In one of our previous articles, we discussed how important it is to be cautious while using Facebook due to the high degree of scam going on therein. We equally gave some suggestions and how to be safe. Today we will be highlighting an interesting activity that will make everyone safe on Facebook.
Utilizing Facebook face recognition
Last year, Facebook introduced face recognition feature. The feature serves many purposes such as tag suggestions. But the most important use of the feature is for security. If a person uploads your picture or uses it on his profile or wall, Facebook will give you notification. The essence is to help you find out when somebody wants to impersonate you or create a fake Facebook account using your picture.
To achieve the above, Facebook collects what it calls “template” for any picture you upload. Special identity is assigned to your photos and are analysed such that whenever a picture of you, whether single or in group, is uploaded, Facebook will recognize and alert you.
How is this a security measure? If you receive notification about a picture you never uploaded and you find out that someone is impersonating you, you can quickly report the account of the impostor. However, you must enable Facebook face recognition feature before you can use it.
How to enable Facebook face recognition
Go to Facebook setting, click on privacy and then face recognition. You will be ask to “please review the face recognition setting” click “continue”.
On the following window select ” turn on”.
While this action might mean nothing to you because you may never be a victim to Facebook scammers, it might go a long way to protect others, including your loved ones. If every Facebook user utilizes this feature to the full, the risk of using Facebook will drastically reduce.
