Why is facial liveness detection important?

From Antispoofing Wiki

Facial liveness detection helps prevent a number of threats: from cybercrime to real-life attacks.

Antispoofing techniques and facial liveness detection play an important role in security and financial systems. They help prevent so-called Presentation attacks (PAs) that are initiated for the sake of gaining access to sensitive information, control options, as well as material valuables.

Threats may vary from simple money theft to hijacking vehicles remotely, money laundering or falsifying materials — like deepfake videos — that can cause social unrest.

Facial liveness detection techniques keep evolving with time, leading to highly advanced methods. They are employed widely: from business and retail to institutions such as airport terminals and police stations.
