FaceTec 3D face biometrics to authenticate users on new social media platform Voice

FaceTec is providing facial biometrics for social media company Voice for a new social media platform to avoid the widespread mistrust created by bots and fake accounts on social media networks.

3D Face Authentication from FaceTec will be used to secure an online community environment Voice built based on the EOS.IO blockchain. Voice says the community is safe and secure, and rewards responsible behavior. It operates as a tokenized social media platform, which makes user authenticity and security top priority, according to the announcement.

“Voice is building a more transparent and more accountable social media,” comments Voice CEO Salah Zalatimo. “We’re creating an alternative for anyone disappointed that social media today puts ad revenue above authenticity. Using a trusted biometric identity solution that actually delivers is a key part of that. And it was clear FaceTec 3D Face Authentication delivers exactly what we needed.”

The Voice platform grants users Voice Tokens when other users ‘like’ their posts, and the tokens can be redeemed for preferential post placement.

“We’re very excited to be working with Voice on such a well-principled project,” adds Kevin Alan Tussy, FaceTec CEO. “Our proven performance for many tens-of-millions of users in high-value applications like banking, transportation, crypto wallets, and national digital ID programs showed Voice that FaceTec could provide the foundation their platform required. FaceTec is proud to have built tech that has helped Voice make their authentic social media platform a reality.”

FaceTec recently launched a campaign to promote the use of liveness detection in all biometric authentications.
