Almost all social media sites, including Instagram, are seeing an increase in the number of fraudulent or unauthorised access profiles. On its Instagram platform, Meta has now found a solution to this problem. Instagram is planning on allowing users to verify videos on its site. Matt Navara, a social media expert, has tweeted a snapshot showing the new feature's update.
According to a screenshot shared by Matt Navara on his Twitter account, Instagram will use video selfies to determine whether a user's account is legitimate. The user will be requested to film a brief video of his face, which will be matched with the profile image, as part of the verification procedure. According to the corporation, these video selfies will not be saved in the database and will be removed after 30 days.
'We require a brief video in which you have to tilt your head in different angles and reveal your face,' Instagram promised users. This will assist us in confirming that you are the legitimate owner of the account, and your identity is going to be validated.' Users' video selfies will not be shared with others and will not appear on their profiles. . On these videos, the company has committed not to gather users' biometric data or use face recognition technology.
Only account creators who are new to the system are required: This new security feature has not been officially announced by the company. According to XDA engineers, video verification will be introduced solely for new Instagram users that register accounts. People who already have an Instagram account will not be requested to verify their account with a video.
Facebook (META) has claimed that hate speech levels on both FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM had reduced. Hate speech rates on both platforms have been declining for the fourth quarter in a row. In the third quarter, it decreased by 0.02 percent.
