In order to keep its social network free from malicious bots, Facebook keeps trying out new tactics . In his latest test, he uses face recognition technologies to detect fake profiles.
Feature Discovered by App Researcher Jane Manchun Wong asks you to take a video selfie and turn your head from one side to the other to see if you are not a bot.
"We need a short video in which you turn your head in different directions. This helps us verify your identity and verify that you are a real person.
This is Facebook's face recognition based identity verification
I'm asked to look at different directions within the circle

̵1; Jane Manchun Wong (@wongmjane) November 5, 2019  There is no information about when this feature is introduced or when it will be used. There is currently clarity about how Facebook stores and uses this information.
A Facebook spokesperson told TNW in an email that the company is experimenting with this feature to determine if a real person is operating the account:
This test is one of the steps we use to that a real person leads an account rather than a bot. Face recognition is not used. Instead, it detects motion and determines if there is a face in the video.
If the social network considers a profile wrong, they will be asked to submit a short selfie video for review. It sounds like face recognition to identify real users.
Wong also noted that the social network is trying to improve its verification by ID procedure. With these new methods, Facebook could help make its social network more secure – but it remains to be seen if people will feel comfortable sharing this type of personal information with the company.
