Facial recognition technology today is not only used for security purposes by government or commercial agencies. Product designers use it in every sphere – transportation, health, and marketing. AI filters are viral on social media apps.

In this blog, I will list some good facial recognition apps to make you aware of the different contexts in which this technology is used.

6 Innovative Facial Recognition Apps.


It is an enterprise conducting independent research on artificial intelligence and face recognition technology. They have created many fun face recognition apps for the mass audience-YouMask Beards, Age-O-Meter, BabyMaker, LiveFacialFeatures, etc. These apps use facial recognition algorithms to augment a virtual beard, tell your age, make a baby face using a parent’s picture, or display facial features.

Luxand offers FaceSDK, a cross-platform library for building face recognition software. The SDK provides APIs to detect facial expressions, detect faces on multiple images, videos, and thermal images, recognise faces with masks, support IP (Internet Protocol), cameras, etc. It also includes a Track API, through which faces can be identified in videos as well. Some of the APIs are:

  • Avatar API
  • E-cards API
  • Baby Prediction API
  • Face Aging API
  • Zombie API
  • Face Enhancement API

You can start with the free trial and get a quote for the paid version. Luxand serves many companies, including Samsung, LG, Ford, National Forensic Service, etc.

Like – Extensive APIs, Accurate face recognition even in videos.


A private company founded by Hoan Ton-That provides facial recognition software to law enforcement and commercials that need high-security like banking, airport, visitor management, etc.

The company claims that its software has 99% accuracy for all demographics. Its AI system is trained on a gigantic database. However, this is quite controversial as the company used almost 3 billion photos from the web and social media without people’s consent. More worrisome was that law enforcement agencies were using this potent neural network even when the policy states that no unsupervised repository can be used as a reference for any facial recognition software.

Though Federal, State & Local authorities have many successful stories of how Clearview’s advanced technology reduced their investigation time and helped them crack down on criminals.

Some of its features that are helpful for commercial use are:

  • Bias-free algorithm.
  • Algorithms are tested by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
  • Its algorithm ranked top in the US and western countries among 650 algorithms.
  • Provides accurate results on low-quality images and detects faces covered with masks.
  • It is affordable and has straightforward pricing.

Like – Accuracy, Bias-free facial recognition software.

Dislike – Obscurity over the vast database and connections with the law enforcement.


If you want to edit your photos instantly, then FaceApp’s editing features powered by AI won’t disappoint you. You can have fun with its filters which under the hood use facial recognition technology to swap genders, augment hairstyles, show how your kids would look, there are many celebrity look-alike apps, you can try.

Currently, the app provides 60+ filters and has a pleasant and easy-to-use UI. Its ‘Old filter’ went viral in social media apps. 500 million+ people have used FaceApp, and both App Store and Google Play Store awarded it as the Top App in 2019.

But all the pro features are not free. Many users are frustrated by the ads in the free version as quite often, even after watching the whole ad, they cannot use a specific AI filter.

Like – Clarity over what private data is collected. The data is encrypted, and you can also request to delete it.

Dislike – Expensive. The free version has long ads. Moreover, the ads don’t necessarily load; sometimes, filters don’t get unlocked after viewing an ad.

IObit Applock

A fine lightweight app to enhance the security of your device. You can lock specific face recognition apps or settings to protect your sensitive data from abusers. It is handy in preventing children from accidentally deleting critical data or making in-app purchases. Sometimes notifications contain private information which you don’t want to share with someone when they are around. With this app, you can lock notifications too.

The facial recognition system of this app checks on who is trying to unlock your phone and sends their image if they enter a password incorrectly more than three times.

Like – Lightweight. Does what it markets.

Dislike – Only for android.


It is an advance and comprehensive app for phenotyping used by licensed health professionals.
With deep learning and biometric technology, syndrome-specific classifiers are created. The patient’s face is converted into a mathematical faceprint using proprietary face technology software compared to the classifiers to find any morphological disorders.

Face2Gene’s team has built a highly collaborative forum for doctors and health professionals to give constructive clinical feedback. You can access the library connected with the London Medical database for just 10 dollars per month. Some users include CookCholdren’s, Cleveland Clinic, Duke Medicine, Mayo Clinic, etc.
