Facebook is acquiring an authentication company, Confirm Inc., which no doubt, will be used to strengthen its sign-up and user safety.

...specializes in authenticating government-issued identification cards, the two companies said on Tuesday, a step that may help the social media company learn more about the people who buy ads on its network.
Facebook said in a statement Confirm’s “technology and expertise will support our ongoing efforts to keep our community safe.”
