When Facebook changed its name to Meta, Mark Zuckerberg announced changes and news in its services in order to connect that ecosystem or Metaverse. And their products are already experiencing this, as Instagram will add an extra layer of security to verify the identity of an account, for example.
Selfie video to start Instagram
Such as leaked on his social networks expert and leakster Matt Navarra , Instagram will ask users of the social network to verify their identity when they log into the account with a selfie video, a short registration of your face that the platform will delete after 30 days.
The Meta social network introduced a system of identification based on the user’s face, through which the user is asked to record a short video where you see his head from different directions. This new level of security tries to help confirm that the user is a real person, although it is not detailed if only in the case of newly created accounts or in all, including existing ones.
It will be deleted after one month
As we have pointed out to you, according to Navarre himself, the selfie video will not be seen on Instagram, and will be deleted after 1 month. He also says that this app action does not collect biometric data from him and that he does not use facial recognition technology.
Undoubtedly a useful measure to prevent fraud and identity theft, but it remains to be seen whether it will please the billions of users of the Meta social network equally.
