RecogniseMe is a jailbreak app developed by Apocolipse which brings biometric facial recognition security to iPhone. RecognizeMe makes use of iPhone 4’s front facing camera to allow users to unlock their iPhone using facial recognition technology for intensify security.
RecognizeMe is the first Facial Recognition security for the iPhone. Although not perfect, RecognizeMe does a pretty good job at facial recognition, given optimal conditions. RecognizeMe sits on the iPhone passcode screen, so it serves as an alternate to, rather than a replacement for the passcode.
Developer Apocolipse explain how it works:
It uses 2 different algorithms to verify, one is good for accessing 3d biometrics, the other is good at weeding out false positives based on feature? analysis, it may very well be possible to do with a picture, but I tried with a picture of myself on my Macbook Pro screen and it wouldnt go through 😛
RecognizeMe will be available on Cydia for $6.99. Well it has been submitted to Cydia and should be available shortly.
