…Including Your Pets

By MassPrivateI

Are you looking forward to the holiday season?

Do you want the latest in corporate advertised surveillance?

Then hurry up and be the first one in your family to purchase a $249.00 Google Clips camera that automatically identifies you and your pets.

Clips automatically chooses which moments to capture and keep, so you don’t need to be behind the camera. (Source)

Because nothing says Big Brother like a camera that automatically identifies everyone it takes pictures of.

Google uses facial recognition to spy on you and your pets

The Google store warns that Clips can recognize familiar faces and pets…

Google Clips is smart enough to recognize great expressions, lighting and framing. So the camera captures beautiful, spontaneous images. And it gets smarter over time. Google Clips learns to recognize familiar faces. The more you’re with someone, the more it learns to capture clips of them. It can also pick out pets like cats or dogs.

How can Clips recognize you and your pets?

For years, Google has warned people that they use pattern and facial recognition to identify everyone. But Clips takes it a step further and uses machine-learning technology to identify everyone. (Click here to find out more about Google’s facial recognition.)

Google claims Clips was designed with privacy safeguards…

We know privacy and control really matter, so we’ve been thoughtful about this for Clips users, their families, and friends. (Source)

How thoughtful has Google been? And why should anyone worry about privacy if Clips isn’t connected to the Internet?

Google Photos can reproduce or modify your pictures

Google Clips tells users to download their pictures to Google Photos, which gives Google permission to modify your pictures, make compilation videos of them and much more.

Once a user has downloaded their pictures to Google Photos, they can kiss their privacy goodbye as their Terms of Service states.

When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works… (Source)

Business Insider warns that Google can recognize people’s faces taken years apart and identify the brand of clothing you’re wearing. An article in Newsend warns that Google Photos is creating a valuable profile of every user for advertising purposes.

If you’re concerned about your privacy, buy a digital camera that lets you to upload your pictures to your laptop without a corporation spying on you.

  1. Thanks Ole,
    the guy who did our 50th class reunion in July posted old photos of me from Facebook against my authorization; he worked for Us Air Force. I was very upset as it is now posted on Youtube by one of our teachers.
    anyway, wanted to tell you that I loved the way you did your podcast with chip with the music in-between his comments about various questions; it was easy to digest and very calming at the same time!
    I’m currently watching Bernhart, he’s great; I can’t go in Nov. but it looks great. I work with Alan Oken for consciousness and have for years.
    With chip’s tape I had a hard time accessing tape 2; I signed up for a year. Who do I see for that?
    I’m assuming you aren’t coming in my direction in Oct or Nov?
    Many blessings in Light and Love, Janet
