YouTube has released a new feature to help nonprofits and activists protect the identities of people who appear in their videos with the push of a button.
The new tool allows people posting a video to blur all of the faces appearing in their work, making it much more difficult to identify people.
In a blog post Wednesday, YouTube cautioned that the technology is still new and may have trouble detecting the faces that are supposed to be blurred, particularly if they are partially covered or at certain angles. It also warned that the system could miss a frame, which would make it possible for viewers to figure out who was in the blurred image.
