FaceCheck

Added: Jun 13, 2023

FaceCheck quickly and accurately verifies identities, locates criminals, and helps protect against fraudsters using facial recognition technology.

What does FaceCheck do?

We sadly now live in a time where online scams and catfishing is a ‘normal’ thing. It’s hard to trust someone, especially online. I’ve definitely been in a few situations in my time where I’ve questioned who I’ve been engaging with online. This is where FaceCheck.ID comes in. FaceCheck.ID is an AI-facial recognition platform that allows you to upload an image of someone and discover their online presence. FaceCheck.ID doesn’t just pull from social media platforms, but also videos, news outlets and mugshots!

It’s essentially a face recognition search engine created to provide peace of mind. A platform that has your back and helps you understand who you’re really engaging with online. Once you’ve uploaded your image, FaceCheck.ID verifies a range of images that are similar, close to or are a certain match. They have a ‘Match Scale’ that helps you understand how certain a match actually is. This ranges from Certain match - 90 to 100, Confident match - 83 to 89, Uncertain Match - 70 to 82 and Weak Match - 50-69, so you’ll quickly be able to see and understand if there is any comparison.

If you notice that your image appears in a search and you would would like it to be removed, you can request to get it taken down from the site, free of charge (if suitable). This is a real positive step from FaceCheck.ID, they want to be trusted by you and also want to make sure that you’re fully comfortable.
Safety is key when it comes to this kind of thing. Throughout the site you’ll see that FaceCheck.ID are constantly flagging how important it is to keep safety at the forefront of your mind, highlighting that you shouldn’t be engaging with anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable.

What’s missing for me from this platform is a ‘what next’ step. FaceCheck.ID seem to be missing the next stage of the journey. What happens if you do find a 95% confident match? What should you do/not do with this information? It would be great to see them create a document of useful resources that you can use to help support you in the next phase.

FaceCheck.ID is free and accessible to all, every one deserves peace of mind on the internet! However, relying solely on FaceCheck.ID is not recommended. Keep in mind that many different factors can effect the outcome of the AI face recognition like quality of image, angles and the Dopplegänger effect (more about this below), so please take the results with a pinch of salt and make sure you do your own digging too!

We Love:

  • Extremely simple to use
  • FaceCheck.ID does not store any of your sensitive or personal data
  • Put your mind at rest for free!

We Hate:

  • You may experience processing delays

Our Verdict on FaceCheck

FaceCheck.ID will help you identify someone’s online presence and see what they’ve been up to. It’s important to make sure you’re also doing your own research and taking the results with a pinch of salt - AI isn’t always right!

If you’re wanting to specifically date online safely, I’d suggest using Social Catfish instead of FaceCheck.ID, as this is targeted towards people who are solely dating in the online space and they have specific features for this.

But if you are looking for a more generic platform and you’re currently questioning an online engagement, feel like you’re getting scammed or just feel like something isn’t right, FaceCheck.ID is a great place to start.

Compared Alternatives

  • PimEyes - If you want to protect your own online presence, PimEyes is the platform you should be using. They help you claim rights to images, notify you when a new image has been found and help you delete your images from external sites. But it does come at a cost!
  • Social Catfish - Is a dating investigation service created to help you date safely online - if you’re looking for more a general search, make sure to use FaceCheck.ID instead.

Features

  • AI-facial recognition platform
  • Real person verification
  • Photo removal

Use-Cases

  • Dating app identity confirmation
  • Social media user confirming authenticity of new connection
  • Business owner preventing business fraud

Insider Tips

  • You can integrate FaceCheck.ID’s facial search into your app with the facial recognition reverse image face search API.
  • Something to keep in mind when using FaceCheck.ID, is the Doppelgänger effect. This is someone who is biologically unrelated to you, but looks extremely similar to you - it’s wild. So try not to jump to conclusions straight away and make sure you are uploading high quality images to help save some of the heartache.
