The facial recognition is on the rise. Despite coming with a promise to make our lives easier, it is posing a real threat to our privacy. The surveillance technology, however, has now revealed its soft spots.

When Facebook and Apple used the system to tag photos of its users, most were fine with it, but when Amazon started using facial recognition in their store, it became physical. Now, even KFC China is trying to make a library of its customers to guess what they want. Next time a mid aged woman will step into their parlour, she might be offered porridge and soy bean milk for breakfast. The privacy advocates are on their toes, but rest assured the technology is not without flaws. The program has already successfully been tricked with funky makeup and counter surveillance clothes.

For those who do not want to walk around wearing Ziggy Stardust like makeup or shirt full of printed faces, Pittsburg University researchers came up with yet another solution. Putting on a pair of wild patterned glasses successfully hides from the Big Brother.
