LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Soon, you might be able to pay for your Amazon order with a selfie.

The company filed a patent application for the technology Wednesday. 

Amazon says the process would be more secure than traditional passwords.

Facial recognition would ensure you are an actual customer and a security system would require you to blink or smile when taking the picture.
