According to a media report on Tech Crunch, Facebook is now set to get its own version of Face ID – a feature we have seen Cupertino-based tech firm, Apple Inc. unveil on latest its iPhone flagship, the iPhone X that was launched in September alongside the iPhone 7 and 7+.

According to the report, the Menlo Park-based social networking firm is testing a method to regain access to a Facebook account by using facial recognition. In case you get locked out of your Facebook account, the Face ID could come in really handy.

“We are testing a new feature for people who want to quickly and easily verify account ownership during the account recovery process. This optional feature is available only on devices you’ve already used to log in. It is another step, alongside two-factor authentication via SMS, that were taking to make sure account owners can confirm their identity,” Tech Crunch quotes a spokesman of Facebook.

No comment or mention of when or where the new feature will be rolled out exactly. No other information about the feature is known as of now.
