Face recognition is currently a very active research topic due to the great variety of applications it can offer. Moreover, nowadays it is very common for people to have mobile devices such as smart phones or laptops which have an integrated digital camera. This gives the opportunity to develop face recognition applications for this type of devices. This paper treats the problem of face verification in mobile devices. The problem is discussed and analysed, observing which are the difficulties that are encountered. Some algorithms for face recognition are analysed and optimised so that they are better suited for the resource constrains of mobile devices.
