Good News: IBM Quits Facial Recognition Technology and Amazon Pauses It πŸ‘

Hi Everyone,

In positive news for all of our privacy, this week IBM announced it will no longer offer, develop, or research facial recognition technology: https://www.theverge.com/2020/6/8/21284683/ibm-no-longer-general-purpose-facial-recognition-analysis-software

Keeping the ball rolling, today Amazon announced it will temporarily stop providing its facial recognition software to police: https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/10/tech/amazon-facial-recognition-moratorium/index.html

These are both big steps in the right direction. πŸ‘ Facial recognition is a total invasion of our most personal information and poses a serious threat to our privacy. After all, you can always change a password if it becomes compromised β€” you can’t change your face. πŸŽ­

At MeWe, your face has always been your business, not ours – that’s in our Member Privacy Bill of Rights! πŸ“ƒπŸ˜Ž All the other big guys, like Facebook, Google and other web/social media companies, use this terribly invasive tech to identify, locate, and spy on you.

That’s what our famous “MeWe Salute” is all about. Your two fingers covering your eyes serve to block facial recognition and protect your privacy! πŸ”

Let’s MeWe!Β πŸ™ŒπŸ™‚πŸ₯‚
