App allows anybody to snap a photo of a passerby and discover their real name — with 70% reliability

From MarketWatch:

250 million video surveillance cameras have been installed throughout the world, and chances are you’ve been seen by several of them today. We leave our “faceprints” everywhere we go.

FindFace app allows anybody to snap a photo of a passerby and discover their real name — with 70% reliability. What’s particularly unsettling are the use cases the app creators advocate: identifying strangers to send them dating requests, helping government security agencies to determine the identities of dissenters, and allowing retailers to bombard you with advertisements based on what you look at in stores.
