Facebook is working on a new feature that will potentially allow its 2-billion strong user base to sign in to their accounts with their face.
According to Tech Crunch, the world’s largest social media platform is currently testing a facial verification system that has been rolled out to select users.
The new feature will apparently work by comparing your face to photos and videos that have been uploaded to the site. But Facebook clarified that their facial recognition technology can only be used during the account recovery process in case the two-factor authentication fails.
Still, we wouldn’t be surprised if Facebook makes the facial recognition feature a future staple since both Apple and Samsung have already incorporated this technology into their flagship phones, although not without a few technical hiccups.
