Default Face ID, End of Stealth?

Is there anyway to bypass the Face ID verification. My friend got it once in about 9-12 registrations

If it’s implemented for all accounts, is it over for stealth, and everyone will have one account?

Do you mean iOS FaceID verification? Or is this something else?

They're big enough to say "screw your privacy concerns, show us your face if you want to sell with us" and sellers will do it.

If this were being rolled out to all buyers that would be one thing, but a very small percentage of people on Amazon are sellers. Amazon knows that big sellers almost all already have accounts, so this would be a good time for them to start tightening things down. They already have the good sellers they want.. and even those sellers they aren't very fond of.

However even Amazon will always want new customers in the form of sellers.

I personally don't think there is ever the time where they think "we have enough sellers now". Even if they only want big sellers.

I think they are testing the water to assess the reaction.

If there is enough concern, they may shelve it.

In any event, all they want as I understand is a 5 second video. I am no technology expert, but in this day and age, there must be a way of giving them what they want...

If this is your first stealth account, wouldn't it be okay to just upload your own photo?

From what I seen it’s mandatory, how did you bypass it?

I think what he tried to say is if no webcam is detected you may perhaps be able to bypass it.

I've tested it without a browser supported webcam and it errors out, but it doesn't let you skip the page

Still too early for a fix but keep at it, lets see how things go in the next few months

It sure doesn't work like that with Coinbase. You just can't pass verification until you find a cam to use.

I think it signals the end of selling on amazon soon for all 3rd party sellers except the ones that are well established. It seems amazon does not want them anymore

Not "all", just the ones trying to use made up identities to create accounts and bypass their previous suspension on Amazon. Seems like they are fed up with sellers being able to get back on so easily.

Don't get me wrong - I'm not taking their side. But it's easy to understand why they're getting fed up with banned sellers returning. It's costing them money and reputation.

I'm betting within the next 5 years their verification measures will be so stringent that it won't be possible to use a stealth account on Amazon in any way. Amazon is a big enough force within the USA to have legislation custom crafted just for them, and that's probably what will end up happening. Sooner than later all of this stealth stuff will be made illegal.

Correct me if I'm wrong but it's illegal to have anyone else's identity information used.

Yeah, that's wrong. Every company you've ever dealt with online is storing your identifying information.
