Facebook joins facial recognition

You travel a lot? If the answer is yes, it is very likely that you have ever found your facebook account blocked because of this, as this social network blocks the connections of unusual countries . To disable this, you usually have to use 2-step authentication, which needs to send a code to the phone (either by SMS or with an application) and therefore Internet connection, which can be a problem if you do not have roaming free .

Unsurprisingly, the social network of Mark Zuckerberg has proven enough alternatives to the solution of sending a code to the mobile phone, but never find something good enough. So far, since Facebook will be able to use a facial recognition system as two-step authentication .

Facebook FaceID?

It would be wonderful if Facebook could use the same technology that Apple incorporates into your iPhone X to unlock your phone, but unfortunately this is not so. The Facebook team has decided to implement this two-step authentication solution in its own way, that is, using its own facial recognition system .

We do not know too much about this new system that Facebook is developing, but supposedly will be able to differentiate your face from all people and will allow access to your account once the password is set, thus confirming that it is you.

Yes, there is something strange in all this. Is this new system really safe? Well the truth is that it is not even new, this system we found in the same Samsung Galaxy Note8 and does not work really well as it detects as valid the photos . Therefore, anyone with a photo of your face can unlock your Facebook without any problems, yes, knowing your password.

Be that as it may, all we know right now is that Facebook is testing with this new system , but as usual, we have no way to get detailed information of these tests until the Facebook team decides to make it public.
