While every smartphone manufacturer is using facial recognition technology to provide better security, Facebook is liberally turning in facial recognition automatically for all users. The new Face Recognition feature will help you to find photos/videos you’re in but not tagged, protect you from strangers using your photos/videos, and also tell people who’re in photos or videos.
Well, Facebook has taken a good move by adding the face recognition feature inside the app which will reduce cybercrime and online bullying. Sound great! Isn’t it? However, if you don’t want to use this new feature, then you can easily turn off Facebook’s Face Recognition on your Android and iPhone.
