Facebook begins testing video verification »GoGetNews News


Jane Manchun Wong, a well-known expert in the field of mobile applications, tweeted that the social network Facebook has begun to test the account verification system by video. This is done to combat fake accounts.

Wong said that for identification, users will have to record a video, after which the system will analyze the video and confirm the identity of the account owner. The clip will need to be removed on the front camera of the smartphone and show the face from all sides. It is promised that this data will be deleted within 30 days "after confirmation of identity."

According to the expert, the system will analyze the appearance automatically, but this has not yet been confirmed. Perhaps the neural network will only confirm that there is a living person in front of the camera, not a photo.

It is noted that over the year Facebook recorded an increase in the number of fake accounts. Since the beginning of 2019, more than two billion such accounts have been deleted. This raises questions about the security of this approach. Given the problems with leaks, it is unlikely that many will want to transfer their own appearance to the social network.
