Facebook is in process to develop a functionality to regain the access to the locked Facebook account by using your face to verify your identity.
The top social media platform is working on facial recognition technology to let users to get access to their locked Facebook accounts. As per TechCrunch, this will be useful for those who can’t receive two-factor authentication SMS, like on a plane or while traveling abroad or if one loses access to the email account. In a statement, Facebook told 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, which were taken to make sure account owners, can confirm their identity.”
Whether the Facebook recognition can be crocked by a photo or an evil twin is something we will be talking about when Facebook officially share demo of the feature. Although Facebook has an advantage
that it has an ample photo of the users in its database (photos users have uploaded) which may help it make facial recognition smarter than apple’s Face Id.
And if you think facial recognition to be a low grade feature, then we would like to remind you that Facebook has been using facial recognition technology for years when it makes tag suggestions to the photos uploaded.
