Facebook starts asking users to upload selfie
Facebook starts asking users to upload selfie
Published at: 2 weeks ago


California, USA: Facebook has begun requesting users upload a selfie to verify they are a real person and not a bot.

According to Facebook, the automated photo verification process, which checks if the photo uploaded is unique, is being tested on a small pool of users.

“Please upload a photo of yourself that clearly shows your face,” the message reads. Facebook says it will check the photo and then “permanently delete it from our servers”.

A Facebook spokesperson said, "When our systems detect suspicious activity, we may ask for the account owner to prove she or he is a real person."

‘One way we do this is to ask the account owner to upload a picture of himself or herself, which we’ll check and then permanently delete from our servers.’

The spokesperson said this helps catch suspicious activity at various points of interaction on the site, including creating an account, sending Friend requests, setting up ads payments, and creating or editing ads.
