Google facial recognition application

Google intends to lauch a quite new and sensitive product: the facial recognition app. What is this exactely doing? Well, briefly, the application can allow anyone to take a picture of an individual and based on the recorded image the Google profile information of that person can be accesed. The puzzling situation is related to the user information privacy. Google has to analyze that very carefully. Imagine that any anonymous person can get people's private data by simply using a photocamera. In order to be identified by the app, people need to check a box grant consent to Google to access their photos and profile information, said Hartmut Neven, the Google engineering director for image-recognition development.
Once there is such an option implemented and available for Google's users then the privacy arguments are considered as solved.
