But despite Facebook's efforts to communicate its updated policy clearly, some users may still be left in the dark.
The class-action suit was filedby Facebook users in IL, one of the few states with a law that requires companies to get consent from customers before collecting biometric information.
As of today, the site will let all users opt-in or out of facial recognition, providing what it calls an "easy on or off switch" for the technology. If the users do not now have the face recognition setting, then Facebook will not use face recognition to recognise them or suggest tags and the photo review will not be activated for them. The feature was first introduced in 2017, but not everyone got it at the time. If you don't have the facial recognition setting, Facebook said that it won't automatically suggest that your friends tag you in photos.
In addition to suggesting photos you might be in, opting in to face recognition also means Facebook will keep a lookout for anyone else on the service pretending to be you.

Now, and only if you pick to opt-in to Facebook's face recognition choice, Facebook will use you tips for photos you may remain in.
Almost two years ago, Facebook introduced a face recognition feature that went beyond suggesting friends to tag in pictures or videos but could let user know when they were in images they had permission to see elsewhere on the service. "Our face recognition setting lets you manage not only whether Facebook uses face recognition technology on photos of you in order to suggest tags". If you wish to turn Face Recognition OFF, you'll have two potential pathways.
Facebook's face recognition technology has been at the center of a privacy-related lawsuit since 2015. And the company said it doesn't sell its technology or share your face-recognition information with third parties.
