What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Don't let your identity or images get stolen online.

We provide a convenient and easy way to protect your online identity by combining web spidering DMCA software, image and facial recognition, and artificial intelligence.

Image identity theft is an ever increasing problem in today's online social environment. We've found that over 30% of all the profiles on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and general dating sites are fake. There are over a quarter Billion fake accounts and people out there online today. The problem is: that's just how many fake accounts exist on Facebook alone. There is another quarter to half a Billlion fake accounts across dating sites, chat boards, and other social media sites. These fake profiles lead to not only other hackings, but false products, misleading information, and fake news. These also allow for more extreme long term negative effects such as opening up social hacking or social engineering.  Facechex mitigates and stops the spread of fake profiles once detected.

You may be asking: Where do those fake profiles come from? ...You

That's right, from you, or your loved ones, your children, your mother, your sister, your brother, your father, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, or your other dear friends.  FaceChex won't protect against just fake profiles, we'll be able to eliminate several things including, but definitely not limited to, fake profiles, and more importantly illegal images of children, and worse intrusions.
The reason image and identify theft are so prevalent is because it doesn't require someone to hack you, talk to you, or even interact with you at all. With the advent of social media you can be anyone. You could download someone's entire image history and pretend to be that person online. The more egregious acts are the ones we hear about like someone getting hacked, or personal info put on a risque website or other undisclosed sites, but millions of fake profiles are created without any hacking necessary. A user just saves an image, then uses a name off of a public profile. Instantly a new identity is created.


It Doesn't get more Personal than this!

If you haven't had your images stolen or identity, then you're lucky. Cyber intrusions are up more than 1000% in the last 5 years. The ease of scripts online and technology to hack someone have increased. Facechex is very near and dear to our hearts. Why? Because our founder/owner had someone close to them be hacked and put up on the revenge site Isanyoneup. You may remember that site from the infamous Charlotte Laws case and if you don't, please check out her book, Rebel in High Heels. It's about a mother whose world was rocked when private images of her daughter were stolen off of her computer and posted online. It happened to us as well and that is part of the point of the Facechex project. By helping to eliminate fake profiles, we can help prevent and eliminate incidences like those that affected both us and Charlotte Laws. In the not so distant future, we can use that same technology to eliminate Child images from being posted online as well.

Be careful out there.

There are a lot of people out there who will try to steal your content and use it for their own profit. If you don't defend yourself who knows where it could be used? Defend yourself and your family with FaceChex.

Feel safe with FaceChex.

Control over your content is important to you. We live in a world where identities are stolen, images are misused, and social media can be dangerous. With FaceChex you can feel safe knowing that your content is being protected and you are, in turn, protecting others. And it's controlled by you and only you.

Technology meets legal firepower.

At FaceChex we use the latest technology to monitor the global Internet for your content. Our technology is backed up by legal firepower to take action. Sleep easy. If someone tries to use your stuff, we're on it. Fast.

We created the website, Facechex.com. The spidering technology and indexing of content is already created and has been in operation for 5 years now under DMCAForce.  We are improving the spidering, indexing, artificial intelligence, and including image and facial recognition. We are ready to market via email marketing, and about 6000 internet marketers, business owners and influencers are ready to push it.

How does it work?

Facechex.com utilizes the DMCAForce copyright protection software. We currently protect the identities and brands of 400+ entertainment clients from piracy around the world with our company, DMCAForce. We also have an audio and video recognition software component which identifies the origin of content through audio and video. The Audio and Video recognition has been operational for 3 years now and has over 30M videos indexed, adding on image recognition has been possible for many years, but it is only this year that it has been cost effective enough to launch this on a global scale. The DMCAForce technology has the power to go out and search the internet, using our proprietary spiders, for your name or profile. We search various sites known for piracy or that we've collected over the years in our database. Facechex will do the same, mainly focusing on social media sites, Dating Sites like Yourdatelink.com/Match.com, and then more nefarious sites like revenge sites and heaven forbid escorts/hookup sites.

Cheaters and Age Detector:

In addition to the above uses for detecting duplicate profiles, and to create an awareness for where your images are being used or misused, Facechex can also be used for identifying if your spouse or significant other has a second social media profile and if they're active on dating sites. This provides a way to detect cheating. We can not only identify a match, but we can also use our spiders and scraping technology for when someone was last online and whether they are active or not.
We can tell things like the Age of the person, which is very beneficial in determining the unauthorized use of images of children. This is key in protecting your children and stopping the distribution of child pornography.

Existing DMCAForce Technology:

DMCAForce protects authors, musicians, publishers, online performers, software developers, film makers, models, YouTube personalities, entertainers and designers, and many more. To find out more about our core technology watch this video or visit DMCAForce.com.

What happens next?

Through April 2018, we are continuing to cast and hire developers, designers, and focus on fundraising and marketing. We have an internal team already working with high profile clients, but we want this campaign to be just for the consumers out there, the moms and dads, the girlfriends and boyfriends, the sisters and brothers, and the neighbors and friends.

We have the spiders done, name, audio, and video indexing and searching operational, and we are adding on more sites weekly. We will be utilizing the funds raised through this campaign to connect our name, audio and video recognition with image recognition and facial recognition. The image recognition will allow us to not only look for names, audio and video, but we'll have the ultimate complete solution of images as well. We plan to communicate this to our contributors monthly on our progress, and as we approach launch in January 2018. We will then finalize our team and begin rolling out, advertising across social media, dating, and other platforms.

How much do we need?

We absolutely need fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) for the project to incorporate a third party image recognition software. However if we want to build our own and more advanced Image recognition technology, we need $400,000 to $500,000 to be fully funded and not boot strapped.

After that, it will be 100% marketing. Our marketing strategy includes leveraging our existing internet marketer database of over 6000 active advertisers, who are active on Facebook and other social media advertising programs, by offering them an incentive program. We have several programs and community groups, both US-based and global, that we are working with such as Charlotte Laws, ASACP and others that we wish to get involved. It all begins with our loyal base of current clients which is over 1,000 now with DMCAForce and the good people choosing to believe in us and invest from Kickstarter.

We hope to have your support in combating the theft of identity, images, and distribution of these online.

Risks and challenges

With the technology space there is always a risk of users not liking the product or not wanting it. We, however, have already proven successful with our DMCAForce product, and simply would like to speed up our Facechex goals.
Our challenges right now involve time and a cost effective image recognition solution in order to have a wide net of coverage for our users. Indexing all of Facebook's public images, for example, is an immense undertaking we plan to cover. This is why we would want the full $500k, if possible, in the near future. The server costs involved, which we have a roadmap for reducing, is what becomes our largest challenge. The better our technology gets the more cost effective it will be.
Our initial product launch to cover the more nefarious sites is very achievable and we have already cataloged a lot of the sites into our system. FaceChex will provide a great service to the world.
Further expansion and adoption by users are the main risks and challenges we have. The others are technology and cost-based which we can overcome with your help. Cost-based meaning before adding on users we have to spider and ingest Billions of images from around the world on various sites.
