Anonymous Camera is a newly launched app that uses machine learning to anonymize photos and videos to the point where subjects are fuly or partially blurred, or entirely silhouetted. The new iOS app from Playground was created with the aid of investigative journalists, who were seeking a way to record anonymous footage with ease. The easy-to-use app identifies people, then appropriately blurs, pixelates or blocks out a person to maintain their identity and privacy. Notably, the app is also an all-in-one solution for distorting voices, and automatically stripping embedded metadata.
Anonymous Camera is launching at a time when protests are happening in the United States and around the world, and many public venues may be implementing facial recognition technology along with thermal temperature scanning post-COVID.
