Anonymous Camera: App hides your identity from video & photo

Anonymous Camera is a new camera app recently released on iOS App Store and offers anonymization of photos and videos, removing information that would otherwise identify individuals. It is her creation Playground, an London-based AI startup company. Although the application is not a solution for its protection private life, offers the most complete and easy-to-use features we've seen in an application of its kind.

Anonymous Camera blurs faces and bodies while falsifying sounds.

Anonymous Camera uses machine learning to identify people in pictures and videos and then blur, pierce or completely exclude faces or whole bodies.

The application can also be distort the voices in the videos and remove any metadata which are automatically integrated into camera and phone files. Some examples of sound metadata are the time it takes to take a photo or video and - depending on your privacy settings - where it was taken. Even if you anonymize people in photos, this information can reveal a lot, or be accidentally shared on Internet or retrieved later when analyzing a device.

The most important thing is that Anonymous Camera processes real-time content, which would not be possible. without the help of AI. This means that original videos or photos exist for a short time as the application modifies them immediately. Therefore, if someone's phone is later confiscated, the original files will not be available.

Gabriel Mitchel and Aaron Abentheuer, co-founders of Playground, report that inspired the creation of Anonymous Camera after reading reports from journalists in the United Arab Emirates about the persecution of LGBT groups.

The first user of the application is Paul Radu, a research journalist, who stated: “The app creates an almost instantaneous feeling of trust and security which is very important for users. "

The creators also stressed the main drawback of the application is its mass use. In particular, while Anonymous camera can hide the identity of a person in the shot, when there are more people in the video or photo, it seems that it does not work with the same efficiency. Playground is already testing ways to fix this error.
