If you’re like me, you worry about how much surveillance our government has us under.
They’re spying on our phone conversations.
They’re reading our messages.
They’re tracking our movements.
And the “Big Tech” social media companies are helping them do it.
But one thing most people aren’t worrying about right now – even though they should – is facial recognition.
“Facial recog” technology is becoming more and more common, especially in the UK – and while people aren’t talking about it here right now, they really should be.
(During the protests in Hong Kong, the Communist Chinese government used facial recognition to identify and ‘disappear’ protesters, who fought back by wearing masks.)
That scares me, because it’s only a matter of time before we see this technology used more and more in our own country.
But it turns out there’s a low-tech way to defeat this type of Big Brother surveillance… and it will only cost you a couple bucks!
The 4-Dollar Trick That Defeats Facial Recog
There are 30 million surveillance cameras in the United States, according to one report.
Disturbing as that is, it’s NOTHING compared to the per-capita number of cameras in the UK.
But citizens in the UK, tired of Big Brother spying on them all the time, have decided to do something about it.
They’re painting their faces.
That’s right: They’re creating patterns of lines and geometric blocks on their faces, which interferes with the ability of facial recog to clock them and compare them to a database.
The group in the UK calls itself the “Dazzle Club,” a reference to “Computer Vision Dazzle”.
“You’re trying to obscure the natural highlights and shadows on your face,” a member of the Dazzle Club told the outlet Vice in the UK. “Cameras will reduce you down to pixels. They’ll pick up the bridge of your nose, your forehead, your cheekbones, your mouth and chin. So you have to flatten your face and obscure it.”
In other words, all it takes to throw a wrench into the bazillion-dollar tech industry’s surveillance state…
…is a four-dollar camouflage makeup kit.
(We even recommended, years back now, that you put one of these in your bug-out bags and survival kits so you could use it for disguise – so you might already have one!)
Now, if you weren’t worried about facial recognition before, that’s okay.
I wasn’t worried about it either, until I started investigating these infringements on our freedoms and our privacy.
But this type of technology is not the ONLY way that “Big Tech” and “Big Brother” spy on you, steal your data, and use it against you.
I know, because…
I did my own research.
I talked to digital experts (skip-tracers, hacking experts, federal whistleblowers, Constitutional attorneys, etc.).
And I was SHOCKED at what I discovered!
But then I took action…
Based on these cyber-security experts’ advice, I deleted certain apps on my phone… I learned how to put a “force-field” around my phone and computer… how to be “invisible” when I buy gear and supplies online… and I even learned how to actually USE information they collect against them to take back control of what they see!
And trust me, even though I have a website and “online stuff”, I am NOT a “tech-savvy” dude by any stretch of the imagination!
In other words, if I can do it, you can do it.
It’s a step-by-step guide to protecting yourself from the “all-seeing eye” of Big Brother.
In other words, it explains, in language anybody can understand, just how you can STOP Big Tech and Big Brother from poking around in your business.
Look… none of us wants to be under surveillance, right?
But it’s up to US – you and me – to protect our movements, our freedom, and our data, especially with our government, these giant tech companies, and even hackers and online criminals looking to snoop into our lives.
Don’t take this lightly.
The threat to your information and your identity is only going to get worse, and you and I need to change the way we do things to stay off Big Tech’s radar.
It’s not hard, but you do need to start now.
We all need to be extra careful these days, you know?
