Juniper Research predicts that over 1.4 billion people will use facial recognition to authenticate payments by 2025

Published

A study conducted by analysts at Juniper Research allowed them to make the following prediction: worldwide, the number of users of facial recognition software for secure payments will exceed 1.4 billion by 2025. For comparison – last year there were 671 million such users.

According to analysts, the rapid growth demonstrates how widespread facial recognition is. Its popularity is due to its low adoption threshold. To implement the face recognition function, the front camera of the smartphone and the corresponding software are enough. According to the study, the acceleration in the growth of the facial recognition market is due to the introduction of FaceID technology by Apple, even despite the problems with facial recognition due to the use of masks during the pandemic.

Analysts point to the important role of other biometric authentication tools. In particular, they predict that fingerprint sensors will remain the dominant hardware solution. In 2025, they will be installed in 93% of smartphones with biometric equipment.

In addition, the study showed that the use of voice recognition to confirm payments will also grow – from 111 million users in 2020 to more than 704 million in 2025. At the same time, analysts admit that concerns about its reliability are hindering the spread of this method of confirming payments.

According to Juniper Research, an authentication strategy that combines multiple methods, including facial recognition, fingerprint recognition, voice recognition, and behavioral indicators, is more reliable in terms of providing a secure payment environment.

The electric version of the best selling car in the US

Ford has finally begun shipping its F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck to retail customers.

The electric version of the best-selling car in the US.  Ford F-150 Lightning finally started shipping to retail customers

The company started production of the machines last month, and now the machines have begun to arrive to customers. The very first such lucky person is captured in the photo above.

A resident of Michigan booked a Platinum Trim Lightning package on May 20 last year, and he received the car on May 26 of this year, that is, almost exactly a year later. Interestingly, this person owns a Tesla Model 3, has already posted a Cybertruck deposit, and was considering buying a Rivian R1T.

Since the Ford F-Series is the best-selling car in the US, it’s no surprise that the company has amassed a huge amount of pre-orders for the electric version, and right now Ford can’t say exactly when it will be able to fulfill all these orders. This year, the company is going to produce only 40,000 cars, despite the fact that orders have been collected at least 200,000.

Including subsidies, the car in the US starts at $40,000.

Telegram Premium is getting closer the messenger will no

Since its global launch, the Telegram messenger has positioned itself as a “free forever” product. This message appeared when installing the program on Android. More precisely, the slogan was: “Telegram is free forever. Without advertising. No subscription fees.” But now it looks like things are about to change.

Telegram Premium is getting closer - the messenger will no longer be “free forever”

Developer Alessandro Paluzzi said that the text of the slide has changed in the section with translations for the client applications of the messenger. Now it looks like this: “Telegram offers free unlimited cloud storage for chats and media files.” Although there has been no official statement from the developers so far, it can be assumed that this is preparation for the launch of Telegram Premium.

In the fall of 2021, advertising appeared in the messenger: ads began to be displayed in large channels and groups. Premium features were also previously announced: in particular, paid account holders will receive a special badge next to their name, full-screen emojis and some other features will be available to them.

Thus, Telegram plans to improve the monetization of the product.

It seems that Apple may at least nominally introduce its mixed reality headset in the near future.

A brand new Apple product could be unveiled in a week.  The company registers the trademark realityOS

Shortly before the WWDC 2022 event, which starts in a week, two company applications for the registration of the realityOS trademark were discovered on the Web at once. Recall that this will be the name of the operating system for the Apple headset.

These applications were filed back in December, but the important thing is that they have a foreign filing deadline – the date by which an applicant must file a foreign patent application in order to claim an earlier domestic patent application – June 8th. That is, two days after WWDC. That is, it is very likely that it is at WWDC 2022 that the Cupertino giant will for the first time tell something about its headset, or at least its OS.
