Google’s Face Match Employs Facial Recognition

googleGoogle has introduced Face Match, a new facial recognition technology that is a part of Google Nest Hub Max.

The technology uses a front-facing camera for video calls and access to your personal data. So for instance, you can access your photos, texts and your calendar when it scans and recognizes your face.

The company said it was not a security feature and may accidentally open if a family member that looks like you scans their face or even a photo of you might work.

The company did not say how it would store the data or if it would use the information for marketing or customer profiling.
