Use Someone’s Photo to Fake a Photo Verification

You can take a photo of another person and match it to the selfie photo to verify Bumble, Tinder, Badoo, or any or app.

Using someone’s image or picture for selfie verification will depend on the specific context and situation. You can fake verify effectively by making sure the image is clear and well-lit. Also, the person in the image should be facing the camera directly.

On Bumble, for example, when doing verification, the app will give certain gesture to make as you do selfie. So, one needs to be careful to trick the app because it is operated by AI 99.9%.

Our Photo Verification Findings

Face verification checks if two faces are the same using a distance metric. Apps like FaceNet turn faces into feature vectors to compare. If two faces are similar, their feature vectors should be close.

Popular apps like Bumble and Tinder use this to confirm user identities. Users snap a photo in-app, which is compared to their profile pictures.

Can we make two different face images seem the same to the system? We can tweak the feature vector or the image itself. But, turning a feature vector back to a face is tough. Also, small changes to a face might not make it look different. One way might be to guide the creation of new images in the latent space, but that’s not foolproof.

Enter StarGAN v2. It’s a tool that can create varied images in a user’s latent space. It uses reference photos to guide the creation process.

We made a test face verification system using FaceNet and DeepFace. It turns images into 128-dimensional vectors. We used a database of faces from FairFace. To check if two images are the same, we measure the distance between their vectors. If it’s below 0.7, they’re seen as the same.

Our tests showed that, except for one, all images passed in our model. We even tried making female images look male. Some passed, depending on angle and light.

In the future, we might try making images look older.

We also tried our images on Bumble and Tinder. They worked on Bumble, but Tinder caught the gender-switched ones.

How to Detect Fake Profile Photos

  • Notice any signs, billboards, or license plates to determine the location.
  • What’s the weather in the photo? Use WolframAlpha to verify if it matches the date.
  • Blurred edges on objects or people? It could be edited.
  • Is this the original photo?
  • Look at shadows. Missing or wrong shadows can be a red flag.
  • When was this photo first used? Was it before the time you’re checking?
  • Check the lighting. Inconsistencies might mean manipulation.
  • If there are multiple people, are the reflections in their eyes consistent?
  • Odd image shapes or sizes? It might have been cropped to hide details.
  • In nature, colors vary. Identical colors in large areas might mean edits.
  • Who took the photo? If you know, you might get more details from them.
  • Lastly, understand the photographer’s intent. Manipulated photos often aim to evoke strong emotions.
  • Where was it taken? Check the clothing styles and surroundings.
  • What’s the original context of the photo? Remember, real photos can be used misleadingly.
