As a form of ‘Compromise’, not like a form of ‘Resistance’ like ‘CV Dazzle’, two typical corporations: YouTube and Google have had endeavours to protect faces. They launched a function to blur faces to keep ‘Visual Anonymity’.
In 2012, YouTube uploaded a post with a title ‘Face blurring: when footage requires anonymity’. Some sentences inform us of their key aim of the service.
“Whether you want to share sensitive protest footage without exposing the faces of the activists involved, or share the winning point in your 8-year-old’s basketball game without broadcasting the children’s faces to the world, our face blurring technology is a first step towards providing visual anonymity for video on YouTube.”
“Because human rights footage, in particular, opens up new risks to the people posting videos and to those filmed, it’s important to keep in mind other ways to protect yourself and the people in your videos.”
These systems show us how privacy and personal identity are significant.
