Now Selfies Can Be Used as Passwords


NewsFeed

A new app called FaceCrypt can secure data on your iPhone and iPad using a picture of your face instead of the usual complex alphanumeric password.

There are also optional security features that require users to blink to prove that they are human or to prevent an unauthorized user from holding a photo of the owner up to the phone’s camera to break into the device.

FaceCrypt’s website acknowledges that poor lighting and even new facial hair may impede facial recognition, so if you grew a mustache for Movember, you should probably input a new photo that your device will recognize.
