Face recognition is a way to recognize or check an individual’s face identity. Face recognition systems can be used to identify people in photos, videos, or in real-time. It is also defined as an application based on biometric artificial intelligence which can identify an individual by analyzing patterns based on face textures and forms.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, facial recognition technology turned out to be beneficial for authorities to fight against the spread of the virus. To maintain social distancing, businesses, government agencies, residential Societies are taking the help of facial recognition tools, replacing contact-based systems, like Biometric for security purposes as well as to track infected patients.

Fingerprints are unique and difficult to mislead. Fingerprint scanners are simple to use. On the plus side, it saves users from the trouble of remembering a password.
On the contrary, if someone gets dirt or grease on their fingers or the scanner, the fingerprint accuracy of a person is reduced. In such situations, the scanner cannot read the fingerprint unless your fingers or the scanner are cleaned.
Facial Recognition the Future of Biometrics
In contrast with fingerprint scanning, facial recognition software is relatively new in smartphones. Using flood illuminator technology, the software identifies 80 nodal points on your face and stores the unique characteristics of the face of a person to store them as face prints. The camera identifies your faceprint and unlocks your phone.
