China's Tencent turns to facial recognition to root out late-night child gamers

 

 

Chinese tech giant Tencent has ดาวน์โหลด slotxo rolled out a facial recognition "midnight patrol" function to snag children masquerading as adults to get around a government curfew on underage gamers.

 

China bans people under 18 from playing online games between 10pm and 8am, part of a raft of rules introduced to weed out the excesses of gaming culture among the youth, from worsening eyesight to online addiction.

 

But many young players have navigated the restrictions by using gaming accounts registered by adults.

 

Online gaming giant Tencent this week moved to close those loopholes by implementing facial verification checks on anyone playing with an adult ID after the curfew.

 

Tencent also said that it would start requiring users to pass a facial recognition test when changing safety settings designed to let parents limit their children's game usage, as "some children have stolen their parents' phones" to modify the settings.

 

"Kids, put your phones away and go to sleep," the company said in a social media post on Tuesday.

 

The new functions will initially be used on around 60 mobile games, including the massively popular Honor of Kings multiplayer battle game, which boasts more than 100 million daily users.
