Common Myths About Face Recognition Technology

Common Myths About Face Recognition Technology

Facial recognition technology is not new, although it is more widely used today than ever before. The increased use is due to the scalability of the technology, with specialized systems and software now available at a very reasonable cost for businesses of any size and across all industries.

There are many different misunderstandings about the use of face recognition software and systems. These misunderstandings are typically based on old technology and incorrect reports shared across the internet and across social media platforms.

Businesses using face recognition systems for verification of identification should be aware of the common myths and provide end-users with accurate information about the process and the data.

Myth: Face recognition is not accurate

New technology offers extremely accurate identification of the key points of the face to provide a true verification. Having the added benefit of real-time recognition based on a photo on record provides seamless use of the technology for both the business as well as the end-user.

Myth: Everyone can be identified

The use of this technology is limited to those individuals with existing photos on record. To add an individual to the company’s database, a specific type of verified identification, such as a passport or ID card is used to establish the photo on record. The user then takes a selfie with each login or access, ensuring a match with the photo on file.

Myth: There are ways to “beat” facial recognition software

Top face recognition software is designed to identify the use of masks, still images, or altered photo and identification documents. This provides an additional level of accuracy and provides an immediate yes or no response for the match.
