Our Face image will be our ID when ordering online.

[ Edited ]

Just think in the future our face image will be how we order on line.  Not our finger prints.  

 

It will be like a selfie while using our phone or computer.

 

So it makes sense that the Q will be using our face in this forum for our Avatar?   Oh heck nothing makes sense at times.   We might as will sit back and enjoy the ride.  Things are changing.

Seems like if an image of our face is our security pass, being required to use it as an avatar would be very unsafe. That seems like putting my password in a picture and using that as my avatar.

When you really think about it nothing online is really safe.  

Our face is being watched everywhere we go when we leave our home.  

I cover the hole on my computer with PostIt paper where the camera has the opening.  Just incase someone wants to watch; with me not knowing about it.

I cover the camera on my desktop, too! And on my iPad. No creepy snoops allowed in my private space!

not for me.  I am opposed to using that technology to buy things.

Using a facial image for online ID, besides being a scary idea, seems unreliable. People often change their facial features with plastic surgery these days, lol.

This is still in the research area.  Who knows when it will begin.  

 

As for the face change...they are looking at the eyes and what is shown within the eyes.

It makes sense.  After all, people don't ever look alike. Man Wink

Hi Sparrow!  I will reserve my right to privacy especially for something like the Q.  I'll just buy like I have been on other sites.  Things are changing for certain, but maybe not for the better.

What exactly would they be seeing that you're concerned about (other than your face)?
