Take random selfie while user is watching video using an app

We are developing an iOS e-learning app that enables users to pay and watch a series of videos hosted online.
The client would like the app to take photos of the user using the device front camera, at random intervals while they are watching the videos (with their permission) to verify their student’s identity and store it in a web based database for admins manual verification.
Will Apple allow us to do this?
Appreciate any advice on this.

Hi @dpktk (Deepak),
To access the camera you will have to ask the user to grant access permission to the camera. This is allowed and there’s nothing wrong. You need to let the user know exactly why you need the access. If you articulate the reason properly when asking for this permission, Apple should not have an issue.
