The problems with verification of profiles are:
- manual verification requires humans to inspect pics and check they're not fake. That would be massively expensive
- automatic verification has technical limitations that can be worked around
- govt id based verification infringes on privacy, and would require local differences in the app
There's probably a machine-learning solution to some of this. A one time code handwritten on an uploaded photo that is never used on a profile could be read by a trained neural net.
