Facebook Smart Glass Raises Privacy Concerns
Interestingly, Facebook has said that privacy has been taken care of while making smart glasses. But how? The company has declared an LED light in the mirror to know whether your glass is recording photos or videos.
Does the camera have a physical shutter? Of course not. If Facebook wants, the camera of these glasses will also record you, and the LED light will not even light up. It’s simple; the one who made it has most of the control.
Facebook has said that the company will store the users who give voice commands to the glasses. It will be kept in store for review. That is, what questions have you answered? This store will remain, and Facebook knows this. However, you can opt-out of it. But this is optional.
Buzzfeed News reporter Katie has said that she could take pictures and videos of others by covering the LED lights in the glasses. He has described this glass of Facebook as a spyglass.
Because this glass looks like regular glasses to see, its light is also not very visible. The Wall Street Journal reporter recorded 20 people, and they were not even aware that someone was recording them.
Where will the recording data go?
The data will somehow reach Facebook, and the company will use it to earn money. Not only to make money but if this data falls into the wrong hands, even a person’s life can be ruined.
There are users through Facebook to earn money. The company makes money by selling user data for advertising. The kind of revenue model of the company, most of the money comes from advertising.
Whether your life is easier with smart glasses or not, Facebook will get the full opportunity to interfere in your life. Even if the company makes a million arguments about privacy, but the truth is that Facebook is such a company that affects the American election from a commoner.
Privacy could have been ensured if this glass was not made like standard glass. The look of the glass could be changed. Not only this, the camera given in this glass should have had some way to cover it. For example, many intelligent displays have a shutter to protect their cameras.
Privacy experts also believe that this intelligent glass of Facebook raises many questions about privacy because these glasses can be used comfortably to spy on someone.
Seeing the kind of history Facebook has, you should not be surprised how the company can use its products. What is the attitude of Facebook regarding the privacy of users? It is not hidden from anyone.
