Hey, did you know that you found yourself on a photo of a friend who shared it on Facebook? Not? The website, however, knows it perfectly well if you have given your consent to use your image in such a way. Don’t worry though – Facebook’s facial recognition is now over.
The meta made it clear – Facebook’s face recognition is over
Meta, or the renamed company, so far known as Facebook, will resign from face recognition on the Facebook platform in the “coming weeks”. I am talking about the complete removal of the function from this social media, which is able to automatically recognize you in the photos posted by other.
As a result, Facebook will additionally remove over a billion face recognition templates, and even automatically indicate the names and surnames of people in photos for the visually impaired. This is another blow against consumer face recognition systems, and comes a year after Meta (formerly Facebook) has been sued.

Now Meta has announced that Facebook’s facial recognition will be completely removed. The decision was made “in the wake of growing concerns about the wider use of facial recognition, including uncertainties about the regulation of technology,” says Engadget. We are talking at least about facial recognition with the participation of external servers, because the company will not necessarily completely give up face recognition and will most likely use it for security purposes implemented at the smartphone level.
