What is Buddy punching? #

Buddy punching is the practice of one employee clocking in or out for another employee. This practice is illegal in most countries, as it can lead to significant payroll fraud. Employers can use biometric authentication, such as fingerprint or facial recognition, to reduce the risk of buddy punching.

Using Where’s My Staff, buddy punching will be eliminated permanently, the employee app on employees’ phones will function as both an identity and an attendance card, and the employee app for XYZ employee, for example, will work only on her/his phone, and we invest heavily in the employee app’s security, so the employee cannot deceive by changing mobile time and location through fake locator apps and other coding and hacking methods.

So, if an employee wishes to deceive, all he or she needs to do is provide his or her mobile phone to another person, which is neither appropriate nor sensible in regular circumstances.
