Facial recognition allows comparing a picture with a video in order to corroborate they feature the same person. Thus verifying the identity of the user. However, this verification method can be improved by adding liveness test, a simple yet powerful tool to enhance your verification security.
How to activate it
Add a liveness field to the verification and set its value to true. The request response will include an instructions field and within it an actions field with a list of actions (i.e., look up, down, left, or right) that must be performed in the video sent to the link.
What are the benefits
- Reduce the likelihood that someone would trick the system by using a printed picture
- The actions and their order are created randomly each time
- Increase the security of the identity verification Keeps the verification fairly simple
