The amount of paranoia mixed with public grandstanding sometimes surprises me regardless of the source– and I’m a big fan of paranoia. After all, if everyone is out to get you, a little paranoia is the right attitude to have.
Geoffrey Fowler in The Washington Post:
It’s going to hit the fan when the face-mapping tech that powers the iPhone X’s cutesy “Animoji” starts being used for creepier purposes. And Apple just started sharing your face with lots of apps.
No. Apple did not. But Face ID captures your face, right?
And with a little research the Post writer would have found out that none of that data can be used to identify an iPhone user. An expression? Yes. Whose expression? No. That’s not how Face ID works. The Post article goes on and on and on in a vain attempt to stir up privacy and security dust where none exists.
What’s the real problem?
We’ve already become numb to the onslaught of fake news and fake morality and fake outrage. Face ID is not near the top of the world’s problems despite Sky Is Falling scare tactics.
Apple is not sharing your face.
