Verification

In an era of deepfakes and digital mistrust, some networks are building new tools to verify real people.

In an era of deepfakes and digital mistrust, some networks are building new tools to verify real people.

For example, dating app Tinder introduced a new Photo Verification feature in January 2020 that compares a series of real-time selfies to a cache of existing profile photos using both A.I. and humans. Those who pass the test receive a blue check mark verifying that the user is a real person.

Who and what is real online is becoming harder to determine, which is why authenticity is an important trend going forward.
