Facial recognition tech moves from smartphones to the boardroom
Facial recognition technology, which has begun to gain traction on mobile devices like the iPhone X and various Android smartphones, could soon show up at work – and at the airport.
The technology uses a person’s face to authenticate their identity, making it a potentially important security tool.
In 2015, Google launched its “Trusted Face” feature as part of its Android 5.0 Lollipop update. Trusted Face, part of Android’s Smart Lock technology, works in the same way as Apple’s Face ID, which replaced the Touch ID fingerprint reader on the iPhone X.
