New Detection Techniques Against is a very useful tool when it comes to generating realistic artificial identities, especially for social media profile pictures. However, we have found a flaw in its implementation of StyleGAN2 which allows to detect with 100% accuracy whether a profile was generated by ThisPersonDoesNotExist or not.

This technique is combined with a deep learning model to make it resistant against transformations such as cropping, flipping, or strong jpg compression, and show that it maintains very high accuracy.

Our method also allows to recover the timestamp at which the image was generated; this is useful to find profile pictures generated within a few seconds of each other (which are likely to belong to the same person).

To implement this detection, we have developed FADA, a web-based open-source tool implementing the three techniques mentioned above. Since FADA requires significant computing power, it will also be hosted on our servers and free of use by anyone to help their OSINT investigations.
