What should I do when facial recognition fails?

To make face recognition work successfully, here are some tips:

  1. Ensure good lighting: Use the app in a well-lit area. Good lighting can significantly improve the accuracy of facial recognition.
  2. Face the camera directly: Position yourself so that you are facing the camera directly. Avoid tilting your head or facing away from the camera.
  3. Remove obstructions: Ensure that your face is not obstructed by items like sunglasses, hats, or masks.
  4. Maintain a neutral facial expression and follow on-screen instructions: Keep a neutral face and adhere to any guidelines displayed on the screen during the recognition process. This helps improve accuracy and efficiency.
  5. Update the Salmon app: Make sure you are using the latest version of the app, as updates often include improvements to facial recognition technology.
  6. Check internet connection: A stable internet connection is crucial for real-time processing, especially if the recognition is done server-side.
  7. Clean camera lens: A dirty lens can blur the image. Wipe your camera lens clean for a clear picture.

If you've tried these steps and still face issues, it's often helpful to restart the app or your device. This can resolve many common technical glitches that can happen with facial recognition.
