How To Turn-on Facebook Face Recognition From Your Mobile Phone

Facebook Face recognition is used to analyze the photos and videos that the FB platform thinks you’re in. In this article, you are going to know more about the feature and the basic steps to turn it on and start using. It is for everyone who has gotten the feature, as the steps to get started is simple.

There is some post that Facebook might think that you are in, such as your profile picture, photos, and videos that you’ve been tagged in, to make a unique number for you, called a template. When you turn your face recognition setting on, FB creates your template and uses it to compare to other photos, videos, and other places where the camera is used (like live video) to recognize if you appear in that content.

This said template is not shared with anyone on Facebook. With the face recognition feature turned on, Facebook will be able to do the following;

1. Find photos and videos you’re in so that it can help you review or share content, suggest tags, and provide more relevant content and feature recommendations.

2. When you add a photo, Facebook may suggest that you tag people in photos.

3. If we think that you’re in a photo or video that your friend has added, Facebook may suggest that your friend tag you.

4. Help protect you and others from impersonation and identity misuse, and improve platform reliability.

5. Provide accessibility features by telling people with visual impairments who’s in a photo or video.
