Facebook收购生物ID验证创企Confirm.io

据TechCrunch报道,Facebook再度收购一家科技创企Confirm.io。该公司提供的API可以让其他公司快速验证目标用户身份证件(如驾照)的真实性。本次收购完成后,Confirm.io将全员并入Facebook旗下。

自三年前发布以来,Confirm.io已经从包括Cava Capital在内的投资者手中筹集了至少400万美元。

据悉,Facebook可能会利用这项技术让被黑客入侵或者密码丢失的用户重新确认他们的身份。其实早在去年九月,Facebook就已经开始测试自拍解锁功能。而再往前数到2013年,Facebook则允许用户邮寄一张照片ID或其他身份验证材料的副本,以重新获得他们的帐户访问权限。

或许有一天, iPhone X上的脸部识别码最终可以向第三方开放,以便在各种应用程序中提供更多的生物识别安全性。随着我们的钥匙和支付卡成为数字化和我们的手机的一部分,身份证真的是你必须携带一个老派钱包的最后一个原因。

Facebook has confirmed to TechCrunch that it’s acquired… Confirm.io. The startup offered an API that let other companies quickly verify someone’s government-issued identification card, like a driver’s license, was authentic. The Boston-based startup will shut down as both its team and technology are rolled into Facebook, where it could help users who are locked out of their accounts.

Confirm.io had raised at least $4 million from investors, including Cava Capital, since launching three years ago.

Facebook could potentially use the technology to have people confirm their identities if they’re locked out of their accounts after being hacked or losing their password. Back in September we spotted Facebook testing a feature that let you unlock your account using a selfie. And since at least 2013, Facebook has let people mail in a copy of their photo ID or other identity verification materials in order to regain access to their account.

And one day, perhaps Facebook could even serve as your ID card in some situations. Face ID on the iPhone X could eventually be opened to third parties to power more biometric security across apps. With our keys and payment cards becoming digitized and part of our phone, the ID card is really the last reason you have to carry an old-school wallet.
