In the context of the recent news about Facebook’s Meta Verified subscription service, the need for robust identity verification becomes even more apparent. Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the launch of Meta Verified. This service is designed to provide users with an enhanced level of account verification. It also adds extra protection from impersonation accounts, and access to direct customer support.

In the age of digital identity and security, the need for reliable and robust identity verification has become paramount. FACEKI, a facial recognition platform built to fight fraud, offers a solution to this growing need.

Meta’s Verified subscription service

The Meta verified subscription service will start at $11.99 a month on the web or $14.99 a month on iOS. It will initially be launched in Australia and New Zealand before being made available in more countries around the world. To get the blue badge, customers will need to provide a government ID that matches their profile name and picture. Users must also be above 18 to be eligible for the service.

Meta Verified subscription aims to increase the authenticity and security of Facebook’s services. This is done by making it easier for users to verify their accounts. The blue badge that comes with the subscription confirms that the user is the real deal. Furthermore it proves that their account has been authenticated with a government ID. This extra layer of security is especially important for high-profile individuals or businesses with growing online audiences, who might be more vulnerable to impersonation accounts and online fraud.

In addition to the blue badge, Meta Verified subscribers will also receive more protection from impersonation with proactive account monitoring. They will also have access to a real person for common account issues. They will benefit from increased visibility and reach, with prominence in some areas of the platform like search, comments, and recommendations.

Meta’s new subscription service follows in the footsteps of other platforms like Twitter. The platform has its own verification subscription service called “Twitter Blue”. However, Meta Verified is unique in that it will be made available on both Facebook and Instagram. However, separate subscriptions will be required for each platform.

What does this mean for Faceki?

FACEKI’s facial recognition technology and document verification would provide a strong foundation for a similar service. This is particularly in light of the platform’s global reach. With anti-fraud liveness checks, AML/PEP and tamper checks, FACEKI is well equipped to provide the same level of verification services as Meta Verified, but with a broader scope.

Moreover, FACEKI’s open API, cloud-based and on-premise integration, and flexibility for custom integrations make it an ideal solution for businesses looking to integrate identity verification into their existing systems. FACEKI’s emphasis on user-friendliness and fast verification times also make it an excellent choice for businesses seeking a streamlined customer onboarding process.
