another privacy nightmare

As many are struggling getting their data deleted or back under control, not only for author’s rights, but also for those snapshots of you that you don’t want to share – a new facial recognition app Klik launched out of beta.

Before you can even click the button to take a pic of someone, the app immediately recognizes the face, searching and tagging it, if it matches with one of your contacts or Facebook friends (if you connect it with your account). Of course it comes with a social component — users can view your friends’ photos and see the locations where those pics where taken.

Don’t bother opting out of geotagged and face recognition services or boost your privacy settings – your friends will definitely spoil your efforts.

Klik was developed by Face.com, a facial recognition software company and is available for free in the app store.
