After the conflict with VKontakte, the service for searching people by photographs Searchface restarted under the name FindClone, adding mandatory authorization via the social network. Upon learning of this, the VKontakte administration blocked the site, TJournal reports.
Now, when trying to switch to FindClone from a social network, a warning about phishing is displayed, and the service itself does not work due to the impossibility of users entering through a VK account. The developers promise to solve this problem in the near future by means of alternative authorization methods.
According to representatives of VKontakte, FindClone grossly violated the rules of the social network and therefore lost access to the platform. With any services using user data without their consent, the company is ready to fight “with the help of technical and legal measures.”
