A few days ago, I read with dismay that Google is developing a “face recognition app”. How can we risk having all our contact details and other information accessible with only a picture of our face taken?
However, today, Google denied that they are developing such an application, as was first reported by CNN. But even when Google is denying these plans because they claim to not have strong privacy protection in place yet, CNN is standing by their report, and they have an audio recording of the interview with a Google engineer.
Whether Google is coming out with such a facial recognition application or not, it’s scary, isn’t it, if it’s available? What do you think?
