It is estimated that the average person spends a minimum of 3hours on the phone daily. It is therefore not surprising that our phones have become smarter enabling us to do much more than just make a call or send a text message.

One of the latest innovation in today’s smartphone update is facial recognition.

Facial recognition system is a computer application capable of identifying or verifying a person from a digital image or a video frame from a video source.

The most significant importance of facial recognition is the level of security it grants to the owner. This is because it is practically impossible to game the system yet. It is expected that other security systems and banking applications will soon leverage this technology to enhance security around mobile user and financial transactions.
