My bank created a "new and improved" banking app asking me to take a selfie after first sending them a picture of my id.
I am already a customer of the bank, they have a copy of my id, why do they also want a selfie?
Also with the old banking app I could just call them from my phone number (which they also have) and they confirmed it was me over the phone by asking 2 questions and then provided me with a code to just enable the app on my personal phone.

    Send them a dick pic. That will show them who's boss.

    @Sid2006 I wonder what they will use it for

    To compare to id maybe? I dunno. Was this back to back with ID request?

    Mine recently told me "hey, we're upgrading our systems! All those extra safety features you love? Say goodbye!" so there's definitely shenanigans going on overall.

    @Demolishun I really hope they actually have decent software to compare my selfie with my id photo

    TBF caller IDs can be spoofed right?

    That being said a picture in modern times is not a good verification of anything either

    @Tonnoman I didn't know caller ids can be spoofed.
    How is it that picture verification (taken with a smartphone though their bank app) isn't enough though?
    Normally no one but me has access to my face

    @gitstashio yeah but others have pictures, and AI generated images are also a thing
