Google Glass And Nametag Present The End Of Privacy As You Knew It

The Mark of the Beast

Have you ever seen someone wearing Google Glass out at the bar? Like a real person at a real bar actually wearing Google Glass? If so, you know how absolutely ridiculous they look. Which may be the only factor we have that will stop this:

A new app will allow total strangers to ID you and pull up all your information, just by looking at you and scanning your face with their Google Glass. The app is called NameTag and it sounds CREEPY.

The “real-time facial recognition” software “can detect a face using the Google Glass camera, send it wirelessly to a server, compare it to millions of records, and in seconds return a match complete with a name, additional photos and social media profiles.”

The information listed could include your name, occupation, any social media profiles you have set up and whether or not you have a criminal record (“CRIMINAL HISTORY FOUND” pops up in bright red letters according to the demo).

And NameTag may have already added you to their database.



Two million entries have already been uploaded to Once the app officially goes live, you can sign up for NameTag and opt-out, instead of the alternative: Having to opt-in to allow them to show your information.

How is that OK?

“It’s not about invading anyone’s privacy,” one NameTag’s creators claimed (viaIndependent). “It’s about connecting people that want to be connected. We will even allow users to have one profile that is seen during business hours and another that is seen in social situations. NameTag can make the big, anonymous world we live in as friendly as a small town.”

It may not be about invading anyone’s privacy, but that sounds like what it does. And forcing people to opt-out if they want to maintain their privacy is wrong (we would go so far as to say it should be illegal). But the purported benefits of the app are almost even worse:

They continue, “It’s much easier to meet interesting new people when we can simply look at someone, see their Facebook, review their LinkedIn page or maybe even see their dating site profile. Often we were interacting with people blindly or not interacting at all. NameTag on Google Glass can change all that.” source – EOnline

  • being able to link to every account you have w/wo your approval is not acceptable under any condition. Doesnt matter if there is a viable and logical reason behind it. Wrong! Christian beware!

    Suckerberg and all the other punks running social media are developing technology using government contracts and are in cahoots with the alphabet organizations. We have absolutely zero privacy anymore because even if you don’t have a FB account, someone will undoubtedly post a picture with you in it and tag you so the only way you could maintain privacy is to have all your friends and family of the same mindset and none of you have an account. It’s a wonderful world isn’t it? You have to opt out instead of the social media being required to get your permission. Everything is being inverted these days.

    I should add that these folks are willing to sell everyone’s private information for the sake of making a dollar. I never really understood “the love of money is the root of all evil” until the last few years.

  • you woke me up because you love me

    A lot of people scoff about these Google Glass devices, when in reality once they are open to purchase for everyone, sales will explode! Most people will jump on the bandwagon like they have for smart phones, tablets, and other new shiny things.

    Hooray – a hands free device! Imagine how quickly these people will eventually take an implanted microchip because now it’s totally hands/eyes free and will play a part in home automation, buying and selling, etc. Believe it.
