Do you or someone you know use the popular “Ever” photo storage app?
If so, you need to know that according to this NBC News story the company behind the app is using your photos for face recognition purposes!
The company says they’re only using their customers’ photos to “train” the app, but who knows what’s really going on behind the scenes?
It’s also why I posted this as a “warning” instead of as a “Scam Alert” (it isn’t actually a scam because users of the app agree to the odious terms when they install the app).
Bottom line: If you use the “Ever” photo storage app and you value your privacy (and the privacy of the other people in your photos), you might want to consider removing the app from your device.
And if you have any friends or relatives who use the app you might want to share this info with them so they can consider removing it as well.
