Facebook has developed a face recognition application

Facebook is constantly changing its attitude towards facial recognition technology, but in the past, their enthusiasm has been much greater

Business Insider unearthed Facebook data, learning that between 2015 and 2016, the company developed an app that allowed it to recognize colleagues and their friends.

What did it do?

The functionality is simple - you just had to point tosomeone’s smartphone, and the program will display his name, surname and position. BI suggested that the application can recognize anyone who has a Facebook account, but the company denied this statement, saying that it can only be recognized by enabling the corresponding function in the settings.

Will there be updates and public access?

Application support has already been discontinued, and something like this is unlikely to be soon. Facebook has chosen the direction of privacy and security, which, as practice shows, with face recognition does not fit well.
