Facebook just acquired technology to quickly verify someone’s ID
Facebook just purchased a startup that allows its customers to quickly verify that someone’s identification documentation is authentic.
It’s unclear at this time what Facebook plans to do with the technology, but it’s not unreasonable to assume that Facebook may use Confirm.io tech in the future to verify the identity of users and make account recovery a relatively simple process.
