    Recently started a new page on Facebook, however they asked me to verify myself by sending a picture of my self.. so i sent a picture of a T-Rex( i had to send something, it wouldn't let me log out of the app unless i did) and a day or two go by and i check and see im unblocked..... Curious on how they do the photo verification

    Funny, why did you send a T-rex picture, when Fb asked a picture of yourself, are you a T-rex? XD

    Its almost impossible bypass it, unless your Facebook Account is real.. :)

    It's an algorythm to recognize faces. Send them the same photo you have as profile pic.

    That's surprising. And you didn't get the same security check afterwards?

    @RogellParadox

    Was the pic a real picture made by you on smartphone (geolocation infromation in it, and so on), or did you take a picture from the web?

    I took the pic myself with a phone, but in order to delete metadata, I copy-pasted in an empty file and saved.
    Sorry because I forgot to mention that.

    Then this is exactly the same I did and it got proofed. A similar pic taken with my phone. So this seems to work at the moment. But I think its difficult to upscale or automate?

    I haven't dug much into this but maybe it's a simple reverse image search to see if you have copied a profile of facebook or google or something before? Maybe I should do some proper testing otherwise on how to bypass this but it hasn't been a big issue yet. Try to keep a phone number in the same country as your IP and you are OK. Also as soon as you create the account, upload a photo as profile pic. fb doesn't like profiles without picture.
    Also add a few initial friends. It could be as low as 5 friends as long as there is some.

    haha simple , make your own 50 fakes accts and as soon as possible it will ask picture verification, just verify it,, and change the accounts details to spam/business....
