The most popular global social network, Facebook, is reportedly working on a revolutionary new feature that will once and for all change the way users log into their accounts.
NEW! Facebook working on a facial recognition feature to help secure your account
Facebook has directed its attention to facial recognition as the solution for user verification and allowing users to log into their accounts. While Facebook might be planning to add this new feature, it will not be the only method and users would still be able to use the social network as they were before.
Facial recognition takes away the issues of the manual process of logging-in using a standard password and username. With this new tech, users can log-in by just looking at their phone. For users, it provides sheer convenience along with a little more security.
It is unclear as to where and for what all this new feature will be used, but at the onset, it sure looks good for the brand.
How Facial Recognition Works?
Facial recognition works by identifying the key features of users face and matching it with the stored profile. In comparison to biometric security, the Face ID provides better security as Apple strongly believes that it’s highly improbable for a person to have a face exactly similar to someone else.
