Facebook wants selfies of its users to authenticate

Facebook is testing a new feature to be sure of the identity of a user in case of suspicious activity. Several users have been asked by the social network a photo of their face before being able to access the site. “Thank you for sending a photo of you clearly showing your face. We will check and then will delete it permanently from our servers “, displays the message.

In a press release sent to the specialized site Wired, Facebook has recognized this experimentation, carried out for the help to ” detect the suspicious activities in the different levels of interaction with the site, such as the creation of an account, sending friend request, the configuration of the means of payment for advertisements, or the creation and editing of advertisements “.
