A new patent from Amazon has today been revealed, set to allow you to purchase products by taking a selfie, making the process of confirming your purchase faster, and easier.

When you are going to make a purchase, Amazon’s app will ask you to frame your face in the app with the front-facing camera, it will then use special facial recognition technology to confirm it is actually you.

This will cut the difficult and annoying process of typing in your password on a small screen.

To combat this, a lot of people save their password on their smartphone, however, as Amazon notes, this is not very secure and a selfie can work a lot better for this.

As of yet, this is just a patent, and we may never see the feature in real life.

That said, it is very likely. You can read more about it at the source link below.
