Facebook Could Start Using Facial Recognition to Verify Who You Are

(ANTIMEDIA While Facebook has quietly been developing its facial recognition software for Aloha, a controversial video chat device set to debut in May 2018, the company is reportedly testing “a facial recognition feature to help secure your account,” according to TheNextWeb’s Matt Navarro, who posted a screenshot of the new feature on Twitter.

We’re revolutionizing the news industry, but we need your help! Click here to get started.

Facebook confirmed the limited rollout of the software, telling Techcrunch:

“We are testing a new feature for people who want to quickly and easily verify account ownership during the account recovery process. This optional feature is available only on devices you’ve already used to log in. It is another step, alongside two-factor authentication via SMS, that were taking to make sure account owners can confirm their identity.”

The feature will likely be available to more users once developers are satisfied with the product’s reliability, but no other details are available at this time regarding the timeline or implementation.
