I would use an ad blocker. I would use a password manager. I would block third-party cookies in the browser. These last three are steps that absolutely everyone should consider, because they're simple, cost little or nothing, and protect you while making your phone faster.

At least one big tech company wants a federal privacy law that is much stronger than existing state laws. Read the proposal at . Happy to answer any questions about it.

Always assume the data you're generating will be incorrect and / or fall into the wrong hands. If you don't build measures to prevent this into the design, whatever you're doing is unlawful.

Journalists: please always ask... What happens to the data? How will they affect people later? What if predictions are wrong? What are unintended consequences? ...when reporting AI and app stories

Artist Leonardo Selvaggio fooled facial recognition tech using masks, but you don't have to go that far... says, "you can confuse some facial-recognition programs by obscuring parts of your face with makeup, costuming, hairdos & infrared light."

Under the GDPR the right to object would be exercised so that it a false positive does not happen again; data protection is often experienced in the breach (i.e. something happens)

Depends on when the right to object can be enforced however. If you object after you’ve been falsely arrested, damage has already been done. One of the more disconcerting issues of facial recognition tech is how it can be employed without users being actively aware of use.

You’re kidding, right? Otherwise ditch your friends. Anyone who thinks China is the future of privacy thinks we’re doomed to a dystopian world, devoid of freedom and privacy. Reject such negative views!

Agreed. False positives for tech used by law enforcement is a HUGE deal, and a percent that high suggests the program is a failure. How many other technologies would be acceptable if they only worked 8% of the time?
