Face Recognition has received a great deal of attention over the past few years and has become one of the most researched and spoken topics. It is a kind of automated biometric distinguishing approach that recognizes an individual based on their facial characteristics. The main aim of face reorganization is to implement the system for a particular face and distinguish it from a large number of stored faces with some real-time variations as well. Face recognition is in trend these days, the main reason being its efficiency and vast applications in day to day life. *Most* all the Telecom companies provide an option to unlock the phones by recognizing the face, which is a time saver and gives protection from theft as well.
