EVERY TIME YOU UPLOAD A PHOTO ONLINE, YOUR DATA IS EXPLOITED. FACESHIELD HAS THE SOLUTION.

FAST + POWERFUL + FREE

Faceshield is an Instagram-like filter you can apply to your photos that blocks face detection online. It adds noise to specific regions of your face such as eyes, nose or jaw line to 'fool' the face detector into thinking there is no face in the photo. The photo is still recognizable, but the face detectors catastrophically fail!


Why should you care? Your facial image data is incredibly valuable and sensitive because it is key to your identity. The fear is that detailed profiles of yourself may be created if your data gets in the wrong hands. But we’re here to help.

SUBTLE

The edited image is almost identical to the original and breaks some detectors.

MEDIUM

The differences are more noticeable but it breaks many more detectors.

INTENSE

Even you can't recognize your own face, but neither can face detectors.
