“Facial recognition” refers to technology capable of identifying a person from an image.
It is typically used to control access in the same way as other biometrics such as fingerprint or eye iris recognition systems.
Many social media platforms, most notably Facebook, use facial recognition technology.
Security services and police in many countries also use it, while some smartphones only unlock once it recognises its owner's face.
A significant benefit of a facial recognition system is that it does not require the cooperation of a subject to work.
However, facial recognition is less accurate than other biometric systems.
Ideco sells biometric products and services.
