How does the Mandalorian succeed in having his face scanned? - Close-up of Woman Having Ultrasonic Skin Treatment in Salon 

In Season 2, Ep 7, the Mandalorian has to take his imperial trooper helmet off in order to have his face scanned by an imperial data terminal.

He is successful in doing it.

How did this happen? His face should not be recognised by any imperial data server.

Best Answer

My take on this is that this might be part of the scanning process Mayfeld mentioned when they were overlooking the transport route.

"When you get scanned and your genetic signatur shows up on any new-republic register, you're gonna be detected and it's guns out."

Since Mando is not part of these registers (I assume) he could scan his face without tripping the alarm.

I guess as "remnants" of the empire they might not have the possibilities to create a record on each and every one of their troopers/captains/squads/etc., so tapping into republic records to keep unauthorized personel from accessing the terminals is the next best thing. People like Mando being off the records might either be an oversight or a calculated risk.

Answer 2

They scan the face to monitor who used the terminal.

The Empire is in ruins and there are many different factions, so they probably don't have records for every troop from offworld anymore.

They might not even keep such a database for the same reasons that the Rebellion wouldn't have - OpSec.

But... they'd probably be able to slice into official republic databases and keep tabs on their operatives.

They might not auth against a central Imperial database anymore, but they can certainly auth against their hacked Republic info and sound an alarm if they get a hit.
