Recently, Facebook announced that it has a new way to recognize your face in photos without your permission. This feature could get a lot people in trouble who get caught in embarrassing pictures and raises issues of privacy rights.
Now, with the acquisition of facial-recognition startup, “Face-dot-com,” Facebook may soon make it easier for mobile phone users to tag people.
But there is a way that you can keep Facebook from recognizing your face.
First log onto Facebook and select Privacy Settings. Click on “timeline and tagging” and choose the last option: “who sees tag suggestions when photos that look like you are uploaded.” From the drop down menu, choose “No One.” On a mobile device, the process is similar.
Even though it takes a few extra steps to opt out from this feature, it’s the best way to stop others from being able to tag you in pictures.
