Facebook is reportedly working on facial-recognition software that would verify the identities of users trying to access the app.

Jane Manchun Wong, a technology blogger and app researcher who unlocks features before they launch, tweeted out a prototype of Facebook’s facial-recognition identity login on November 5.

Users would be asked to take a selfie by looking in different directions for facial recognition.
