Facebook working on facial recognition system users
The company Facebook is working on facial recognition of the user which can be used to restore access to your account.
This functionality can be useful when you do not have access to email and no way to get SMS to the phone (e.g. on Board).
First, social networks have spread the following screenshot, after which the representatives of Facebook confirmed the development of the new system:
«We are testing a new functionality for those who want to quickly and easily verify your identity in the process of recovery account. This optional feature is only available on devices that you already went to Facebook under your account. This is another version of the recovery account, which we added to two-factor authentication via SMS, so that users can verify their identity».
If the tests confirm that the system operates reliably and cannot be compromised by hackers, it will be available to a wider audience.
