What is FaceCheck?

FaceCheck is an investigative search engine that allows you to search the Internet using a photo of a face. The search result will show you links to webpages on the Internet where we have seen the face of this person or people who look similar.

How Does FaceCheck Work?

FaceCheck uses proprietary artificial intelligence technology to detect faces, measure similarity between faces, and efficiently search large amounts of data.

What's the Number on Top of a Search Result?

The match quality score ranges from 0 to 100 and indicates how closely the face matches. 100 means the exact same photo was found. A score of 83 could indicate the same person from a different angle in a different environment.

There are 4 color coded groups
  • 90 to 100 Certain Match
  • 83 to 89 Confident Match
  • 70 to 82 Uncertain Match
  • 50 to 69Weak Match

Usually, a score of 83 and higher indicates good reliable match. This is only true if you upload a quality photo that shows an unobstructed face.

What are Red Flags?

Red Flags are warning indicators that appear above search results when an image matches a photo found on news, adult content, escort services, sex offender registries, mugshots, scam reporting sites, or most wanted criminals lists with a confidence score of 83 or higher. They quickly alert users to potential risks associated with these images, enhancing safety and awareness.

Do you Provide a Positive Identity Match?

FaceCheck provides a match quality score. No matter how sophisticated the AI algorithm is, a computer can’t establish a guaranteed identity match based on low-quality internet photos of people in varying poses and lighting conditions. Since many unrelated people look alike (doppelganger effect), always use other supporting data when making a judgment call. Also, remember that scammers often use photos of innocent people online.
