Russian Face Recognition App Took Country by Storm

FindFace is an app launched just 2 months ago, and it is already taking Russia by storm, allowing to photograph people in a crowd and find out their identities with 70% reliability. If its founders get their way, it may end anonymity in public.


The face recognition app works by comparing photos to profile pictures on VK, the most popular social network in Russia and the former Soviet Union, accounting for more than 200 million users. Its founders predict a world where people walking past you on the street could find your social network profile, and shops or the police could also track you down via social networks.

So far, the app has amassed 500,000 users and processed about 3m searches. Its founders, two young Russian men, explain that unlike other technology, their algorithm allows quick searches in big data sets. This algorithm allows to search through a billion pictures in less than a second. In result, you’ll get the most likely match to the requested face and 10 people it thinks look similar.

The founders of the app believe that it could revolutionize dating, as you can photograph a person you like in the public place, then find their identity through the app and send them a friend request. However, there were also concerns about the potentially disturbing implications – for example, the app was used by a St. Petersburg photographer to snap and identify people on the city’s metro. The app creators said that in theory, their app can work with any photographic database. But in practice, their technology can’t use Facebook, because even the public photos there are stored in a way that is hard to access.

At the same time, FindFace is believed to be just a shop window for the technology. Although there is a paid function for users willing to make more than 30 searches per month, this doesn’t bring much profit. The real money is expected to come from law enforcement and retail.

The app founders presented their technology to a casino chain and said they have been contacted by Russian police, who started loading suspect or witness photos into the app and came up with results. They are also ready to sign a contract with Moscow city government to work with the network of CCTV cameras around the city. In case of a crime, the mugshots of anyone in the area can be uploaded into the system and matched with photos of wanted lists, court records, and even social networks.
