AVG Creates Privacy Glasses To Prevent Auto-Tagging
One of the features that has popped up on social media over the years is the concept of tagging photographs. In fact, some sites offer up automatic tagging features that use facial recognition to identify anyone in a photograph. While users have the ability to turn off the tag, many simply do not know about the feature or have no idea when they are accidentally being photographed. One company has found a solution that just might catch on.
Whether or not the technology will be implemented into some sort of widely available solution remains to be seen, but the fact that at least one company has made significant strides in keeping unwanted photographs from instantly recognizing everyone involved is a major win for privacy advocates said Zeca Oliviera. The downside is that the picture remains on the internet, but that represents another problem altogether.
