The Facebook giant will no longer use face recognition for photos and videos on its platform, said the company which underlines the need to assess the benefits and growing concerns about the technology.
In the coming weeks we will close the face recognition system on Facebook. “We continue to see facial recognition technology as a tool, but there are also growing concerns about its use,” explains Zuckerberg.
Announcing the ban on the use of facial recognition, Facebook is committed to canceling facial traces accumulated so far by more than a billion people.
“More than a third of active daily users have opted for our facial recognition and now removing it will result in the removal of more than a billion facial marks,” the company said.
Technology has created a lot of problems for Facebook.
The Federal Trade Commission imposed a $ 5 billion fine on it in 2019 and one of the reasons was face recognition.
