To help keep cyberattacks and fraudsters at bay, GCash recently launched the DoubleSafe Face ID security feature. It's an industry-first face recognition technology to ensure that the person accessing an account is the same as the one who registered in GCash.

According to the company, they have saved around 750,000 accounts after the launch of the said feature.
