"Banks and credit agencies check my identity by asking me things only I could know."

Like your mother's maiden name and your first pet? Facial recognition, especially by a third party, doesn't seem like the best idea, but that doesn't mean there isn't a problem that needs solving. The reason so many different ideas keep being tried out is that verifying identity is a really tricky problem, and none of the solutions we've come up with so far are all that great.
