OMG! Facebook’s Creepy Captcha Test Is Forcing Users To Upload Selfies
Facebook, the popular social network created by Mark Zuckerberg, has begun to experiment with a new method of identity verification, which consists of analyzing a photograph of the face of the user in question.
This is how the new Facebook CAPTCHA will work
Obviously, the social network giant Facebook has become a platform that exceeds what we can call a “traditional” social network. The millions of users with whom account not only use it to share content, but also to inform themselves and develop initiatives, among other things.
That is why ensuring the identity of users has become one of the most important tasks by developers, who have to deal with false profiles every day or the questioned false news advertised by the entire social platform.
While the social network giant Facebook provides several identification systems, such as two-step authentication or login through the profile photo, now plans to begin testing a new way to identify the identity of a profile.
According to the reports, the social network giant Facebook’s new identity verification system would be a user’s profile picture or you can say that the system will ask you for your selfie so that the system can accurately identify the face of the individual. It would be an alternative method to the classic CAPTCHA that exists in the systems.
a friend sent me this: Facebook is now locking users out of account features, then demanding that those users “verify” their account to get back in by scanning an image of their face. AN IMAGE OF THEIR FACE. pic.twitter.com/T4TIsJFxX8

In effect, the new identification system would be, essentially, an automated process that would analyze the image and verify that it is a single photo, not repeated and not extracted from any network. The system is both automatic and manual, so it is activated whenever suspicious activity is detected in the account, as confirmed by Facebook to Wired.
Regarding the availability of the verification process, some users claim that the system is producing some failures and access under this modality is taking some time, so it is expected that the developers will improve the process until the moment in which it will be made available to all users of the social network.
