X Targets Impersonation, Introduces ID Verification

x id verification

X, which is run by Elon Musk, is getting better at fighting identity theft. Because people keep trying to pretend to be someone else, the company is now making a new ID verification tool. App expert Nima Owji said that users will have to show a copy of their government-issued ID and a selfie to prove they are who they say they are.

The new feature is made possible by a partnership with a third-party company called Au10tix.1 7

Google and PayPal also use Au10tix’s identification intelligence services. Both X and Au10tix will keep the information shared, and biological data will be kept for up to 30 days.

This is a big step toward stopping people from impersonating others on the app, but it won’t be easy. The current verification system, which gives confirmed status to people who pay for X Premium, has some flaws that scammers have taken advantage of. It’s still not clear if this new plan will fully solve the problems or not.

The partnership with Au10tix and the ways X is using show that it is serious about improving user security. It offers a faster verification process and maybe a more real online environment, but only time will tell if it lives up to its full potential.

The fact that X and Au10tix don’t respond to comments makes this feature more mysterious and keeps users and experts wondering what this could mean for the future of online security and community trust on the platform.
