Apparently, in the near future, the social network X may introduce a new feature – a procedure for authenticating the identity of users based on a passport photo. In addition, to complete this procedure, you will need to take a selfie with your passport.
Former Twitter feature researcher Nim Ouji took note of this update.
He noticed that Elon Musk’s profile has an “ID verified” badge, which probably serves as an example of a verified account.
Next, he discovered a description of the upcoming feature in the app.
According to the instructions, to confirm the identity, the user will need to provide a scan of a national passport, as well as take a selfie with a passport in hand.
The authenticity of the submitted images will be checked both by the moderators of the X social network and by a third party company Au10tix. Photographs of documents, including biometric data, will be stored on the social media infrastructure for 30 days and may be used for security purposes.
