Facial Recognition tech already exists and is rapidly spreading worldwide. CCTV cameras are already ubiquitous and just need to be hooked up to programs that instantly analyse and compare with millions of database photos often harvested from social media.What can your face say about you?
Face recognition technology can pick our ID from hundreds of millions and link to all aspects of our lives
Another step in total social control and personal marketing.. But there are lots of fun ways to block, deceive, avoid or simply smash this fabulous technology.. below we list a few..
The state of New York has privately asked surveillance companies to pitch a vast camera system that would scan and identify people who drive in and out of New York City, according to a December memo obtained by Vocativ. As big brother tactics continue to creep quietly into Americans’ everyday lives, here are six ways to dodge biometric verification…
New York City wouldn’t be the first in the U.S. to have a network of facial recognition cameras for law enforcement. In 2013, for instance, the Los Angeles Police Department admitted it had deployed 16 cameras equipped with face recognition software, designed to search for particular suspects.
6 Ways to Dodge FACE CONTROL
Here are some things you can do, and keep in mind to help lower your signature:
- Wear sunglasses during the daylight hours…breaking up the potential to photograph your eyes, the way they are set into your face, and any eye movements that might give away what you are doing (what you’re getting ready to do).
- Wear a hat, especially one that covers up the ears. Baseball caps are fine, but they really focus on the ears – their shape and proximity to the side of your head – for identification purposes. The caps also bust up the curvature of your head and also hide the hair and hair patterns.
- Wear scarves, turtlenecks, and other clothing such as balaclavas to break up the outline of the neck.
- Gloves: hide the hands, your marital status, and scars, fingernails, or other prominent features…even the fingerprints can be photographed.
- Layered clothing: yes, this is great to protect from the cold, but I’ll give you another reason to wear it. The Doctrine of Contrasting Colors. For a “real-time” view of this look no further than the movie “The Recruit” with Colin Farrell and Al Pacino. Farrell escaped from his pursuers by shedding the outer layer of his clothing and reversing the jacket. You can do the same. Make the green sweatshirt disappear when the need arises with a change to a tan polypro top with a zippered neck.
- Rule of Thumb: “When the Need Arises.” Yes, you can pack yourself a small “kit” with darker-toned makeup/lighter-toned makeup such as skin cream, and also hats of various types different from the ones you normally use. A wig may be a quick fix to turn your hair from brown to blonde. There are also movie supply sites you can visit that will sell you real mustaches actually made from human hair. Sound stupid? It won’t if you use it and it keeps you out of a cell. This measure is for when it’s really hitting the fan…not for “day to day” activities.
Another big problem to overcome with all of this surveillance is the fact that most people have their constantly clicking and snapping little phone-cameras to take pictures of every single thing on the planet within their “biome,” and it’s these individuals who serve as “silent witnesses” to help the surveillance state gather as much info as they can.
In addition, let’s not forget that every photo you post, twitter, place on Facebook, or download in any capacity does indeed become “scarfed up” by the US government. That $50-billion-dollar facility in Utah wasn’t built to help out Olan Mills with their photography work.
Be aware, and not just of others but of yourself. Reduce the “footprint” you put out by learning where the cameras are where you work and on your trips back and forth to your house. Disable the little camera-dot on the top edge of your laptop with 2 layers of aluminum HVAC duct tape pieces. Disable the microphone within it as well. Bottom line: you have to pull security for yourself and on yourself to reduce the chances of them cataloguing your every move. Don’t give them what they need to build up their files.
In the US Martial law is always just around the corner, waiting to be inflicted on us. These are techniques you’ll have to incorporate into your daily routine and they’ll take some practice.
Awareness and the ability to act on what is happening around you are the keys you’ll need to be able to make it all work. We’d like to hear any suggestions you have on the matter that may work for others. Keep fighting that good fight, and don’t forget those cameras!
