Facebook users will now have to choose to activate face recognition if they want to use it to be identified in the photos posted on the social network, the platform said Tuesday. Otherwise, the feature will remain disabled by default, APA reports citing Tellerreport.

This change comes as the network giant is under pressure from institutions to better protect the privacy and data, including biometrics, of its users. Facial recognition technology automatically identifies people in photos posted on Facebook, if they are contacts of users. They can then choose to caption the photo with their names.
