Press release from: VPN Compare

Extensive research project outlines privacy concerns country by country

VPN Compare, one of the internet's oldest VPN comparison websites, has published The Ultimate Guide: Facial Recognition to educate the public on the state of facial recognition technology across the world.

This extensive research project covers the facial recognition's development to date, how it is being used by different governments and law authorities, the ethics of mass surveillance, and the latest solutions.

Privacy, data security, discrimination, safeguarding, accuracy, AI ethics, deep fakes and the risk of state abuse are some of the trends covered. The guide is divided into four main research topics:

1. All about Facial recognition
2. Facial Recognition - Pros and Cons
3. Facial Recognition - What can you do about it?
4. Facial Recognition - The Future

"This is one of our largest research projects to date. This guide explores what facial recognition is, the scale at which it is already being used around the world, and the threat it poses to individual privacy. The more we delved into the topic, the clearer the risks became and the more staggering the lack of safeguards and oversight out there," said David Spencer, News Editor at VPN Compare.

Facial recognition currently has many applications, from positive use cases such as tracking missing people, more relevant advertising and better law enforcement, however accuracy remains extremely poor and consent is a major concern. The UK's police trials of facial recognition technology achieved a 96% rate of false positives is one example (Source).

"Facial recognition and ethics is a topic that's becoming prevalent, yet public awareness is still relatively low. This is concerning considering the privacy issues it raises. We wanted to provide a comprehensive guide that brought together all the information available on this constantly evolving technology to inform the public of the latest applications and laws," concluded David Spencer, the author of the guide.
