recommend to always update to the latest version to benefit from SDK improvements and bug fixes.
