Facebook has developed a face recognition application

Facebook is constantly changing its attitude towards face recognition technology, but in the past their enthusiasm has been far

more. Business Insider magazine unearthed Facebook data after learning that between 2015 and 2016, the company developed an application that could 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.
