In October, the company unveiled its “sentry biometrics safe” technology, a feature that lets you sign into your account using your fingerprint, palmprint or iris scan.
This technology is currently only available in the US, Canada, Brazil, Australia, Germany, the UK, France, Russia, Japan and Mexico, but it is expected to roll out to other markets in the coming months.
The company is also working on a secure smartphone that can log into Facebook with the use of an iris scanner.
But while the iris-scan technology is promising, it doesn’t do much for privacy.
According to a study by the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs, the security of biometric-based authentication systems depends on whether users are allowed to opt-out of the system, or if they’re required to log in.
In the US and Canada, users must have a Facebook account to opt out of Facebook’s biometric verification system, but the technology only works if the account holder has a Facebook login.
This means if you want to use Facebook with your mobile phone, you’ll have to either get a Facebook app on your phone, or install an app on a mobile device.
This would also mean that a person can’t use their fingerprint to log into a Facebook or Instagram account, or use it to log onto a VPN service.
“We’re working on it,” said Facebook COO Alex Stamos.
“We think it’s a really important and important piece of the privacy puzzle.”
In Australia, Facebook recently introduced a secure biometric login system for people using their mobile phone.
This login process can be used to authenticate with Facebook without the need to log out.
However, the process is currently limited to users in the Australian Capital Territory, and not in other regions.
The system requires users to provide their fingerprints and iris scans to be authenticated.
If the person does not provide these, the system won’t work.
In the US government’s Privacy Shield report, Facebook has also said that it is working on biometric authentication technology for users in areas where fingerprint and irIS scanner technology is available.
“There are two major things that people need to be aware of when using this biometric technology: you need to verify the individual’s identity, and also to make sure that you’re using the right authentication technology,” said Stamos in an interview with Forbes.
But, while the Facebook system is currently restricted to a limited number of locations, Stamos said Facebook has no plans to roll this out to all users.
“We think that it’s an area where people should be able to use this for their own privacy, but that it does make some people nervous that it might be a problem,” he said.
Stamos said that the company has not yet made any decisions on when it plans to add biometric security to Facebook accounts.
